We are recruiting a research technician who wants to contribute to cutting-edge biomedical research in a highly ambitious, collaborative, and international environment. 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.
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, industry, and the medical sector. 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.
The Medical Epigenomics Lab at CeMM seeks to advance precision medicine through collaborative, technology-driven biomedical research, developing wet-lab and computational methods and investigating the epigenetic (de)regulation underlying cancer and immunity.
Christoph Bock is a Principal Investigator at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Professor of [Bio]Medical Informatics at the Medical University of Vienna. He is also the scientiﬁc coordinator of the Biomedical Sequencing Facility at CeMM and co-founder of a Vienna-based start-up company (Myllia Biotechnology). He has received major research awards, including an ERC Starting Grant (2016-2021), an ERC Consolidator Grant (2021-2026), the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society (2009), the Overton Prize of the International Society for Computational Biology (2017), and the Erwin Schrödinger Prize of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (2022).
CeMM is one of Europe’s leading biomedical research institutes. CeMM researchers routinely publish important discoveries in top journals. Over the last seven years, this included >10 papers in Nature/Cell/Science/NEJM and >30 papers in Nature/Cell sister journals – with a team of 120-150 scientists. Research at CeMM is exceptionally collaborative and has strong focus on medical impact, based on a profound molecular understanding of diseases such as cancer and immune disorders.
CeMM is part of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a founding member of EU-LIFE. It 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” put CeMM among the top-5 best places to work in academia worldwide (https://www.the-scientist.com/features/best-places-to-work-academia-2012-40676). 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 >45 different nationalities are represented at the institute. CeMM promotes equal opportunity and harbors a mix of different talents, backgrounds, competences, and interests.
