Fifteen PhD positions are available for highly motivated Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions as part of the new H2020, EU-funded, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Joint Training and Research Programmeon Lifespan Regulation Mechanisms in Health and Disease "HealthAge"

The "HealthAge" consortium is a joint European Program of excellence in training and research with a core intellectual focus on, chromatin dynamics, DNA damage signaling and repair mechanisms and their impact on development and disease. aDDRess-ITN (https://www.itn-healthage.gr/) brings together leading academic and industry research groups located throughout EU to train a new generation of researchers. We are now looking for 15 highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to work towards their PhD on on Lifespan Regulation Mechanisms in Health and Disease.
