Postdoc in high altitude physiology


Our multi center research group (Bolzano - Italy, Milano - Italy, Innsbruck - Austria) studies the physiological and pathophysiological effects of high altitude exposure in humans. The focus of the postdoc will be a project investigating the effects of hypoxia pre-conditioning on physiological responses during mountain sport activities in persons with a history of coronary artery disease. Experiments will be conducted in the terraXcube, the novel environmental simulator at EURAC Research (https://terraxcube.eurac.edu) Bolzano – Italy. The part time position (50%) will start in January 2021 and last for two years. The candidate will work in Bolzano (Institute of Mountain Emergency Medicine, Eurac Research) and in Milano (Istituto Auxologico Italiano, IRCCS).

 

Tasks:

  • Study preparation (e.g., methodology development, subject recruitment)
  • Coordinating and supervising the subjects' sojourns in the terraXcube and the intermittent hypoxia program
  • Application of methodological interventions and measurements (e.g., autonomic control, ventilation, etc.) during day- and partly night-time.
  • Analysis and publication of results
  • Participation in other activities at the Institute of Mountain Emergency Medicine

 

Requirements:

  • PhD in biology, physiology, or similar or a MD
  • Background in integrative human physiology and an interest in high altitude/hypoxia
  • Motivation to conduct a logistically and methodologically challenging project
  • Good English and Italian skills (oral and written)
