Exact knowledge of tumor etiology is required to design models for preclinical testing and personalization of cancer therapies. However, tissue and developmental stage of origin remain an enigma for many childhood cancers, severely hampering progress in pediatric cancer research and treatment.
Funded by an international organization, St. Anna Children´s Cancer Research Institute (CCRI), has joined forces with the Medical University of Vienna (MUW) and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) to track the origins of pediatric bone sarcomas using developmental and trans-species genomics. The interdisciplinary consortium is located in Vienna, the world’s most livable city and one of Europe’s most important places for biomedical research and life sciences.
We are looking for computational biologists at post-doctoral level who want to contribute to solving one of the most mysterious puzzles in pediatric oncology by employing their skills in single-cell analysis at the interface of developmental and cancer biology.

Who we are
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).
You will join the Developmental Cancer Genomics Group at CCRI. The focus of the group is on understanding developmental processes in cancer biology by employing an integrative approach that combines developmental biology with functional genomics, data analytics, and mathematics.
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, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, gender identity or expression, disability, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws, regulations and ordinances.
