    Opportunity: Open Position for Master Student in Bioinformatic Analysis of Infections @ CeMM -- Vienna, Austria
    Submitted by CeMM GmbH; posted on Thursday, February 13, 2020


    Project title: Single-cell analysis of viral infection

    In the laboratory of Dr. Andreas Bergthaler at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine in Vienna, Austria, we study pertinent pathophysiological questions linked to viral infections, inflammation and immunity. A major aspect of our research is the integration of data-driven approaches to our biological research at the host-pathogen interface and pathology. We have acquired extensive, in-depth knowledge of host responses to viral infection emphasizing complex interactions between different organs and the immune system (e.g. Lercher A et al. Immunity 2019 DOI:[...]0.014; Baazim H et al. Nature Immunology 2019 DOI:[...]397-y; Bhattacharya A et al. Immunity 2015 DOI:[...]0.013). In this context, we look for an ambitious Master student with Bioinformatics background to model the dynamics of viral infection at the single-cell level.

    As a Master student in the Bergthaler lab, you will be co-supervised by the Senior Data Analyst Dr. Alexandra Popa. You will analyze single-cell data from virus infected organs, build robust machine learning models to label cells as well as their dynamics across infection timelines and perform analyses on interaction and biological pathways of the observed changes.

    As a member of the Bergthaler team, you will be part of cutting-edge research projects and will have the opportunity to model and integrate multiple types of data, from single-cell transcriptomics to proteomics and metabolomics. As a member of the host institution CeMM, you will be integrated in a highly collaborative environment and benefit from in-house generated large datasets of next-generation sequencing, proteomics and metabolomics. You will also be part of the vibrant community of bioinformaticians and attend bi-weekly bioinformatics meetings at CeMM.

    The Lab: The principal investigator Dr. Bergthaler received training in premier laboratories at the University and ETH Zurich, University of Tokyo and at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle. His team consists of ten members representing seven nationalities and different scientific backgrounds, who closely collaborate across projects. The Bergthaler lab is supported by competitive funding from the European Research Council (ERC), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
