The Antebi Department for "Molecular Genetics of Ageing" investigates how diet, reproduction, and hormones impact animal life span,
mostly using the worm Caenorhabditis elegans and killifish Notobranchius furzeri as model organisms, but also using cell culture and mouse.
The overarching goals are to reveal evolutionarily conserved, convergent mechanisms of longevity, and to understand how hormones and small
molecule metabolites affect metabolism, signal transduction and ageing. We apply a multidisciplinary approach combining, genetics, systems
biology, cell and molecular biology, imaging, biochemistry and mass spectrometry in order to understand the biology of ageing and age-related disease.
We seek a highly motivated talented person with a strong scientific background to work closely with the department head and join an enthusiastic
and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment. The applicant should have an interest in research, administration, and excellent
written and oral communication skills. The working language is bilingual German / English and a fluent knowledge of both the German and English
language (oral and written) is required.
Your tasks include
assist in mentoring scientific projects

correspondence and documentation in German and English
support with research reports
support of applications for research grants, animal experimentation
administration of the approved grants, protocols etc.
Your qualifications should include
successfully completed studies in the life sciences with a Ph.D. degree and post-doctoral experience
knowledge of mouse work and cell culture
experience in supervising and mentoring of students
high measure of responsibility, organizational talent, motivation and team spirit
very good knowledge of both German and English
experience in science administration is a plus but not mandatory
The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (MPI-AGE), Cologne, was founded in 2008 with the aim to understand fundamental mechanisms
of healthy ageing in various model systems. The institute is part of a broad network of research institutions in the Cologne-Bonn area
dedicated to research on ageing and age-related disease, constituting a vibrant and collaborative environment with state of the art
facilities for research. Currently we host >270 employees from >30 different nations.
The employment contract will be based on contracts for the civil service (TVöD-Bund, Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst) and will
initially be time limited to two years. The Max Planck Society is committed to employ more disabled individuals and especially encourages
them to apply. We also seek to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and particularly encourage them to apply.
