PhD position: Functional Genomics of Ageing 494 views

The Research Group “Genetics and Biomarkers of Human Ageing” headed by Dr. Joris Deelen at Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing is looking for a PhD student (m/f/d) in “Functional genomics of ageing” (job code 06-2020).

About the research:
  • The research group investigates genetics and biomarkers of human ageing using different model organisms (i.e. fruit flies and mice) and cellular models, as well as samples from old human individuals (≥70 years of age).
  • The proposed research project combines in vivo phenotyping with molecular biology to study how genetic variants involved in healthy ageing in humans influence metabolism in model organisms.
  • Applicant must be a talented, dynamic, highly motivated young scientist to join our enthusiastic and collaborative team in an excellent scientific environment.
  • Specifically applicants with a background in mouse metabolic phenotyping, cell culture and/or CRISPR/Cas9.


  • Candidate must hold a master’s degree/diploma in Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or a related field.
  • Candidate should have strong written and oral communication skills and a collaborative mind-set.
  • The working language is English; knowledge of the German language is not required.
