St. Anna Children's Cancer Research Institute (St. Anna CCRI)
We are extending our bioinformatics team and are seeking an enthusiastic bioinformatician who would like to build and advance their career in translational cancer genomics and spearhead the implementation of next generation sequencing and different multi-omics methodologies in routine cancer diagnostics and precision medicine.
As a bioinformatician, you will conduct analyses of genomics data from childhood /adult cancers, hereditary diseases and cancer predisposition syndromes in close collaboration with molecular biologists, geneticists, pediatric oncologists and other bioinformaticians. Examples of recent projects include the development of bioinformatic algorithms based on long-read panel sequencing technology for diagnostic approaches as well as genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic analyses of pediatric leukemia and solid tumors on primary tumors and liquid biopsies, and the analysis of experimental model systems (e.g. Shahin T et al Science Immunology 2021; Halbritter et al Cancer Discovery 2019; Peneder P*, Stütz AM* et al Nature Communications 2021; Popitsch et al Bioinformatics 2021 and Schinnerl et al Haematologica 2019). The research institute CCRI is also involved in several large-scale national and international research collaborations and serves as a national reference center for several clinical trials.
The position is focused on acting as an active member of the bioinformatics core unit and as service provider for the different research groups at the CCRI but also offers opportunities for independent and applied research of novel bioinformatics methodologies related to the CCRI research programs.
