Position: Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Biology/Statistical Bioinformatics
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: The successful postdoctoral candidate will develop computational and statistical models using multi-omics data (including transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics, and immunomics data) generated from patients to identify novel diagnostic patterns/biomarkers that match clinical findings. The modeling methodologies include, but not limited to, statistical modeling and machine learning, network biology, bioinformatics and information theory, The project is funded by ERA PerMed and includes a consortium of international collaborators, including medical practitioners with existing record of achievements in treatment of SIRS. In addition, the successful candidate will curate the group’s contribution to the consortium and provide it with statistical and computational support, which requires ability to work with various professional backgrounds (biologists, doctors and others). The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) was created within the Health Technologies Initiative from the Government of Luxembourg as one of the research priorities of the University of Luxembourg. The LCSB is an Interdisciplinary Centre of the University independent of the faculties. It combines experimental and computational approaches to analyze complex biological systems and disease processes from a systems biology perspective. The Computational Biology Group (CBG) provides the LCSB with a solid infrastructure in developing theoretical methods for computational modeling of biomedical problems. The CBG includes researchers with theoretical, computational and wet lab backgrounds, thereby providing a unique interdisciplinary environment. The CBG seeks a highly skilled and motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on an exciting project that aims at developing a computational pipeline for classification and analysis of patients with the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). SIRS is a life-threatening condition characterized by a mortality of 7-25% depending on timely recognition of the underlying disease and triggers. The heterogeneity of SIRS symptoms, however, challenges initial therapeutic decisions
Requirements: Essential skills and qualities: Ph.D. degree in computer science, engineering, physics, biology or related discipline; Strong computational skills; A strong publication record in related fields; Excellent communication skills and working knowledge of English; Ideal skills: Prior experience in computational systems biology and/or statistical learning; Experience in working in multi-disciplinary research settings; We offer: Opportunity to do highly interdisciplinary research and solve complex biomedical problems within a highly dynamic research institution (LCSB) and in collaboration with internationally recognized partners; An international and multi-lingual environment; A very competitive salary and a range of social benefits
   
Text: UOL03922 31-Dec-2099 About the University The University of Luxembourg aspires to be one of Europe’s most highly regarded universities with a distinctly international and interdisciplinary character . It fosters the cross-fertilisation of research and teaching , is relevant to its country, is known worldwide for its research and teaching in targeted areas, and is establishing itself as an innovative model for contemporary European Higher Education. The University`s core asset is its well-connected world-class academic staff which will attract the most motivated, talented and creative students and young researchers who will learn to enjoy taking up challenges and develop into visionary thinkers able to shape society. Within the University, the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is a highly interdisciplinary research centre (IC), integrating experimental biology and computational biology approaches in order to develop the foundation of a future predictive, preventive and personalized medicine. Your Role The successful postdoctoral candidate will develop computational and statistical models using multi-omics data (including transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics, and immunomics data) generated from patients to identify novel diagnostic patterns/biomarkers that match clinical findings.
