The Lab of Joanna Loizou investigates cellular pathways that are required to maintain genome stability to suppress disease. The team is now seeking a highly motivated Technical Assistant who will use CRISPR-Cas9 approaches for genome engineering, in human cellular systems. The person will use gene-editing to create specific mutations relevant to disease and also perform large scale CRISPR screens. The Research Assistant will work as part of a diverse and international team that comprises other technicians, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. This project is part of an exciting ERC funded initiative and will involve collaborations with two other international teams. Our ultimate goal is to understand how cells maintain genome stability to identify better treatments for human diseases such as cancer and other diseases associated with DNA repair defects.
We are a group of 150 scientists from 45 nations situated in a beautiful, bright and perfectly designed building (inaugurated in 2011). We have state-of-the-art technologies and are neighbours with one of the largest research hospitals in Europe. Vienna is a fascinating capital city, with world-leading quality of life, and legendary music and culture. CeMM has been voted best place to work in academia in a 2012 survey of The Scientist, is an equal opportunity employer, and the official working language at CeMM is English.
The mission of CeMM, the Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences is to achieve maximum scientific innovation in molecular medicine to improve healthcare. At CeMM, an international and creative team of scientists and medical doctors pursues free-minded basic life science research in a large and vibrant hospital environment of outstanding medical tradition and practice. CeMM’s research is based on post-genomic technologies and focuses on societally important diseases, such as immune disorders and infections, cancer and metabolic disorders. We operate in a unique mode of super-cooperation, connecting biology with medicine, experiments with computation, discovery with translation, and science with society and the arts, and train a modern blend of biomedical scientists to make great contributions. The goal of CeMM is to pioneer the science that nurtures the precise, personalized, predictive and preventive medicine of the future. CeMM aims to promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, competences and potential. We welcome applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.
We offer a challenging position in a meaningful, inspiring, international setting, with an excellent work climate and the possibility to join our social (cultural or sports) activities.
