Supervisor: Dr David Gems

A Ph.D. studentship in the biology of ageing in C. elegans will be
available from 1st October, 1999. Utilizing an integrated research
approach, you will be characterizing environmental, metabolic and genetic
determinants of ageing and longevity in this well-characterised model
organism. This project will be carried out in the laboratory of Dr. David
