Postdoc Position

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.

Our new Research group of Dr. Björn von Eyss at the Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz-Lipmann-Institute e.V. in Jena invites applications for a

Expected starting date is October 1st 2016

Research focus of the lab/Research projects:
The group studies aspects of transcriptional control in the context of the Hippo pathway, especially its role during tissue homeostasis, regeneration and tumor development. Please have a look at our website:

Profile of the Candidate / Requirements:
> highly self-motivated with a genuine interest in transcriptional control and/or Hippo biology
> very good team-working capabilities
> know-how in molecular biology, especially next-generation sequencing methods
> experience in biochemical methods
> experience in animal work, transgenesis, tissue processing
> experience with CRISPR/Cas9 technology

We offer:
> a position in a well-equipped research group of a high quality institute for age research, which harbors several state-of-the-art facilities. Our work is embedded in the Beutenberg Campus, an interdisciplinary base for innovative research.
> a position integrated in the FLI PostDoc Network. The Network promotes interdisciplinary collaborations.
> a contract which is limited to two years initially. The contract conditions and the salary will be according to the collective labor agreement for public service employees of the federal states of Germany (TV-L E13).

Candidates are encouraged to send their application referring the Job-ID 1615 including CV, list of publication, a short description of research experience and interests, and the contact details of two references as soon as possible, not later than June 19th 2016.

Über 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...
