    Opportunity: Technical Assistant, Genomics/Epigenomics in Biomedicine @ CeMM -- Vienna, Austria
    Submitted by CeMM GmbH; posted on Tuesday, April 17, 2018


    We are recruiting a technical assistant to join our work on dissecting the genetic and epigenetic basis of cancer and immune diseases using next generation sequencing. Our lab is based at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, on the campus of one of the world's largest hospitals and medical schools, pursuing an ambitious research program in molecular medicine.

    At CeMM, we take career development of our staff seriously. For example, we will train the successful candidate in state-of-the-art technologies that are in high demand in academia and industry, and we encourage contribution to and co-authorship of scientific publications. Importantly, genomic medicine is a hot topic in Austria and internationally, creating a highly promising area for a career in biomedical research and applications.


    Typical Tasks:
    • Library preparation for next generation sequencing (manually and with automated systems)
    • Next generation sequencing on Illumina machines (NovaSeq, HiSeq 3000/4000, NextSeq, Miseq, etc.)
    • Optimization and testing of new protocols, e.g. for CRISPR screens, single-cell sequencing, and epigenome editing
    • Troubleshooting of technical problems in the sample preparation and sequencing workflows
    • Contribution to lab management, training of new lab members, and scientific publications


    • Bachelor or Master degree (or equivalent) with strong wet-lab experience
    • High accuracy, reliability, precision under time pressure, and organizational skills
    • High motivation and commitment, proactive mindset, getting-things-done attitude
    • Prior experience working with DNA and/or RNA assays is mandatory. Experience with next generation sequencing is a plus
    • Friendly, collaborative mindset and ability to work well in an international environment
    • Written and oral communication skills in English (German skills are not required)
    • Motivation to work in one of the fastest-moving and most future-oriented areas of biomedicine


    Please apply online ( with cover letter, CV, academic transcripts, and contact details of three referees. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Any application received by 31 May 2018 will be considered. Start dates are flexible.
