CeMM is an international research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a founding member of EU-LIFE. The mission of CeMM is to achieve maximum scientific innovation in molecular medicine to improve healthcare.
It has an outstanding track record of top-notch science (last few years : 10 papers in Nature / Cell / Science / NEJM, 25 papers in Nature / Cell sister journals) and medical translation.
At CeMM, an international and creative team of scientists and medical doctors pursues free-minded basic life science research in a large and vibrant hospital environment of outstanding medical tradition and practice.
CeMM's research is based on post-genomic technologies and focuses on societally important diseases, such as immune disorders and infections, cancer and metabolic disorders.
We operate in a unique mode of supercooperation, connecting biology with medicine, experiments with computation, discovery with translation, and science with society and the arts.
The goal of CeMM is to pioneer the science that nurtures the precise, personalized, predictive and preventive medicine of the future, and to train a modern blend of biomedical scientists to make great contributions.
We are recruiting a group of postdocs who are eager to pursue groundbreaking biomedical research, and we will help them to establish themselves as future scientific leaders.
This postdoc program is designed to prepare postdoctoral researchers for a successful ERC Starting Grant application and for an independent research career in top research organizations in Europe and around the world.
The postdoc program is based at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, one of Europe's leading centers for basic biomedical research - with clinical translation in mind.
Selected candidates will join one of CeMM's research groups for 3 to 6 years, addressing ambitious research questions in areas such as cancer, immunology, chemical biology, epigenetics, metabolism, and genomic medicine.
Research projects will focus on medically relevant problems, including disease mechanisms, modern therapeutics and diagnostic strategies.
On top of this, postdocs will receive extensive career development and leadership training from the entire CeMM Faculty and additional experts in a highly collaborative and supportive environment - Cancer immunology (Bock Lab).
Single-cell analysis of the tumor immune microenvironment in patients, (humanized) mouse models and immune-enriched organoids Human synthetic biology (Bock Lab).
Developing new cell-based therapies (CAR T etc.) using combinatorial bioengineering and machine learning / artificial intelligence Maintaining genome integrity (Loizou Lab).
Mechanistic investigations into how cells maintain their genomes and what goes wrong in cancer Systems biology (Menche Lab).
The arithmetic of combinatorial perturbations in molecular networks Cellular transporters (Superti-Furga Lab). Shaping biology by modulating access to chemical matter Systems biology (Superti-Furga Lab).
Regulation of the human transportome Targeted protein degradation (Winter Lab). Novel strategies to treat cancer We are open to other ideas that fit into the broader scope and mission of the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine - Candidates who want to pursue innovative biomedical research and substantially advance their scientific career Open to both PhD (natural sciences) and MD (medical sciences) holders From a variety of academic backgrounds : molecular biology, biomedical research, bioinformatics, biochemistry, bioengineering, etc.
With the motivation, skills, experiences, and initial achievements (subject to academic age) to qualify for a competitive postdoc program Required are scientific quality and originality, as well as a collaborative and interdisciplinary mindset - Life Sciences - Sciences de la vie - Biowissenschaften - Health - Santé - Gesundheit - Reference : jobs.myscience.ch / id47264
