Postdoc on aging research

The Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute e.V. (FLI) is a research institute situated in Jena, a lively and international University City right in the middle of Thuringia. Our research aims at 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 30 different nations conduct research at FLI.
