The Leibniz Graduate School on Ageing belongs to the Leibniz Association -  a non-university research organisation equivalent to the Max Planck Society and the Helmholtz Association.
The Graduate School offers an international postgraduate programme for students with excellent qualifications. The participating research groups work on Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Cancer Biology, Neurobiology and Structural Biology  to investigate the multifaceted mechanisms that cause the development of age-related diseases and those that cause senescence and ageing.
 
 Training and research within the PhD program is interdisciplinary. Lecture series, seminars, journal clubs and courses as well as training in presentation skills and language classes complement the practical work. A thesis committee provides comprehensive support and the mentorship in the career development of the student. The programme language is English.   The salary will be according to German TV-L E 13 (salary agreement for public service employees - 50 % position during the first and second year and a 60 % position during the third and fourth year).

Eligible are students that have obtained, or that will obtain within half a year, an academic degree comparable to the master degree or diploma in natural sciences (e.g. Biology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Physics, and Chemistry) with excellent marks.
