Job Description

To support a highly active and extremely productive team of twenty scientists with core computational analyses, statistical evaluation and expert visualization of complex data, we are seeking a computational scientist. The candidate should have a degree either in computational science/engineering or biology. The candidate needs to be able to adapt and expertly use existing bioinformatics tools, have good statistical and script programming skills/experience (e.g. R - bioconductor, python, MATLAB) and interest in developing data analysis protocols/pipelines for large screening experiments. Experience in developing more complex software and algorithms is a bonus. Good command of the English language and good interpersonal skills are a must.

The Laboratory

The Superti-Furga laboratory consists of a highly collaborative team of 22 scientists from 11 nations. In the last three years, we published about 70 papers, among which 10% in Nature, Science or Cell and 15 in Nature sister journals. Historically, 23 postdocs published on average 9,5 papers within our lab (0-25) that were on average cited 686 times. More than 50% of postdocs went on to independent positions, two went to work as clinicians. None abandoned research. You will enjoy a supportive mentoring from the PI and profit from a budding Postdoc training program both at CeMM, with the other life science institutes in Vienna and, internationally, within the highly active and unique network of excellence of the 13 EU-Life institutes: Please visit our lab’s website:
