Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Research Fellows
The Department for “Molecular Genetics of Ageing” headed by director Prof. Dr. Adam Antebi
is looking for full time Postdoctoral Research Fellows (m/f)
About- The Antebi Department for “Molecular Genetics of Ageing” investigates how regulatory networks govern animal health and life span. We primarily use the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans and the turquoise killifish Notobranchius furzeri asmodel organisms, but also use cell culture and mouse. The overarching goals are to reveal conserved, convergent mechanisms of longevity, and to understand how immunity, metabolism, and quality control mechanisms cooperate in cellular defense. We apply a multidisciplinary approach combining genetics, systems biology, cell and molecular biology, imaging, biochemistry and mass spectrometry in order to understand the biology of ageing and age-related disease.
Research group seek a highly motivated, ambitious, and talented scientist to join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment.
Research/Job Area- Relevant research area such as molecular biology, genetics, or biochemistry
Project Title- Molecular Genetics of Ageing
Location- Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Germany
Eligibility/Qualification–The successful applicant will hold a Ph.D. in a relevant research area such as molecular biology, genetics, or biochemistry and has a strong track record of accomplishment. Prior experience with model organisms (yeast, worm, fly, mouse) would be welcome, but are not required. The applicant should have a keen interest in the biology of ageing, and excellent written and oral communication skills. The working language is English; knowledge of the German language is not required.
Job/Position Description- The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (MPI-AGE), Cologne, was founded in 2008 with the aim to understand fundamental mechanisms of healthy ageing in various model systems. The institute is part of a broad network of research institutions in the Cologne-Bonn area dedicated to research on ageing and age-related disease, constituting a vibrant and collaborative environment with state of the art facilities for research. Currently we host >270 employees from >30 different nations.
The employment contract will be based on contracts for the civil service (TVöD-Bund, Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst and will initially be time limited. The Max Planck Society is committed to employ more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply. We also seek to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and particularly encourage them to apply.
