Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht


Studies in ERIBA are aimed at elucidating the mechanisms of ageing and age-associated diseases using state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure. The goal of studies within ERIBA is to discover novel mechanisms explaining the loss of cells and the functional decline in cells and tissues with age, as well as the connection between various mechanisms of ageing that have been proposed. These mechanisms include (but are not limited to): changes in mitochondrial function and metabolism; deregulation of cell cycle checkpoints and defective DNA repair; telomere attrition and loss of genome integrity; epigenetic damage and aberrant expression of genes and retroelements; cellular senescence and chronic inflammation; and defects in protein production, quality control and function.


We are specifically looking for an investigator with:
- a track record of creative, innovative research
- an interest in multidisciplinary, collaborative research
- unique approaches to studies in relevant areas
The ideal candidate is committed to cutting-edge science, has a broad research interest and a strong research plan that complements the expertise and research programs of the current ERIBA groups. Given the multidisciplinary nature of ongoing and future studies in ERIBA, we are specifically interested if candidates have developed or implemented novel techniques or approaches to address their own research questions.


We offer an exceptional opportunity to pursue ageing-related research questions in a state-of-the-art institute that was established in 2012. Academic appointments are within the attractive tenure track system of the University Medical Center Groningen. The selected candidate will receive a competitive start-up package commensurate to their qualification and experience.

In addition, the UMCG will offer you 8% holiday pay, an 8.3% end-of-year bonus and a development budget. The terms of employment comply with the Collective Labour Agreement for Medical Centers (CAO-UMC).
