Post-Doc Position - Cell Identity Control @ Leeboratory


We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Leeb group at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories in Vienna. The position is available immediately.

The Leeboratory seeks to elucidate the genetic circuitries that drive cell identity programmes and regulate cell-fate specification. We use embryonic stem cells as main model to elucidate the molecular principles of differentiation.

You will work on a state- of-the-art project in which we will combine our expertise in genetic screening platforms with 3D differentiation regimes. The project will aim at delineating the molecular underpinnings of lineage segregation and specification. Therefore, we will capitalise on extensive experience in stem cell biology and haploid ES cell technology in combination with 3D differentiation models.

We are looking for a creative, highly motivated and technically skilled candidate with excellent verbal and written communication skills. The Leeboratory offers a stimulating environment and access to state of the art technology, including a cell-aggregate sorter.

The successful candidate will hold a recent PhD and will have significant expertise in cell culture, genome-engineering and stem cell biology. Experience with genetic screens is an advantage. The position is competitively funded for an initial period of one year, with the possibility of extension. You will be supported in the acquisition of personal fellowships.

To apply, please send your CV, a one page letter of motivation and contact details of at least two references.
