About the ERIBA/UMCG
The central theme at the ERIBA is the molecular mechanism of (cellular) ageing. We aim to identify physiological and molecular changes that can explain the loss of cells and functional decline of cells and tissues with age. For this, we make use of state of the art technology and a variety of model organisms. Furthermore, we heavily invest in Systems Biology to integrate our findings in the various mechanisms of ageing that have been proposed. The ERIBA is housed in a brand new building and part of the central UMCG campus in central Groningen, a small (200.000 inhabitants) but vibrant city (with over 25.000 students) in the north of the Netherlands.
About the CEHA/UCPH
The Center for Healthy Aging (CEHA) at UCPH is a network of research units among the world-leading interdisciplinary research centres aiming at the study of biological, psychological, social, and cultural factors that influence health and wellbeing at an individual and a societal level. CEHA harbours state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for the study of molecular mechanisms regulating aging and is a host to world-renown aging researchers.
Conditions of employment
It concerns a full time work week (36 hours) for a period of four years to be concluded with a PhD examination.
