The Horizon Europe MSCA-Doctoral Network ETERNITY (“FuEl ThE bRaiN In healtThY aging and age-related diseases”) is a consortium consisting of laboratories from universities, research institutions and small-medium enterprises. ETERNITY offers a groundbreaking PhD level training in brain metabolism, focusing on metabolic and agede-related disorders. For more information, please see

We are searching for two highly motivated, science-driven early-stage researchers with a recent master’s degree (or equivalent) and a background in the experimental life science discipline. The successful candidates have good communication skills, are team players and have the necessary flexibility to adapt their work schedules to the training activities.

The group of Dr. Daniele Bano (DZNE, Bonn) offers a project aiming to investigate the impact of mitochondrial function / dysfunction in microglia development and activity upon dietary challenges in iPSC-derived microglia and in mouse models of mitochondrial diseases. Previous experience with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) is a plus.

The group of Dr. Melania Capasso (DZNE, Bonn) is looking for a student with previous experience in immunology and / or neuroscience. The project aims to assess how mitochondrial bioenergetics, in microglia or other brain cells, affects signaling pathways and the inflammatory phenotype of aged microglia, using mouse models of ageing.

We offer exciting and fully funded research projects; committed mentorship; an excellent scientific environment in a major center for translational neuroscience research; access to a well-structured doctoral program. For more information about allowance, benefits and eligibility requirements, please see:

The DZNE offers an international environment characterized by a strong focus on science and research. Our Institute is an equal opportunity employer. It is committed to employing disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.

Please submit your application to both, specifying the relevant project:
