The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research university.
The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg is seeking enthusiastic team members for the following positions :
Postdoc (Research Associate) in large-scale computational engineering
The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Luxembourg.
LCSB develops and applies systems-level approaches to gain insight into the molecular and cellular mechanisms of human diseases.
Experimental and computational approaches are combined to analyze the complexity of biological systems underlying disease pathogenesis.
The LCSB is pioneering the way for a predictive, preventive and personalized medicine. Neurodegenerative diseases, especially Parkinson’s disease are major targets within LCSB’s research activities.
LCSB is part of a H2020 grant on creating an HPC / Exascale Center of Excellence in Personalized Medicine PerMedCoE, coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
In this project, we will develop High Performance cell-level simulation software for converting omics data into Personalized Medicine.
Develop HPC-scalable software to perform cell-level simulations
Improve the performance, refactoring and scaling of core applications for pre-exascale architectures
Transfer core analysis functions from existing software and optimize them to run in HPC environments and prepare them for pre-exascale
Extend the functionality of core applications
Apply scientific software development techniques together with the FAIRsoft principles to the core applications following a consolidated, agile, and streamlined process
Write reliable and efficient code
Work closely with other team members aiming for a high level of quality
Design and develop tests using test automation suites
Become a key actor of continuous improvement and innovation within the group
