We are looking for a bioinformatician in the fields of epigenetics, gene regulation & proteomics. This position is embedded in the special research program (SFB) “Histone deacetylases (HDACs) as regulators of T cell-mediated immunity in health and disease”. The ideal candidate has knowledge in the analysis of NGS dataset and pathway analysis. The candidate will be responsible for the computational analysis of NGS data and for basic pathway and network analysis. Throughout the project, the candidate will work in close collaboration with the whole research network.

The special research program (SFB) “Histone deacetylases (HDACs) as regulators of T cell-mediated immunity in health and disease” constitutes a major strategic grant, consortium and research network newly funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). The overall aim of this 8-year SFB research program and consortium is to provide a mechanistic molecular rationale for the development and application of isoform-selective HDAC inhibitors for the treatment of T cell-mediated diseases, and to test essential regulatory roles of reversible lysine acetylation beyond histone modifications and epigenetic gene regulation in T helper cells. It comprises an interdisciplinary team of eight research groups, of which seven are located in Vienna and one in Salzburg, Austria. The project started in March 2019.
APPLICATION: Candidates have to demonstrate a strong motivation to engage in the SFB network. Previous research experience in Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, or another relevant discipline is desired. Electronic applications must include the following documents in a single PDF file:
1.   Academic Curriculum Vitae of no more than 2 -3 pages
2.   List of peer-reviewed publications (submitted papers must include the submission confirmation)
3.   Motivation letter explaining why you wish to start / continue a career in the field (1-page)

The job offer is open until March 31, 2021. The position will be filled as soon as suitable candidates have been identified and selected. Two reference letters must be e-mailed by mentors of applicants to Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!
