Sano Postdoc

Scientific Researcher Modelling and Simulation

Give us a chance to meet you

Sano Centre for Computational Medicine is a new International Scientific Foundation located in Kraków, Poland.

Sano aspires to be a major translational scientific institute, operating at the meeting point of academic science, established MedTech industry, and emerging start-up environment, combining the best of these three perspectives.

Sano acts as a core technology and expertise provider for industry, and creator of innovation, developing state-of-the-art solutions for healthcare. Thanks to the substantial funding and excellent European partnership network, Sano will bring a critical mass to this transformational field of research, in order to translate scientific advancements onto clinical practice. Sano’s ambition is to become the Reference Centre for Computational Medicine in Central Europe and build a reputation as a leading institute on a global level.

As a cross-disciplinary institution, Sano uses machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI), large scale computer simulations (HPC), data science, and other computational technologies towards overcoming global challenges in healthcare systems. The research agenda will be executed in close collaboration with Partners in Poland, EU and USA.

We value:

  • Passion – Passion in what we do, engagement in Sano operations, taking responsibility, providing initiative, being happy at work.
  • Innovation – Boldness in articulating and pursuing novel ideas, courage to think outside the box.
  • Integrity – Directness, openness, tolerance and respect. Scientific integrity (we do not cut corners).
  • Diversity – Diversity in backgrounds, cultures and opinions of Sano employees. Promotion of women in STEM.

You will contribute to developing scientific vision of excellence and help with turning scientific vision into tangible solutions for clinicians and patients.
Output of your high-quality research will be published in leading journals and will propel development of new healthcare solutions, methods and paradigms. You will either engage in fundamental theoretical research with a clear applied facet — or you may prefer to draw from theory in developing methods.
You will join the Team dedicated to the discovery of mechanisms, methods and paradigms for the development of computational methods pertaining to making biophysical complexity tractable.

As a member of the Team of excellence at a rapidly developing Institute, you will have important impact on how the Team and indeed, how the Institute will evolve, and how they will go about meeting their strategic objectives in the long run.
If you i) enjoy creating science; ii) enjoy helping organisations and people grow; and iii) enjoy contributing to scientific workplace culture (while accepting that some elements are in flux, and adaptation to an evolving environment is important), then you are the kind of person we would like to talk to. We expect a full-time, dedicated commitment to ensure continuity within the team.
Scientific discipline: Network Science in: Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computational Medicine, Data Science, Machine Learning, Complexity

We are looking for passionate, motivated scientists preferably with a few years of postdoctoral experience in MultiOmics, i.e. the field of Integrative Omics. We invite you to join us as Research Scientists/Postdoctoral Fellows and to become key contributors to our Team. Brilliant PhD graduates (recent and pending) are also invited to apply.
We are a rapidly expanding Team within a new not-for-profit research Institute, dedicated to the advancement of computational physiology and medicine. We aim at developing fundamental and applied approaches and solutions for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases.
If you i) are a person who is interested in cutting-edge research in computational medicine; ii) are passionate about the use of computing paradigms in medicine; iii) want to actively and profoundly influence the future of healthcare through engagement in exciting and impactful projects; please contact us and talk to us in order to find out more about this opportunity.

You are expected to:
➡ conduct original, frontier scientific research, independently and under the supervision of the Team Leader;
➡ publish your work in peer-review scientific journals and present the results of your work during national and international workshops and conferences;
➡ contribute to building the scientific image of excellence of the Team;
➡ co-mentor junior scientists – PhD students and MSc students;
➡ actively contribute to fund raising efforts of the Team.

  • recent or pending PhD in relevant field of science (computer science/biomedical engineering or related fields);
  • at least one first-author research publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, top conference or currently in press ideally in the field of data science;
  • ability to think critically, work independently, and solve complex problems;
  • interest in pursuing applied medical research in a multi-disciplinary environment;
  • excellent written and oral English communication skills as the main language in Sano is English. 

Our successful candidate should have:

  • PhD degree (or equivalent) pertaining to Integrative Omics in science or engineering (physics/mathematics/chemistry/computer science/biomedical engineering or related fields);
  • at least three first-author research publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals;
  • excellent knowledge of computational methods;
  • ability to think creatively and critically, work independently, and solve complex problems;
  • interest in pursuing theoretical and/or applied computational research in the fields of computational physiology and medicine in a multi-disciplinary environment;
  • excellent written and oral English communication skills as the main language in Sano is English.

If you feel that this job opportunity is the career that you are looking for, please apply immediately and give Sano a chance to meet you. Please, be informed that Sano will contact only with Candidates fulfilling the formal criteria.

Sano is an equal-opportunity employer. We prioritize diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We value a spirit of enquiry and perseverance, provide the space to keep asking questions, and promote a culture of curiosity and creativity.
