Starting date: As soon as possible, e.g. 15th October or 1st November
The Bergthaler lab at CeMM is currently recruiting an experienced Project Administrator/Data Analyst for our research on SARS-CoV-2 genomes circulating in Austria.
The successful applicant will oversee sample logistics, communicate with internal and external stakeholders, organize and manage the ensuing data, and support our efforts to obtain high quality SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences and analyze the mutational landscapes of the pandemic virus. You will join an interdisciplinary research team which has an immediate impact on national pandemic control.
The ERC-funded Bergthaler lab (http://bergthaler1.at) has long-standing interests in viral infections and immunology (e.g. Baazim H et al. Nat Immunol 2019, Lercher A et al. Immunity 2019, Lercher A et al. Immunity 2020). Together with the Biosequencing Facility at CeMM (https://www.biomedical-sequencing.org/) headed by Dr. Christoph Bock and several other partners from academia, hospitals and the public health sector, we mounted an interdisciplinary research platform to sequence SARS-CoV-2 genomes in Austria. Results from this project will directly help federal authorities to validate epidemiological clusters for the pandemic SARS-CoV-2 virus, inform about viral mutations circulating in the Austrian population as well as contribute to COVID-19-related scientific projects.
CeMM is a flagship institute for biomedical research in the heart of Europe, Vienna. CeMM is committed to highest scientific standards. The environment is very collaborative, dynamic and international. One of CeMM`s advantages is to be in close proximity to the Vienna Medical University Campus and the General Hospital (AKH). This allows the fruitful interaction of basic scientists with clinicians, and the use of models and cutting-edge technology to disease-relevant biological questions. According to a study by The Scientist, CeMM is ranked as the best European place to work in Academia 2012, internationally CeMM appears at the fourth place. The official language at CeMM is English, and more than 48 different nationalities are represented at the institute. For more information please visit: www.cemm.at.
