A strong candidate would have a wet-lab (e.g., functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) or a computational background (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. We are fully equipped and experienced with wet-lab and computational work, thus allowing candidates to get the best of both worlds and establish a unique skill set that will allow them to effectively combine wet-lab and bioinformatics in their future group.The Lab (http://epigenomics.cemm.oeaw.ac.at/)The Medical Epigenomics Lab at CeMM pursues an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative research program aimed at understanding the cancer epigenome and establishing its utility for precision medicine. The lab is internationally well-connected and active in several fields:• Epigenomics. Many diseases show widespread deregulation of epigenetic cell states. As members of the International Human Epigenome Consortium, we use epigenome sequencing to dissect the epigenetic basis of cancer and immune disorders.• Technology. Groundbreaking biomedical research is often driven by new technologies. Our lab is therefore heavily invested into technology development, including single-cell sequencing, CRISPR screens, and epigenome editing.• Bioinformatics. New algorithms and advanced computational methods allow us to infer epigenetic cell states from large datasets, in order to reconstruct the epigenetic landscape of cellular differentiation and complex diseases.• Diagnostics. New technologies (genome sequencing, mobile devices, etc.) provide important information for personalized medicine. We develop and validate assays and algorithms for translating the value of digital medicine into routine clinical practice.The Principal Investigator (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=9qSsTcIAAAAJ) Christoph Bock is a principal investigator at CeMM. His research focuses on epigenetics, bioinformatics, and high-throughput technology (single-cell sequencing, CRISPR) in the context of personalized medicine. He is also a guest professor at the Medical University of Vienna, scientific coordinator of the Biomedical Sequencing Facility at CeMM, and adjunct group leader for bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. He has been a principal investigator of the BLUEPRINT project (in the International Human Epigenome Consortium), and he co-founded Genom Austria, a citizen science project that is the Austrian partner in the International Network of Personal Genome Projects. He is a member of the Young Academy of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (since 2017) and recipient of several major research awards, including the Max Planck Society’s Otto Hahn Medal (2009), a New Frontier Group grant by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (2015-2020), an ERC Starting Grant (2016-2021), and the Overton Prize of the International Society of Computational Biology (2017).The Institute (http://www.cemm.at/) CeMM is an international research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and a founding member of EU-LIFE. It has an outstanding track record of top-notch science (last five years: >10 papers in Nature/Cell/Science/NEJM, >25 papers in Nature/Cell sister journals) and medical translation. With just over a hundred researchers, CeMM provides a truly collaborative and personal environment, while maintaining critical mass and all relevant technologies. Research at CeMM focuses on cancer, inflammation, and immune disorders. CeMM is located at the center of one of the largest medical campuses in Europe, within walking distance of Vienna’s historical city center. A study by “The Scientist” placed CeMM among the top-5 best places to work in academia world-wide (http://the-scientist.com/2012/08/01/best-places-to-work-academia-2012). Vienna is frequently ranked the world’s best city to live. It is a United Nations city with a large English-speaking community. The official language at CeMM is English, and more than 40 different nationalities are represented at the institute. CeMM promotes equal opportunity and harbors a mix of different talents, backgrounds, competences, and interests. Postdocs at CeMM are paid according to the Austrian Science Fund’s salary scheme, which amounts to an annual gross salary slightly above EUR 50,000.Please apply online (https://cemm.jobbase.io/job/k7591svd) with cover letter, CV, academic transcripts, and contact details of three referees. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Any application received by 17 June 2018 will be considered.

D .E. Shaw Research|
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computational Chemistry and Biology at D. E. Shaw Research|
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking postdoctoral fellows of exceptional ability to join our New York–based team. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment. Candidates should have expertise in computational biophysics or chemistry, structural biology, drug discovery, or in a relevant area of computer science. Relevant areas of experience might include direct application of molecular dynamics or other computational methods to drug discovery, investigation of allosteric interactions or other functionally important conformational changes in biological molecules, structure prediction or design for proteins or RNA, study of protein–protein or protein–nucleic acid interactions, or study of fundamental biophysical problems, such as protein and RNA folding. Specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical, however, than outstanding intellectual ability, unusually strong research skills, and a history of innovation and accomplishment. We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability.To submit an application, please use the link provided below: http://www.deshawresearch.com/recruit/jobs/Ads/FindAPostDoc/ChemPF-AD. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group that is pursuing an ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery. We have developed a special-purpose supercomputer capable of executing molecular dynamics (MD) simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible. Our current projects include investigations of proteins and other biomedically relevant macromolecules as well as the development of computational chemistry methods to enable more accurate and effective MD simulations.D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal of building a diverse workforce. We welcome inquiries from all exceptionally well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, gender, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, pregnancy, marital status, military service eligibility, veteran status, or status in any other category protected by law.
