Junior Scientist

HeartBeat.bio is a recently founded drug discovery company focused on developing a high-throughput 3D screening platform for heart failure and cardiomyopathies. Our core technology is based on the worldwide first self-organizing cardiac organoids (Cardioids) which resemble the human physiology of a heart chamber in a way that allows for the cost-efficient and large-scale in vitro analysis of crucial clinical parameters associated with cardiac diseases. The Cardioid platform technology has the potential to revolutionize the current cardiac drug discovery paradigm.

We work in a dynamic and collaborative environment at the Vienna BioCenter (VBC) and are looking for highly motivated candidates that share our excitement for human organoids. Currently, we are seeking a Junior Scientist with a strong interest in transitioning organoid generation and analysis into an automated, defined and quality-controlled process. Candidates should:

  • Have completed a Master’s/PhD degree (or equivalent) in the life science fields

  • Have (stem) cell culture experience

  • Be familiar with microscopy techniques

  • Have an interest in high-throughput screening

  • Experience with automating biological workflows is beneficial

  • Have excellent communication and organizational skills

Enjoy working in a high-performance team

Since we are working in an international scientific environment, excellent English is required. German language skills are a plus but not mandatory.

The annual gross salary is € 32,000 or higher depending on qualification and experience for full-time employment (40h/week).

If you’re interested in joining our exciting new company, please send your CV, letter of motivation and, if possible, the names and contact details of two references to Dr. Tamara Đurović (tamara.durovic@heartbeat.bio) by June 17th 2022.

We look forward to hearing from you.
