We are extending our bioinformatics team and are seeking for two enthusiastic bioinformaticians who would like to build and advance their career in translational cancer genomics and/or spearhead the implementation of next generation sequencing methodologies in routine cancer diagnostics and precision medicine.
As a bioinformatician, you will conduct analyses of genomics data from childhood /adult cancers, hereditary diseases and cancer predisposition syndromes in close collaboration with molecular biologists, geneticists, pediatric oncologists and other bioinformaticians. Examples of recent projects include the development of bioinformatic algorithms based on long-read panel sequencing technology for diagnostic approaches as well as genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic analyses of pediatric leukemia and solid tumors on primary tumors and liquid biopsies, and the analysis of experimental model systems (e.g. Sheffield et al Nature Medicine 2017; Halbritter et al Cancer Discovery 2019; Kalinichenko A et al Blood 2021 and Popitsch et al Bioinformatics 2021; Schinnerl et al Haematologica 2019). The research institute CCRI and the diagnostic facility Labdia are also involved in several large-scale national and international research collaborations and are national reference centers for several clinical trials.
The two vacant positions are focused on acting as active members of the bioinformatics core unit and as service providers for the different research groups at the CCRI and diagnostic groups at Labdia but also offer opportunities for independent and applied research of novel bioinformatics methodologies related to the CCRI research programs.
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 Labdia Labordiagnostik GmbH (Labdia) specializes in the development and implementation of innovative diagnostic methods in the fields of hematology, oncology and infectiology in children and adolescents.
The CCRI and Labdia are equal opportunity employers. We value diversity and are committed to providing a work environment of mutual respect to everyone regardless of ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, gender identity or expression, disability, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws, regulations and ordinances.
We are looking forward to your application! Applications should at least contain your Curriculum Vitae, a cover letter, list of publications (please mark / explain your three top contributions), and the contact details of three references.
The application deadline is the 20th of October 2021. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.Meer informatie
