The University | About us...

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 focuses among others 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.

The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) was created within the Health Technologies Initiative from the Government of Luxembourg as one of the research priorities of the University of Luxembourg. The LCSB is an Interdisciplinary Centre of the University independent of the faculties. It combines experimental and computational approaches to analyze complex biological systems and disease processes from a systems biology perspective. The Computational Biology Group (CBG) provides the LCSB with a solid infrastructure in developing theoretical framework for computational modeling on biomedical problems, especially in the area of network biology. The CBG group includes researchers with theoretical, computational and wet lab backgrounds, thereby providing an unique interdisciplinary environment.

Your Role...

The Computational Biology Group seeks a highly skilled and motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on an exciting project that aims at developing a computational framework for modeling inter-cellular interactions to understand the mechanisms of inflammation in aging and disease. In particular, the successful candidate will develop cell-cell interaction models, using network-based computational approaches and single-cell transcriptomics data. Furthermore, the candidate will build data-driven computational models for cell population dynamics and designing intervention strategies. The topics of the research project include the prediction of candidate therapeutic targets for alleviating periodic, noninfectious fever episodes of unknown origin in pediatric patients in collaboration with clinicians in Germany. Finally, the candidate will participate in the project management and planning, including supervision of Ph.D. students.
