We are recruiting a highly-motivated Research Technician at the “Staber laboratory” of the
Medical University of Vienna, Department of Medicine I, Division of Hematology and

The Project:
Due to the heterogeneity of hematological malignancies, it is very difficult to identify effective
therapies, especially once a cancer has become resistant to standard treatments. To identify
personalized resistance-breaking therapies in hematologic cancers we aim to investigate the
feasibility and clinical impact of next-generation functional drug screening (ngFDS) measured
at single-cell resolution and next generation sequencing (NGS) of patient material. Ex vivo
and clinical drug responses will be rigorously tracked and matched to other biomarkers and
patients’ genomics, to suggest a mechanism of action.  
The successful candidate will work closely with PhD students, research postdocs and
medical doctors at the Division of Hematology (MedUni Vienna) to investigate ways to
overcome drug resistance in hematological malignancies. Techniques include tissue
preparation, molecular and functional characterization of tumors, and database and lab


  • Degree in either biology or chemistry (MTA, CTA, B.Sc., M.Sc., Mag., DI)
  • Strong wet-lab experience with molecular biology technologies
  • Previous experience working with primary patient material and database software is a plus
  • Fluent written and spoken English. Knowledge of the German language is helpful
  • Provide a motivation letter, a detailed curriculum vitae, a letter of recommendation
  • Excellent work ethic, very good communication skills and ability to work in a team in an international environment
