Position for Master thesis in aging research in the Bierhoff/Ermolaeva labs

We have positions available for Master thesis in molecular aging research.
The work will be done in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans,  focusing on changes in gene regulation and metabolism during aging. 

Techniques that will be used are:
 – gene manipulation by RNAi
 – transcript analysis by RT-qPCR
 – (fluorescent) microscopy
 – lifespan analysis

 The work will be done in the CMB and in the Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI)
