The project objective is to contribute to higher employability of the graduates of doctoral programs. Under the project, a position will be created for one postdoc, who will be integrated into the International Clinical Research Center (FNUSA-ICRC) to the “Development of New Strategies for Early Diagnosis and Advanced Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease” research program. The research program is coordinated by doc. MUDr. Tomáš Kára, Ph.D.

Apart from scientific research, the postdoc will participate in the educational activities of FNUSA-ICRC (lecturing for pre-graduate students, expert discussions with doctors before attestation and postgraduate students). The partial objective of the project is to support mobility between research institutions. The postdoc will be given an opportunity to complete a fellowship at Mayo Clinic for a period of 6 months, where s/he will be integrated into an outstanding research team in the Laboratory of Cardiovascular Physiology and in the Cardiovascular Sleep Research Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. It is one of the best scientific laboratories in its field in the world. In the course of project duration, the postdoc will present all his/her research results and outputs at international foreign conferences, the total number of conferences in the USA where participation is planned being four.

The project is financed from the European Social Fund and from the state budget of the Czech Republic under the Education for Competitiveness Operational Program.
