Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (IMPRS-Age)
Logo
The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing in Cologne invites applications for

a Postdoctoral Position / a Phd Position in Biology of Ageing (m/f)

We seek a talented, dynamic, highly motivated young scientist to join our department for Biological Mechanisms of Ageing, (http://www.age.mpg.de/science/research-labs/partridge) headed by Director Prof. Linda Partridge. We are interested in applicants with a background in mouse biology and/or high-throughput data analysis.
The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an excellent scientific environment. The department investigates mechanisms of ageing and ageing-associated diseases, using the fruit fly Drosophila and the mouse as experimental model organisms. Our work combines in vivo phenotyping with high-throughput techniques (proteomics, metabolomics, RNA-Seq, Bisulfite-Seq), molecular biology, biochemistry and high-resolution imaging to study how pharmacological, dietary and genetic interventions extend health and lifespan in mice.
The post is available from the earliest time point.
