The St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute (CCRI), located in the center of Vienna, the world’s most livable city and one of Europe’s most important places for biomedical research and life sciences, is an international and multidisciplinary competence center striving to improve treatment of children and adolescents with cancer by connecting translational and clinical research with open-minded exploration of basic disease mechanisms. Through close cooperation between clinic and research, the CCRI provides an ideal environment for cutting-edge research and its translation into clinical practice. To achieve our ultimate goal of advancing the well-being of patients, the CCRI constantly pushes scientific boundaries and strongly promotes close collaboration and exchange with external institutions like the Medical University of Vienna, CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA), and the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP).
The CCRI is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and are committed to providing a work environment of mutual respect to everyone without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender identity or expression, disability, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws, regulations and ordinances.
We are looking for a PhD student (m/f/d) to join the Hutter group. This position offers a unique opportunity to participate in research in a multidisciplinary center for pediatric oncology and have a direct impact on the development of new cancer therapies.
Our group* strives to improve the outcome of patients with histiocytoses, a group of diseases located at the interface between cancer and immunology. We are combining cutting edge technologies (single-cell RNA-sequencing, genotyping of single cell transcriptomes, iPSCs) with in-vitro drug-testing assays and the analyses of clinical data of patients in order to understand how LCH develops and responds to therapy.
Please send your application via email to Caroline Hutter, email@example.com. Applications should contain your Curriculum Vitae, a cover letter, list of publications (please mark / explain your three top contributions), and the contact details of three references.
