University Assistant (prae 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 (prae doc)
at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology
Reference number: 10774
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 Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Vienna?
Then come join our team at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology as a PhD Student. 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.
Our future 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 offered position combines several techniques relevant for biomedical molecular research, i.e. biochemistry, molecular biology, calcium imaging, primary cell culture, and studies of behavior in mouse pain models. The goal of our work is to reveal and characterize novel molecules implicated in acute and chronic pain in preclinical mouse models.
You will actively participate in research and assist in teaching. This involves developing and strengthening your independent research profile, involvement in research projects, and international publications and presentations. Your duties will include participation in the teaching of courses as defined by the collective agreement, supervision of students, and involvement in the department administration as well as in teaching and research administration. - We expect the successful candidate to sign a doctoral thesis agreement within 12-18 months.
Candidates having expertise in two or several of the following methods are especially encouraged to apply: biochemistry, molecular biology, calcium-imaging, primary neuronal cell culture, electrophysiology or mouse pain models. In addition, we seek for highly motivated, curiosity driven team players with excellent command of written and spoken English and IT user skills.
