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. 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.
