El Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares Carlos III (F.S.P.) (CNIC) ha sido concebido para desarrollar una investigación de excelencia, competitiva y de relevancia internacional en relación con las enfermedades cardiovasculares. El CNIC cuenta con un centro de investigación de 24.000 m2, ubicado en Madrid, con más de 6.000 m2 para laboratorios dotado de una infraestructura y un equipamiento de última generación.

The CNIC is considering applications for a Post-doctoral position as Electrophysiology cardiologist for the Molecular Cardiology Laboratory directed by Professor Silvia G Priori. The laboratory is focused on the study of mechanisms underlying an inherited arrhythmic disease called long QT Syndrome. The group is also focusing on the development of innovative advanced therapies for the treatment of this disease in order to fulfil the unmet needs of patients.

We are therefore searching for an individual with a degree in medicine and a specialization in Cardiology who has competence in performing in vivo electrophysiological studies on large mammals.
