Default Medical Genomics Specialist (CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine, Vienna)

A more complete PDF version of this job posting is available from the following URL:

We are looking for a medical genomics specialist to advance our personal genome sequencing efforts at the Biomedical Sequencing Facility, the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Medical University of Vienna.

The Institute []
The CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine is an international and interdisciplinary research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Driven by medical needs, CeMM integrates basic research and clinical expertise to pursue innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches focused on cancer, inflammation and immune disorders. CeMM is located in a new tailor-made building at the center of the Vienna Medical University campus, within walking distance of Vienna’s historical city center. According to a study by “The Scientist”, CeMM is among the top-5 best places to work in academia world-wide ( 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, as more than 30 different nationalities are represented.

The Biomedical Sequencing Facility []
CeMM and the Medical University of Vienna (MUV) recently joined forces and launched the Biomedical Sequencing Facility (BSF), which is coordinated by CeMM Principal Investigator Christoph Bock. The goals of the BSF are to foster biomedical research and to catalyze the development of genomic medicine in Vienna and Austria. The BSF is currently equipped with two Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencers and a high-throughput robotics pipeline for automated library preparation. Further machine purchases are planned for 2013/2014. The BSF is also supported by a powerful scientific computing cluster, which is upgraded annually to keep pace with strongly increasing amounts of biomedical data. Genomics protocols that are routinely run by the BSF include: whole-genome sequencing, exome sequencing, epigenome mapping by ChIP-seq and whole-genome bisulfite sequencing, and transcriptome mapping by various forms of RNA-seq. Furthermore, the BSF collaborates with clinical labs at the MUV toward establishing personal genome sequencing as part of clinical diagnostics.

Associated Labs at CeMM
- The Medical Epigenomics lab is headed by Dr. Christoph Bock and studies the contribution of epigenetic defects to cancer, utilizing both experimental and computational methods ( and
- The Pediatric Immunogenomics lab is headed by Dr. Kaan Boztug, focusing on the work on the genetics and genomics of primary immundeficiencies, congenital bone marrow failure syndromes and malignant disorders of childhood (
- The Cancer Genomics lab is headed by Dr. Robert Kralovics, investigating the genomic basis of chronic and acute hematological malignancies (
- In addition to these three labs (which are physically co-located with the BSF), the BSF maintains a broad network of collaborators across Vienna’s medical campus as well as nationally and internationally.

The Candidate
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong interest in contributing to the genomics revolution of biomedicine. All candidates should have an undergraduate degree in biology or in a related discipline and extensive practical experience working with human samples and diseases, either in a research setting or in a routine diagnostics laboratory. A PhD in a relevant field and/or a medical degree (e.g., an MD with or without completed specialization) is an important plus and would allow for a more independent role within the BSF. On the other hand, we are committed to training promising candidates that lack prior experience in NGS technologies, provided that they have extensive prior experience in world-class research institutions or in a leading medical center. Finally, given that CeMM works in highly competitive areas at the forefront of biomedical research, intellectual curiosity, flexibility and dedication to science will be key success factors.

Please submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts and contact details of three referees to Please refer to Medical Genomics Specialist in the subject line.
Application deadline: 31 July 2013.
