We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc candidate (f/m) with a background in microbiology and a keen interest in public health. S/he will carry out research and coordinate the collaborative efforts of this ambitious multidisciplinary project. The candidate should be experienced in state-of-the-art methodology of metagenomics (including library prep and sequencing) on Illumina and/or ONT platforms. Strong skills in data analysis methods (integration with other data sets, comparative metagenomics) are beneficial.

High intrinsic motivation and the ability to think outside-of-the-box are desired. Excellent communication skills also to colleagues from other fields (e.g., public health, data science, demography) are required. The successful candidate will become part of the international team of wet and dry lab biologists within the Bergthaler Lab (http://www.bergthalerlab.org). The Bergthaler Lab and the Cluster of Excellence provide a highly supportive, diverse and international environment at the Medical University of Vienna in Vienna, a leading academic institution which is located in one of the most liveable cities in the world.
