CeMM, the Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences is an international, independent and interdisciplinary research institution located at the Campus of the Vienna General Hospital and Medical University of Vienna.
We are a group of 180 scientists from 45 nations situated in a beautiful, bright and perfectly designed building (inaugurated in 2011). We have state-of-the-art technologies and are neighbours and close collaboration partners with one of the largest research hospitals in Europe. Vienna is a fascinating capital city, with world-leading quality of life, and legendary music and culture. CeMM is an equal opportunity employer, and our official working language at CeMM is English.
CeMM has an established internationally-recognised track record in: (i) systems biology/network interactomics; (ii) pathogen interactomics; (iii) chemical proteomics; and (iv) chemical biology/screening as evidenced by many publications in high-ranking international journals such as Nature, Science and Cell. In addition, the experience and knowledge of the Principal Investigators at CeMM is exceptional in posing fundamental biological questions and application of these questions in a medically relevant setting.
The mass spectrometry laboratory space is designed to the highest standards to operate under optimal conditions in an analytical-suitable environment. Each instrument resides in individual cubicles that are maintained at constant temperature and humidity. Minimal downtime is assured via remote surveillance whereby the performance of the systems can be consistently monitored. Instrumentation includes 7 LC/MS systems including two Orbitrap Fusion Lumos instruments and a brandnew Agilent 6470 Triple Quadrupol LC/MS-System used for targeted dMRM experiments.
