The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is offering a full time 24 months research position in cell biology.
She / he will join the Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) Department at LIST. ERIN counts more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science.
The applicant will be incorporated in the Environmental Health Group. The Environmental Health Group develops complex 3D -
in vitro models for toxicological testing as a major research activity. Such models undergo in house validation under laboratory conditions and are applied to a wide range of contaminants from chemicals to nanomaterials.
These models are then applied within nationally and internationally funded research projects and in collaborative research projects with industry.
The applicant will work in the framework of projects aiming at further development, pre-validation and application of new in vitro models for lung toxicity, for which currently there is a lack of models in the field of alternative methods.
The projects are designed to help bridge the technical and funding gap between research-driven discoveries and their commercialisation / utilisation, thereby enhancing the impact of Luxembourg’s research on economy and society.
The applicant’s main tasks will be related to recently funded projects in which a set of assays will be applied and further developed along the TRL scale with the final aim to commercialise these assays.
Her / his main mission is to actively contribute to research, development and innovation and to participate to the definition and contribution to newly developed RDI projects.
She / he will mainly be asked to :
The applicant is also expected to intervene on the following tasks :
time PCR etc. to perform independently experiments, develop new approaches and report them in a suitable manner
