*** The account for Evolutionary Genomics, IST Austria (Institute of Science and Technology Austria) has expired, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Evolutionary Genomics laboratory (Kondrashov Group - http://ist.ac.at/research/research-groups/kondrashov-group/) is looking for motivated postdocs or technicians with extensive experience in the laboratory to spearhead empirical assays of complex fitness landscapes. We are looking for candidates with extensive experience in molecular and synthetic biology techniques, such as genome modification and complex DNA design. Experience with competition or growth assays of yeast or bacteria and programing experience is welcome, but not strictly necessary. Our laboratory strives to create an open and interdisciplinary intellectual environment, encouraging all members to contribute to project design and eventually pursue independent research interests. For the purposes of this call we are looking for someone to contribute to a series of specific projects, however, parallel design and implementation of independent work will be encouraged.

Candidates are requested to send their CV and a short (1/2 page) statement of purpose, including a statement if the application is for postdoc or technician, to Alex Mally (alexandra.mally@ist.ac.at). The positions will be open until filled and pre-selected candidates will be expected to pass a Skype or on-site interview. Successful candidates will be offered a standard contract in the IST salary scale for a minimum of 2 years and extendable to maximum of 5. Candidates are also encouraged to apply to the independent IST Plus fellowship by March 15 (http://ist.ac.at/research/postdoctoral-research/istplus/).

The Kondrashov Group is based in the Institute of Science and Technology, Austria, a commutable distance from Vienna. It boasts an incredibly interdisciplinary environment, with physics, mathematics and biology on the same tightly knit campus. Vienna is consistently classified as providing one of the highest standards of living in the world, with IST providing additional support, such as an on-campus daycare.
