Postdoc Position at Leibniz Institute on Aging

The Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute e.V. (FLI) is a research institute, which has the objective of understanding the molecular mechanisms of aging. Thereby we would like to contribute to healthy aging in humans. Various animal models (e.g. mice and fish) help us to generate relevant knowledge on the causes and the mechanisms of age-associated diseases and to investigate new therapeutic approaches. Scientists from many different nations conduct research at FLI.
 
The Molecular Genetics Group of the Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz-Lipmann-Institute e.V. in Jena invites applications for a

Postdoc Position
 
The group studies aspects of organogenesis, organ regeneration and aging in different model organisms. The particular position is within the Nothobranchius project:

About Leibniz-Institut für Alternsforschung

Außeruniversitäre Forschungseinrichtung Mitglied der Leibniz Gemeinschaft  (WGL) Our Mission Human ageing is a multifactorial process controlled by both environmental and genetic factors. Our mission is to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie the ageing process and that lead to age-related diseases. We hope that eventually this knowledge can contribute...
