MaBS - The Mathematics and BioSciences Group

Job Opening!

The Biomath group (Reinhard Bürger, Joachim Hermisson, Josef Hofbauer) is looking for a Group Leader (tenure track) in Mathematics and Biosciences.
  • outstanding early-career scientist (2-8 years post PhD)
  • interested in building up an independent research group at the University of Vienna
  • only candidates from outside Vienna are eligible for this call

  • This is the home page of the Mathematics and Biosciences Group at the Faculty of Mathematics and the Max F. Perutz Laboratories of the University of Vienna, funded by two independent grants from the WWTF to Joachim Hermisson and Claus Rueffler.

    Our research interest is the mathematical and computational analysis of evolutionary processes, on the molecular, genetic and ecological level.

    New joint Master's program in Evolutionary Systems Biology

    The University of Vienna and the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna now offer a joint Master's program in 'Evolutionary Systems Biology'.
    The program's students will
  • Learn how to understand and handle modern “- omics” data sets.
  • Develop key computational skills and delve into biological modelling.
  • Combine experimental “wet-lab” technologies with quantitative “dry-lab” methods.
  • Apply these skills to questions arising from evolutionary biology, development, comparative genomics, and systems biology.

  • For more information, please visit the program's web page!

    *** Congrats to Agnes Rettelbach for successfully defending her PhD-thesis! ***

    The MaBS-group wishes you all the best Agnes!
