Ref2008: Scientific Programmer (part time)

The IMP/IMBA/GMI Protein Chemistry Facility is looking for a scientific programmer with experience in object-oriented programming. Mass spectrometry (MS) has emerged as a core analytical technique in modern life science research. As MS generates huge amounts of data, sophisticated software is required for data analysis. We are offering a position for a highly motivated software engineer with curiosity to work in biological research at the interface between informatics and proteomics.

Experience in object-oriented programming (preferentially C#), as well as the motivation to acquire expertise in the field of proteomics and a keen interest to analyze biological data sets are essential prerequisites. The candidate should have good communication skills in English and the ability to work on projects independently. Candidates experienced in web development, scripting languages or databases will be preferred.

In the Protein Chemistry Facility, we are interested in developing new methods to detect and quantify proteins as well as their modifications and interaction partners. Our mission is to use these optimized methods to answer fundamental biological questions in a collaborative setting. Therefore, we are well equipped with recent computational infrastructure and latest high-resolution mass spectrometry instruments.

GMI, IMP and IMBA are part of the Vienna BioCenter, one of Europe’s most dynamic life science hubs with 1,800 employees from 70 countries in four research institutes, three universities and two dozen biotech companies. Child care is available on campus. 

The monthly gross salary is €800 or higher, depending on qualification and experience-part-time (10 hrs/week).
