The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University. Luxembourg is a dynamic, multicultural country in the heart of Europe with a strong research and development base supported by important organisational resources.

The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg, offers state-of-the-art facilities and an excellent training environment for early-

stage researchers, in particular in the biomedical sciences.

The Environmental Cheminformatics and Enzymology & Metabolism Research Groups at LCSB are looking to hire a PhD Candidate as part of a recent ATTRACT Fellowship granted by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR).

The topic, Analytical Approaches for Identifying Unknowns in Simple Biological Systems involves performing cultivation experiments under varying labelling scenarios with two model organisms (S.

cerevisiae and E. coli) and corresponding analytical method development to enable a comprehensive characterization of metabolites formed by both systems but with currently unknown chemical structure.

Identification efforts will be performed in cooperation with a second PhD student in the project. The thesis will be co-

supervised by Drs. Emma Schymanski and Carole Linster.
