Oroboros open positions

Open positions

The Oroboros-Team is open for extending our driving force:

Technician / Biomedical scientist

Ensuring the excellent quality of our daily work in the MitoFit laboratory your tasks contain:
  • Respirometry measurements with various biological samples as well as measurements of further mitochondrial parameters (ROS production, mt-membrane potential, ATP production, Ca 2+) by High-Resolution FluoRespirometery
  • The application, evaluation and development of protocols
  • Cell culturing, sample preparation, production of buffers and chemicals
  • The maintenance and development of the O2k-FluoRespirometer
  • Updating User-Manuals
  • Administrative tasks in the laboratory

Project manager

We are involved in several EU-projects and national project applications. To ensure the high quality of our project management, we want to enlarge our experienced project management team.
  • Coordination of proposals and submission process of national and international projects
  • Organization of project meetings
  • Budget planning and financial monitoring
  • Time management of deliverables and reports
  • Coordination of dissemination and outreach activities

MitoFit Database manager

Continuing the transition from Excel-based data collections to a software supported database
  • Establish a link between our software development partners and our R&D team with state-of-the-art applications of the Oroboros O2k technology and commercial software standard
  • Co-organize our Excel-based data collection in cooperation with the R&D team
  • Prepare the logistics of development of a database
  • Collect and analyze data in preparation of a database for Open Access in conjunction with the journal publications, e.g. MitoEAGLE project.
  • Establish an integrated and analytic environment linking mitochondrial respiration with external data (cell physiology, anthropometry, spiroergometry, lifestyle, genomics) in the context of physical fitness evaluation and clinical mitochondrial diagnostics.

Oroboros in brief

Oroboros Instruments is a life science company located in Innsbruck. The company’s focus is on mitochondria and cell research. Oroboros distributes the gold standard technology for high-resolution respirometry - HRR – in 49 countries world-wide and is a scientifically oriented organization with emphasis on continuous innovation.
Instrumental development of the existing O2k technology as well as possible applications are the key of Oroboros Instruments’ leadership on the market. The extension of the Oroboros O2k to the O2k-FluoRespirometer (integrating fluorescence measurements) set a new standard and will be continued by the NextGen-O2k. The NextGen-O2k will combine High-Resolution Respirometry with O2k-Spectrofluorometry (including ratiometric measurements), NADH autofluorescence, O2k-Spectrophotometry (allowing for simultaneous measurement of redox states of the cytochromes aa3, c, and b), and a Q-redox sensor. It will have integrated optical elements beyond the modular options of the presently available Oroboros O2k. Furthermore, by expanding High-Resolution Respirometry from a two-chamber to a multi-chamber device the research instrument will become a future tool as a medical device.
Innsbruck - the city in the Alps: Tyrol and its capital Innsbruck offer the highest standards of quality of life in Austria, combining the unique alpine surroundings with an excellent infrastructure. High living standards include international schools, a very good health care system, political stability and outdoor sport activities on the doorstep, e.g. skiing, hiking, mountain climbing.
