PhD position in “preclinical imaging of senescence during inflammation” (f/m/d) 65%

We are looking for enthusiastic and highly motivated candidates, eager to answer highly relevant biomedical questions and evolve in a multidisciplinary environment notably using state of the art imaging techniques. Inflammaging, or the slowly developing low grade inflammation process in aging organisms is now thought to be a fertile soil for a myriad of life altering inflammatory diseases. It is suspected that this progression goes hand in hand with an increasing number of senescent cells, which could give a new window of opportunity for innovative diagnosis and therapeutic approaches for chronic inflammatory diseases. With this project, we aim at elucidating the role of senescent cells in sterile chronic inflammation, in particular during rheumatoid arthritis.

Lab rotations and Master Thesis:

We are looking for motivated and talented Master students in the field of biology, biochemistry or medical technologies eager to work and evolve in a highly interdisciplinary environment for a project on the role of senescence in lung diseases. This project aims at investigating cellular changes during the onset of fibrosis first at the in vitro level using cell culture and analysis techniques, with a view on in vivo application using PET and MRI imaging.
