to join the Giulio Superti-Furga Laboratory at CeMM in the frame of an Academia-Pharma collaboration
Period: September 2019 until min. 31 January 2020
The Superti-Furga laboratory at CeMM in Vienna is contributing to the scientific fundaments of precision medicine. The lab’s work addresses the mechanisms by which cells respond to challenges that perturb homeostasis, may these challenges be drugs, viruses or oncogenic mutations, and how homeostasis can subsequently be restored. Strategically, the laboratory investigates large networks of proteins, genes and metabolites, while also focusing on the mechanistic understanding of individual proteins, protein complexes and drug function. In recent years, the laboratory has focused on understanding the interplay of membrane transporters, which can be considered the managers of the interface between chemistry and biology, and between organisms and their environment.
We are currently looking for an experienced, highly motivated scientist to join our team investigating solute carriers in tight collaboration with a pharma partner. Ideally, you should have an excellent background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry, and a good publication record.
This position is perfectly suited for an experienced scientist who is open for a short-term position in an international, academic environment in collaboration with an industrial partner and is eager to show his skills and use them to excel our project.
PhD degree or extensive experience in a relevant field (e.g. molecular biology, biochemistry)
Excellent skill sets in performing and documenting experiments (e.g. molecular biology, cell culture, biochemistry)
Team player with strong communication skills and a proactive mindset
Excellent command of English
Challenging position in a great team and in a meaningful, inspiring and international setting
Competitive salary: This position is remunerated with a minimum yearly (gross) salary of EUR 48.000,- on a full time base. The definite salary will be based on qualification and experience.

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 45 different nationalities are represented at the institute. For more information please visit: www.cemm.at
