Ref2105: Structural Biology & Genomics Postdoc (Plaschka & Stark Labs)

Postdoc bridging Structural Biology and Regulatory Genomics

The Plaschka and Stark groups at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) jointly offer exciting research opportunities for individuals with a PhD degree in biochemistry, structural biology or genomics, and a strong interest in gene regulation. If you are passionate and excited to advance your scientific career in an outstanding research environment, you’re the one!

We are two internationally leading groups in structural biology and in regulatory genomics, respectively, studying gene transcription and mRNA maturation. With this joint position in the context of the VIP2 International Postdoc Program, we combine our complementary strengths to develop projects that bridge biochemistry and genomics to tackle key open questions in gene regulation.

We provide an unparalleled training opportunity with world-class support at the group-, institute-, and campus-level. Available resources include on-site mass spectrometry, Cryo-EM (Titan Krios & Glacios), NGS, a fully administered compute-cluster, and more.

The IMP is a world-class research institute that provides outstanding support and excellent social benefits in Vienna, Austria – the number one city in the Mercer ‘quality of living’ ranking. VIP2 is an EU-funded three-year postdoctoral fellowship program that fosters scientific excellence and independence.

Applications with a cover letter, CV, and the names of your referees should be sent to manuela.steurer[at] by April 1st 2021. Interviews will follow shortly after this date.
