The next PhD Program at CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, in Vienna, starts in October 2016. We are looking for exceptionally motivated PhD candidates with a keen interest in genomics, medicine and working in teams.
The 2016 CeMM PhD Program will focus on four thematic areas: Infection, Immunity, Metabolism and Cancer. These areas are built on the pillars of epigenetics, bioinformatics and systems biology, chemical biology and the mechanism of action of drugs, high-throughput genetics, genomics and proteomics, and molecular and cell biology.
CeMM is an international research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Driven by medical needs, CeMM integrates basic research and medical expertise to pursue innovative approaches focused on cancer, inflammation, and immune disorders. CeMM is located at the center of one of the largest medical campuses in Europe, within walking distance of Vienna’s historical city center.
