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 “Systems Ecology” group at the LCSB led by Professor Paul Wilmes develops and applies molecular systems biology approaches to acquire new knowledge of mixed microbial communities (e.g. gut microbiota), their interactions with their environment (e.g. the human host), and how certain microbial community compositions lead to certain outcomes (e.g. pathogenesis). The group has developed a number of proprietary wet- and dry-lab analytical and experimental methods that enable the systematic study of microbial community-driven processes. The overall objective is to use high-resolution molecular data from microbial consortia to construct multi-scale models which predict and allow control of key processes governing microbial community structure and function in situ . The main responsibility of the research Scientist will be to ensure and conduct high-quality research and increase the research capacity in the group sustainably.
