The Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) and the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI) are highly renowned basic biomedical research institutes located at the Vienna BioCenter. Their common goal is to uncover fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie complex biological phenomena.
Our BioOptics Core Facility is seeking a highly motivated, full-time Technician / Flow Cytometry Operator (m/f) as a maternity leave substitution for up to 20 months. The position is available from now on and is limited until July 2020.
The BioOptics Core Facility provides the researchers at the IMP/IMBA/GMI with service in flow cytometry, microscopy and image analysis. It is equipped with state-of-the-art analytical flow cytometers and cell sorters as well as optical microscopes plus imaging software - see http://cores.imp.ac.at/biooptics/ for details.
The core facility currently offers five analyzers, one self-operated FACS and operated services on three sorters to more than 200 researchers. The candidate joining our team would mainly operate the cell sorters and help maintaining the FACS equipment.
The ideal applicant should have some laboratory training, a strong technical interest in instrumentation, computer skills as well as good communication and social skills. Experience in FACS is not required; however, a willingness to handle advanced optical instruments and to learn new techniques is essential. Applicants without work experience are as welcome as more experienced ones.
The institutes, embedded in the Vienna Biocenter (VBC), are offering the opportunity to work in a dynamic international environment with excellent benefits including child support centre, subsidized cafeteria and training courses. The yearly gross salary starts from 31,024.- depending on qualification and experience. The position is open from now on and is limited until July 2020. Applications, including a full CV and motivation letter should only be made online.
