Technician in molecular biology and protein biochemistry


A full-time technician is sought for a structural biology group at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories in Vienna. We are mainly using X-ray crystallography and various biochemical and biophysical techniques to investigate 3D structures of proteins involved in ciliogenesis and human diseases.

The successful candidate is expected to have basic theoretical knowledge of molecular biology and needs technical skills in gene cloning (PCR, DNA extraction, DNA digestion & ligation, etc.) and protein expression/purification. Your responsibilities will also include the general running of the laboratory.

Candidates should have a laboratory training (CTA, MTA, FH or equivalent), good command of the English language, communication and social skills for effective teamwork, and an interest in learning new techniques.

The position is available immediately. The initial contract is for one year, with possibilities to extend afterwards.
