Vacant postdoctoral position at Center for Healthy Aging
A postdoctoral position is available at The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM).
The position is for 3 years with a start date of 1 January 2022, or upon agreement.
Genome instability and mitochondrial dysfunction are hallmarks of the aging process and age-associated neurodegenerative disorders. The Bohr research group has identified a signaling process linking persistent nuclear DNA damage response to mitochondrial dysfunction in human tissues and animals models of several human accelerated aging syndromes and neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimers disease.
The incumbent will be working on the interphase of DNA repair and mitochondrial dysfunction in aging age-related disease. Using human cells, mouse models and the worm, C.elegans, the goals are to further gain insight into mechanisms and pathways involved.
Application deadline: 31 October 2021, 23.59 p.m. CET.
