Positions by 99Science

Institute of Molecular Biotechnology is one of the leading biomedical research institutes in Europe, focusing on cutting-edge functional
genomics and stem cell-derived organoid technologies. IMBA is located at the Vienna BioCenter, the vibrant cluster of universities, research institutes and biotech companies in Austria. We offer two master student positions in the Mendjan lab starting as soon as possible. The Mendjan group is interested in exploring human cardiac organogenesis and pathogenesis mechanisms using the recently established
self-organizing chamber-like heart organoids called cardioids (Hofbauer et al., Cell 2021). Cardioids are a powerful new tool to study how the human heart develops, beats, and grows to serve as a new generation of much-
needed predictive cardiovascular disease models:
