The University About
The University of Luxembourg is an international research university with a distinctly multilingual and interdisciplinary character.
The University was founded in 2003 and counts more than 6,700 students and more than 2,000 employees from around the world.
The University’s faculties and interdisciplinary centres ;focus on research in the areas of Computer Science and ICT Security, Materials Science, European and International Law, Finance and Financial Innovation, Education, Contemporary and Digital History.
In addition, the University focuses on cross-disciplinary research in the areas of Data Modelling and Simulation as well as Health and System Biomedicine.
Times Higher Education ranks the University of Luxembourg #3 worldwide for its international outlook, #20 in the Young University Ranking 2021 and among the top 250 universities worldwide.
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.
At the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) the Enzymology & Metabolism Research Group headed by Assist. Prof.
and 2) on generating disease models for selected inborn errors of metabolism to study underlying disease mechanisms and / or investigate treatment options.
The group develops advanced phenotyping techniques, including metabolomics, to address related research questions and uses budding yeast, zebrafish, and mammalian cell culture, including iPSC-derived cells, as main model systems.
We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated researcher to work on projects that focus on rare inherited metabolic diseases causing debilitating and progressive neurological symptoms.
The projects include deep characterization of zebrafish disease models to study the mechanism underlying the disease and to evaluate innovative strategies to improve diagnosis and early implementation of potential therapies.
More specifically the tasks include :
What we expect from you
Previous experience with aquaculture techniques and / or with zebrafish will be considered as an advantage
