The Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI), Jena (Germany), is a federal and state government-funded research institute and member of the Leibniz Association (Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e.V.). FLI’s internationally visible and highly competitive research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of aging and associated agerelated 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 health in the elderly (www.leibniz-fli.de).
The Research Group “Proteomics of Aging” headed by Dr. Alessandro Ori invites applications for a Postdoc (m/f/d).
Tasks and Challenges:
The Research Group is interested in studying how age and environmental factors affect our organs at the molecular level.
The group employs ultra-sensitive approaches allowing the quantification of thousands of proteins in tissues as well as in rare cell populations. The group’s goal is to identify, in an unbiased way, functionally relevant alterations of the proteome that will enable the researchers to understand the mechanisms of organ deterioration that impact on healthy lifespan.
This project (funded by the Fritz-Thyssen foundation) builds on an ongoing collaboration with the group of Monther Abu-Remaileh (Stanford), see for example Wyannt, Abu-Remaileh et al., Science 2018. It will take advantage of cutting edge proteomics and metabolomics approaches as well as novel mouse models to study lysosome physiology in the context of inherited human disorders. Frequent exchanges between the two groups and research stays in Stanford are planned to carry out this ambitious project.
- A position in a well-equipped Research Group of an international institute for aging research, which harbours several stateof-the-art facilities. Our institute is embedded in the Beutenberg Campus, an interdisciplinary base for innovative research.
- A position integrated in the FLI PostDoc Network. The Network promotes support for career development and fosters interdisciplinary collaborations involving clinician scientists, basic scientists and bioinformaticians.
- A contract which is limited for the project duration. The contract conditions and the salary will be according to the collective labour agreement TV-L (TV-L E13) including flexible working time and a family friendly working atmosphere.
Candidates are encouraged to send their application (Job-ID 20/05) latest by June 30th, 2020.
