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.

The University of Luxembourg has the following vacancy at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) - Neuroimmunology group : Postdoctoral researcher in Neuroimmunology

AREA : Role of immune mechanisms in models of neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimer’s disease.

Your Role...

The Neuroimmunology group at the LCSB, led by Prof. Michael Heneka, is starting its activities at LCSB in early 2022. It focuses on the role of immune mechanisms in neurodegenerative diseases, with a particular focus on Alzheimer’s disease.

This research group has an immediate opening for a motivated, talented and experienced Postdoctoral researcher.

In this particular project, we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who has a strong background in vivo imaging using multi-photon laser microscopy.

We are looking for a candidate, who can work independently but also enjoys to collaborate closely with other members of the lab (neuroscientists, clinician neuroscientists, neurobiologists, etc.

as well as national and international collaborators. A particular focus of the project will be the combined analysis of neuronal network activities and behavioral performance (e.

g. different learning and memory tasks) in murine models of Alzheimer’s disease under modulation of innate immune pathways.

Experience with in vivo imaging techniques and state of the art imaging analysis or biochemical assessment of neuropathology (e.

g, beta-amyloid / tau pathology) would be an asset. For further background please see Venegas et al. 2017, Nature, and Ising et al. 2019, Nature.

What we expect from you

  • Ph.D. in neurobiology, neurophysics, neuroimmunology or a related scientific / technical discipline.
  • Additionally experience in performing multi-photon in vivo imaging and state of the art analysis of acquired imaging information would be preferred
  • Experience in working with murine models of Alzheimer disease (APP, tau transgenics) is warrented.
  • A successful candidate should be willing to take initiative, leadership and responsibility for this demanding project.
  • Further career development by writing own grants will be strongly supported.
  • In Short...
