    ABOUT US

    Who we are:
    The St. Anna Children's Cancer Research Institute (CCRI), located in the center of Vienna, the world's most livable city and one of Europe's most important places for biomedical research and life sciences, is an international and multidisciplinary competence center striving to improve treatment of children and adolescents with cancer by connecting translational and clinical research with open-minded exploration of basic disease mechanisms. Through close cooperation between clinic and research, the CCRI provides an ideal environment for cutting-edge research and its translation into clinical practice. To achieve our ultimate goal of advancing the well-being of patients, the CCRI constantly pushes scientific boundaries and strongly promotes close collaboration and exchange with external institutions like the Medical University of Vienna, CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA) and the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP).

    The Lab (www.tomazoulab.org):
    Under the leadership of Eleni M. Tomazou, the Epigenome-based Precision Medicine lab at CCRI dissects epigenetic deregulation as an oncogenic mechanism, with a focus on fusion-driven pediatric sarcomas. The group studies how fusion proteins rewire healthy cells for malignancy, with the perspective of exploiting this knowledge for improving pediatric sarcoma therapy. Cutting edge technologies and several model systems are exploited to investigate:
    • Non-genetic mechanisms of tumor formation orchestrated by oncogenic fusion proteins
    • Contribution of the cellular state of the corresponding cell of origin to cancer development
    • Epigenetic heterogeneity as source of cellular plasticity providing novel therapeutic paradigms

    In 2020 we were awarded an Athena SWAN Silver Award. We will consider all individuals without discrimination and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees, where everyone can thrive.

    DESCRIPTION

    The Biodesign Center for Fundamental and Applied Microbiomics is seeking an Open-Rank Research Technologist, Bioinformatician in Dr. Efrem Lim's lab (viromelab.org). The Lim lab is conducting SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance studies by using next-generation sequencing to decode the SARS-CoV-2 virus genome of COVID-19 cases. This information is used to track how the virus is evolving and identify new variants. Variants may harbor mutations that affect antibody responses, binding ability to the host cell receptor, diagnostic tests and COVID-19 disease. Hence, genomic sequencing surveillance has broad impacts for public health responses.

    The candidate will be joining an experienced bioinformatics team to analyze next-generation sequencing data of SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences and study the evolution of the virus using phylogenetics. To improve the usefulness of these genomic data on the ground, the team will be developing an app tool to analyze sequences and report important mutations. This will be deployed as a dashboard to visualize emergent trends of SARS-CoV-2 in the US. The lab has extensive experience in SARS-CoV-2 variants. For example, the Lim lab identified the first B.1.1.7 cases in Arizona and the newly emergent Arizona variant B.1.243.1.
