4 year PhD studentship in the IHA available

A 4 year PhD studentship to study under the supervision of Dr Nazif Alic is now available. The project will examine how genetically or pharmacologically induced changes to gene expression, at the level of transcriptional regulation, extend healthy lifespan in Drosophila melanogaster. To explore this question the student will use a broad range of techniques, including fly genetics and physiology, molecular biology, microscopy, protein chemistry and genomics. The student will gain a broad training in basic biogerontology that will prove relevant to a career in any of the currently relevant aspects of ageing and ageing related-disease. More...

Location

The Institute of Healthy Ageing is situated within University College London's main campus on Gower Street and forms part of the Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment. This is the ideal location for an interdisciplinary institute, given our close proximity to a wide range of research institutes and hospitals in which ageing-related work is carried out; these include the UCL Institute of Neurology, the UCL Institute of Child Health, the London School of Pharmacy, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College Hospital.

We are located in the Darwin Building, see Maps of UCL
