Open positions

  • Postdoc Position in Single-Cell Microbial Ecology

    A PhD position is available for an immediate start as part of the project ‘Exploring spatial patterns of microbial activity and interactions using Raman microspectroscopy’ within the group of David Berry

    We are looking for a highly motivated and independent scientist interested in microbial ecology and development of novel methods. Applicants should have a strong background in environmental microbiology, Raman microspectroscopy, or microfluidics.

  • PHD POSITION AVAILABLE IN GUT MICROBIOLOGY AND NEURODEVELOPMENT

    A PhD position is available for an immediate start as part of the project ‘The premature gut microbiome and the influence on neonatal immunity, brain development and white matter injury - The PreMiBraIn study’ within the group of David Berry. The position is funded by an inter-university research cluster grant (Medical University of Vienna / University of Vienna). 

    We are looking for a highly motivated and independent scientist with a keen interest in gut microbiota and health and a strong background in microbiology and/or medicine.

  • Postdoc and PhD Positions available in Soil Microbial Ecology

    One postdoc and one PhD position are available in a project that investigates the dynamics and genetic mechanisms of dormancy and resuscitation in terrestrial ecosystems. The positions are part of the ERC Starting grant project DormantMicrobes in Dagmar Woebken's group. 

    We are looking for highly motivated and independently working candidates with a background in bioinformatics and microbiology. Experience in generating and interpreting "meta-omics" data, stable isotope probing (SIP) and microbial physiology is of advantage. 

  • Postdoc position available in marine microbial symbioses

    A Postdoc position is available for an immediate start within the project ‘Elucidating symbiotic interactions in the ecologically important marine sponge Ianthella basta’ - a collaborative project of Nicole Webster from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and Michael Wagner. The position is funded by the ERC Advanced Grant NITRICARE. 

    We are looking for a highly motivated and independent postdoctoral fellow willing to work jointly between the University of Vienna and AIMS. Applicants should have a keen interest in fundamental microbial symbiosis and a strong research background in microbial physiology and environmental microbiology.
