Institute for Metabolism Research and the Centerof Advanced European 
Studies and Research (caesar). The Cologne/Bonn area has emerged as a 
leading global research cluster with a stellar constellation of 
institutes and scientists dedicated to ageing research in Life Sciences.

We offer up to12 fully funded Ph.D. positions to highly motivated and 
talented students. The structured Ph.D. training programme within a

and conditions under collective bargaining law are fulfilled or on an 
equivalently remunerated Ph.D. support contract of the Max Planck Society.

prestigious ageing research cluster in Europe
•Excellent infrastructure for training and research by internationally 
recognized scientists in facilities with state-of-the-art technologies
