    Opportunity: Postdoc: Technology-driven Research in Biomedicine (ERC-funded postdoctoral scientist position) @ CeMM -- Vienna, Austria
    Submitted by CeMM GmbH; posted on Saturday, May 05, 2018


    On a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) we are recruiting an ambitious postdoc who wants to develop advanced technologies for biomedical applications, including areas such as cell-based therapy, sequencing technology, CRISPR epigenome editing, advanced microscopy, targeted drug delivery, next-generation antibody/aptamer therapeutics, synthetic biology, and personalized treatment strategies for cancer and immune diseases.

    Our lab at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna combines high-throughput biology (epigenomics, single-cell sequencing, drug screening, mass spectrometry, imaging, etc.) with bioinformatics and computational methods. We are working closely with physicians at the Vienna General Hospital and the Medical University of Vienna to advance personalized/precision medicine through technology.

    The Project:
    These are exciting times for technology-driven research in biomedicine. We are broadly interested in new technologies that combine wet-lab and computational approaches, sequencing and imaging, diagnostics and devices, small molecules and biologicals, synthetic biology with cell-based therapies. If you already have a project in mind, we would like to hear from you. If not, here are a few topics for inspiration: (i) CRISPR single-cell sequencing: Building upon a recent technical breakthrough (Datlinger et al. 2017 Nature Methods), we develop new assays for high-throughput functional biology. (ii) Synthetic cancer biology: We use genome/epigenome editing to build artificial cancer cells and engineer killer cells that specifically destroy dangerous cells. (iii) Droplet devices: We are interested in scalable microfluidics that combine drugs, imaging, and sequencing; (iv) Targeted delivery: We explore new ways to deliver CRISPR in vivo to the right cells.


    The Candidate:
    We are looking for highly motivated and academically outstanding candidates who want to pursue a scientific career at the frontier of biomedical research. A strong candidate would have a wet-lab (e.g., functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) or a computational background (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. We are fully equipped and experienced with wet-lab and computational work, thus allowing candidates to get the best of both worlds and establish a unique skill set that will allow them to effectively combine wet-lab and bioinformatics in their future group.


    CeMM is located at the center of one of the largest medical campuses in Europe, within walking distance of Vienna's historical city center. A study by "The Scientist" placed CeMM among the top-5 best places to work in academia world-wide ([...]-2012). Vienna is frequently ranked the world's best city to live. It is a United Nations city with a large English-speaking community. The official language at CeMM is English, and more than 40 different nationalities are represented at the institute.


    Postdocs at CeMM are paid according to the Austrian Science Fund's salary scheme, which amounts to an annual gross salary slightly above EUR 50,000.


    The Institute (
    CeMM is an international research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a founding member of EU-LIFE. It has an outstanding track record of top-notch science (last five years: >10 papers in Nature/Cell/Science/NEJM, >25 papers in Nature/Cell sister journals) and medical translation. With just over a hundred researchers, CeMM provides a truly collaborative and personal environment, while maintaining critical mass and all relevant technologies. Research at CeMM focuses on cancer, inflammation, and immune disorders.


    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 17 June 2018 will be considered. Start dates are flexible.
