Postdoc Position in Ageing Research

Duration: 36month and with the possibility of extension

The department of Neurology at the University Hospital Jena (Head: Prof. O.W. Witte) coordinates an international project in Ageing Research funded by the European Union. During the first part of the project we applied large scale methods (Proteomics, RNomics, Metabolomics, Lipidomics) to acquire data from aged and ischemic brains as well as from blood samples. We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher to analyze these data statistically with respect to regulation mechanisms and to compare data of different level (e.g. RNA vs. Protein).
