The Bergthaler lab at CeMM is currently recruiting a highly motivated Technical Assistant for our research on SARS-CoV-2 genomes circulating in Austria. In your role as Technical Assistant you will support our team with administrative and technical tasks. Together with our team you will help receive and process sample shipments, including manage sample storage and review of shipment information documentation as well as prepare samples for our Whole Genome Sequencing pipeline according to standard procedures and quality agreements. In addition, you will take on technical development, support in experiment design and data analysis for Next Generation Sequencing queries, while working closely with both our team and the Biomedical Sequencing Facility (BSF).
The ERC-funded Bergthaler lab (http://bergthaler1.at) has long-standing interests in viral infections and immunology (e.g. Baazim H et al. Nat Immunol 2019, Lercher A et al. Immunity 2019, Lercher A et al. Immunity 2020). Our interdisciplinary research platform is supported by the Biomedical Sequencing Facility at CeMM (https://www.biomedical-sequencing.org/) headed by Dr. Christoph Bock as well as several other partners from academia, hospitals and the public health sector (https://www.sarscov2-austria.org/). Our SARS-CoV-2 sequencing work directly helps federal authorities to validate epidemiological clusters for the pandemic SARS-CoV-2 virus, inform about viral mutations circulating in the Austrian population and contribute to COVID-19-related scientific projects and publications.
CeMM is a flagship institute for biomedical research in the heart of Europe, Vienna. CeMM is committed to highest scientific standards. The environment is very collaborative, dynamic and international. One of CeMM`s advantages is to be in close proximity to the Vienna Medical University Campus and the General Hospital (AKH). This allows the fruitful interaction of basic scientists with clinicians, and the use of models and cutting-edge technology to disease-relevant biological questions. According to a study by The Scientist, CeMM is ranked as the best European place to work in Academia 2012, internationally CeMM appears at the fourth place. The oﬃcial language at CeMM is English, and more than 48 diﬀerent nationalities are represented at the institute.
