Research Fellow in Interventional Cardiology


Research Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology (PhD)

We are seeking a Research Fellow in Interventional Cardiology to join our team at the Department of Cardiology at Heart and Vascular Center/Maastricht UMC+ and Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM)  in the Netherlands. This will be a full-time, 4-year position with the opportunity to earn a PhD upon completion.

The rise of structural valve interventions and minimal invasive surgical procedures have changed the clinical pathways of patients presenting with mitral valve disease. No longer are we looking for a superior treatment of intervention, but we must choose the best treatment for the individual patient. Your research will focus on the implementation of clinical care and research pathways to improve this decision-making process. You will have a leading role in the management and further development of the supraregional SMILE (Significant Mitral Insufficiency Limburg Evaluation) registry and the PRECISION-M (Personalised Care for Patients with Mitral Valve Disease) registry. 

In addition, your research will address the following issues:

  • Which intervention is best for which patient and when is the most appropriate time to intervene on a diseased mitral valve?
  • How will the intervention affect atrial function? 
  • What is the role of atrial function and atrial failure in mitral valve disease, and in post-intervention outcomes and quality of life (QOL)?

The candidate should have a Master degree in Medicine or Biomedical Science or will soon get this degree.

If you are interested in joining our team, please submit your CV and a cover letter outlining your relevant experience and qualifications to
