University Assistant (post doc) at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology
The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.09.2020 of a
University Assistant (post doc)
at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology
Reference number: 10768
Do you have a strong interest in systems biology and disease-related research in the context of chronic pain?
Do you want to benefit from working in an interdisciplinary, dynamic, and highly motivated research group embedded in the excellent and international environment of the University of Vienna?
Then come join our new team at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology as a Postdoctoral fellow.
Our translational research focuses on the molecular underpinnings of painful pathologies in vertebrates. In particular, we have setup an integrated workflow for the discovery of system-wide proteome dynamics involved in chronic pain; please see our current lab webpage http://www.em.mpg.de/index.php (research Dr. Manuela Schmidt) for more information.
The goal of our work is to reveal protein and protein network signatures of chronic pain in preclinical mouse models and also in humans (as part of on-going clinical collaborations).
Our research group is embedded in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Vienna. Thus, we benefit from close interactions with experts in chemical medicine, bioinformatics, drug screening, and systems biology. This interdisciplinary and dynamic environment provides ideal opportunities for collaborative research, learning, and, generally, scientific as well as personal development.
The position is limited with 6 years, starting date is September 1, 2020.
The offered position combines several techniques relevant for biomedical molecular research, i.e. biochemistry, quantitative mass spectrometry-based proteomics, bioinformatics-based systems biology, and studies of behavior in mouse pain models. The goal of our work is to reveal protein and protein network signatures of chronic pain in preclinical mouse models and also in humans (as part of on-going clinical collaborations). These signatures might represent novel targets for the development of more efficient therapies of chronic pain.
Active participation in research, teaching and administration. This involves - Developing and strengthening the independent research profile - Involvement in research projects / research studies - International publications and presentations - Responsibility for project applications and the acquisition of third-party funding - Independent teaching of courses as defined by the collective agreement - Supervision of students - Participation in evaluation measures and quality assurance - Involvement in the department administration as well as in teaching and research administration.
Doctoral degree/PhD degree - Candidates combining expertise in biochemistry (with focus on ion channel multi-complexes), quantitative proteomics (mass spectrometry sample preparation, bioinformatic analysis of mass spectrometry data using the R-environment as well as Perseus), molecular biology, in vivo virus-mediated gene transfer, and mouse pain models (inflammatory pain, neuropathic pain) are especially encouraged to apply.
Excellent command of written and spoken English - IT user skills - Ability to work in a team.
In addition, candidates should have a good publication record and demonstrated experience in scientific publishing. W expect the successful candidate to have teaching experience and experience of working on research Projects.
- Letter of motivation - Academic curriculum vitae (including a list of publications, a list of courses and a list of talks given) - Description of research interests and research
