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.
It 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.
The Developmental and Cellular Biology Group (led by Prof. Jens Schwamborn) at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine utilizes stem cells for modelling of neurodegenerative disease.
Projects in the lab are at the interface of systems biology and bio-medical research. In particular, we aim on gaining new insights in the complex processes that regulate neuro-degenerative processes.
Applications are invited for a position as research assistant / technician. Successful applicants should have a strong interest in cell and neuro biology.
Experience in the work with human stem cells, particularly induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), as well as experience in the handling of lab automation equipment would be a strong plus.
Very good command of English language is essential. Interest in general lab organization and management tasks, including the organization of databases and standard operating procedures, is essential.
We are looking for highly motivated people who share our passion for research, are interested in acquiring new skills and wish to be part of an international team.
