The Biomedical Sequencing Facility is Austria’s leading technology platform and service provider dedicated to genome sequencing in biomedicine – and one of the country’s largest producers of scientific ‘big data’. It is located at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and operates in close collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna.
To keep up with rapid growth, we are looking for a highly motivated Bioinformatician or Scientific Programmer who would like to contribute to the booming field of digital medicine. The successful candidate will process and analyze complex genome-wide datasets on a dedicated high-performance computing cluster available at CeMM, contributing to collaborative research projects and biomedical applications of genome sequencing technology. 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 and industry, and we encourage contribution and co-authorship in scientific publications. Importantly, genomic medicine is a hot topic in Austria and internationally, thus creating a highly promising area for future career development. Tasks and pay are commensurable with skills and performance.
