  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  12 fully funded Ph.D. positions at the Cologne Graduate School of Ageing Research
 Cologne Graduate School of Ageing Research. How and Why do we age? Join us and contribute to elucidate these questions!. Application deadline.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  Ameliorating ageing and age-related diseases by targeting senescent cells
  Dr S Macip, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of organs and thus lead to the normal phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases.
  The ageing bee: how does sociality affect ageing in social organisms? (BOURKEUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof A Bourke, Dr A Maklakov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Explaining patterns of ageing in organisms is essential for both our scientific understanding of the diversity of life histories and our ability to manipulate them in beneficial ways.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating new redox-signalling mechanisms that act to maintain healthy tissues during ageing
  Prof E Veal, Prof M Jackson, Dr N Conlon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Summary. This iCASE MRC studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to identify new molecular mechanisms, that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases.
  ChromDesign-ITN: Progression of 3D genome folding in neurons during ageing (subproject ESR9); Hosting institution: EMBL - European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany
  Prof Edith Heard, Prof G Cavalli
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
"ChromDesign” is a European innovative and interdisciplinary Research and Training network, which aims to characterize the impact of the 3D chromatin organization on gene regulation during cellular differentiation and in several human disorders, and to train junior researchers in the biomedical field, either in academia or in the private sector.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round
The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
