IT Support Specialist Proteomics 100%

How does life emerge from molecules and cells? This is the central question that motivates us. With curiosity and passion, we investigate the entire spectrum ranging from the atom to the organism. The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the world's leading life sciences institutes. With 32 groups, high-end core facilities and 500 employees, we are a dynamic and international research community that has spawned many fundamental discoveries in biology and medicine as well as several Nobel Laureates. Become part of our community!

We are looking to recruit a self-motivated IT Support Specialist Proteomics to join our team at the Proteomics Core Facility (PCF). The PCF provides state-of-the art proteomic methodologies to support life science research at the Biozentrum and other Basel University institutes. It is tightly integrated in an internationally leading scientific surrounding and contributes to multiple interdisciplinary projects. The position offers a challenging opportunity at a key intersection of rapidly moving areas of research.
