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.
For a project on the experimental characterization of regulatory genes with a potential involvement in Alzheimer's disease (AD), we are recruiting a skilled and motivated laboratory technician to carry out phenotypic and molecular analyses of candidate AD genes in a zebrafish model of AD.
The genes have been derived from previous single-cell analyses of an AD mouse model and will be targeted to investigate inhibition and activation effects using small molecule compounds and knockdown and over-expression experiments performed in zebrafish embryos.
The project will be implemented as a collaboration between the Biomedical Data Science (BDS) group and the Aquatic Platform at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg.
The technician will be affiliated with the BDS group of Prof. Enrico Glaab and will be co-supervised by Dr. Maria Lorena Cordero Maldonado, the manager of the Aquatic Platform.
The technician will work closely with both groups to characterize candidate Alzheimer genes in an interdisciplinary fashion, using combined phenotypic and molecular studies and computational modeling analyses.
