*Are you enthusiastic about tomorrow’s ageing research? Is your heart beating for medicine, research and teaching? Then this is the right place for you! *
For the Clinician Scientist Program “Organ Dysfunction in Old Age: Perspectives for Young Clinician Scientists (OrganAge)”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), we are looking for 8 motivated physicians in their residency with an interest in science, who want to conduct research in translational, patient-oriented or basic research in the field of ageing medicine. In recent years, ageing research has yielded many very exciting findings. Join us in creating the fountain of youth!
The program will start in the middle of the year. Apply now as a
Clinician Scientist (m/f/x)
in the Clinician Scientist Program OrganAge
Due to changing demographics and increasing life expectancy, the number of elderly patients is continuously increasing. The treatment of old and very old people is becoming increasingly important for medicine. Since ageing is associated with loss of function and diseases of many organs, various tasks arise which require interdisciplinary cooperation in research, patient care and teaching. In the Clinician Scientist Program OrganAge we want to investigate ageing mechanisms and establish new therapeutic interventions. We adopt an interdisciplinary approach of the various clinical departments. Accordingly, the participating physicians (Clinician Scientists) will be trained in translational, patient-oriented or basic ageing research and the field of ageing medicine will be further strengthened.
We welcome applications from candidates fulfilling the following criteria
• candidates interested in translational, patient-oriented or basic research, seeking a qualification as a Clinician Scientist in the field of ageing medicine
• physicians in their residency with special interest and aptitude for scientific work who have generally completed 1-2 years of training
• candidates holding a PhD
• candidates with a high level of motivation and enthusiasm, good communication and teamwork skills and good language proficiency in English
We offer an outstanding interdisciplinary research environment as well as
• the possibility to realize an independent research project
• the possibility to perform the scientific and clinical training during the program period
• a protected research time with a stipulated research portion which can be flexibly and individually designed (on average 50 %), and exemption from clinical activity
• budget for consumables
• a career and mentoring program
• a qualification program with soft skill training, and participation in workshops, retreats, scientific meetings and congresses
• a constant evaluation program
