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 analyse the complexity of biological systems underlying disease pathogenesis.
The LCSB is pioneering the way for a predictive, preventive and personalised medicine. Neurodegenerative diseases, especially Parkinson’s disease (PD) are major targets within LCSB’s research activities.
We seek a highly skilled doctoral student to work on an international and interdisciplinary biomedical research project on the identification of genetic risk factors for PD (PD) within the recently founded National Center for Excellence in Research on PD (NCER-
PD, ) and the doctoral training unit PARK-QC - Molecular, Organellar and Cellular Quality Control in Parkinson's disease ().
The project will include genetic and bioinformatics analysis of genotype -and next-generation sequencing data, genetic analysis, and the application of systems biology approaches in the context of the newly established LuxPARK PD cohort.
You will analyze genetic data from a large datasets of PD patients and controls and integrate by integration with available omics databases and by pathway analysis to establish new PD genetic risk factors.
Numerous training opportunities in (molecular) biology, systems biology, and bioinformatics
