The Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) in Jena is a federal and state government-funded research institute and member of the Leibniz Association (Leibniz-Gemeinschaft). FLI’ s internationally visible and highly competitive research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of aging and associated age-related diseases. Scientists from over 40 countries are currently investigating the molecular mechanisms of aging and the occurrence of age-related diseases. Our aim is to create the basis for new approaches in medicine as a way to improve the health of the elderly (www.leibniz-fli.de).
The research group led by Prof. Dr. Christoph Englert at FLI is seeking for a highly motivated and talented Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/x) to join their team:
Tasks and Challenges:
The candidate will explore the genetic basis of aging and regeneration with a focus on senescence and reprogramming. The candidate will use various experimental techniques such as molecular cloning and
cell culture work, additionally state-of-the-art technologies including genomic engineering, various sequencing applications as well as proteomics.
The ideal candidate should have experience in any of these technologies mentioned above, be scientifically independent, able to plan, discuss and communicate at high level all aspects of the project, including data analysis. In addition, the candidate will be involved in the supervision of students at different levels of training.
