We are looking for a bioinformatician with experience in object oriented
Mass spectrometry (MS) has emerged as a core analytical technique in protein chemistry. Driven by the
rapid development of instrumentation, analysis methods and computational tools, MS based proteomics
is at the forefront of techniques in modern life science research.
As MS generates huge amounts of data, sophisticated software is required for data analysis. We are offering
a position for a highly motivated bioinformatician with experience in software development and
curiosity to work in biological research at the interface between informatics and proteomics.
Good programming skills in object oriented and scripting languages (preferentially C# and R), as well as
the motivation to acquire expertise in the field of proteomics and a keen interest to analyze biological
data sets are essential prerequisites. Candidates experienced with databases or in the fields of parallel
computing or data science will be preferred.
In the Protein Chemistry Facility, we are interested in developing new methods to detect and quantify
proteins as well as their modifications and interaction partners. Our mission is to use these optimized
methods to answer fundamental biological questions in a collaborative setting. Therefore, we are well
equipped with recent computational infrastructure and latest high-resolution mass spectrometry instruments.
The Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) and the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the
Austrian Academy of Science (IMBA) are highly renowned basic biomedical research institutes located at
the Vienna Biocenter. Our common goal is to uncover fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms
that underlie complex biological phenomena.
