Offer Description

The Leibniz Graduate School on Aging and Age-Related Diseases (LGSA) is a joint program of the Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) and the Friedrich Schiller University (FSU) in Jena. Our institute integrates all PhD candidates into the graduate school, irrespective of the future source of financial support .

The Leibniz Graduate School on Aging and Age-Related Diseases (LGSA) belongs to the Leibniz Association – a non-university research organization equivalent to the Max Planck Society and the Helmholtz Association.

The Graduate School offers an international postgraduate program for students with excellent qualifications. The participating research groups work on Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Cancer Biology, Immunology and Neurobiology to investigate the multifaceted mechanisms that cause the development of age-related diseases and those that cause senescence and ageing.

Training and research within the PhD program is interdisciplinary. Lecture series, seminars, journal clubs and courses as well as training in presentation skills and language classes complement the practical work. A thesis committee provides comprehensive support and the mentorship in the career development of the student. The program language is English.
