Default PostDoc in Bioinformatics / Computational Biology (Luxembourg)

PLEASE NOTE: This position is not available anymore.


We seek a highly motivated bioinformatician who is experienced in the analysis of large-scale biomedical omics data, using statistical methods and machine learning, and bioscientific data processing and programming. The candidate will conduct integrative stratification analyses of biomedical data, focusing on molecular, clinical and neuroimaging data for neurodegenerative diseases. This will include the review, set-up and application of software analysis pipelines, and the joint interpretation of disease-related data together with experimental and clinical collaborators. The project will use new biological high-throughput data from patients, healthy controls, as well as in-vitro and in-vivo disease models. With the help of pathway-, network- and machine learning analyses, the goal is to improve the mechanistic understanding of molecular and cellular perturbations in common neurological disorders.
  • Fixed-term contract 2 years (extension possible), 40h/week, competitive salary
  • Start date: as soon as possible


The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Luxembourg. The LCSB is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research. Collaboration between biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians is offering new insights in complex systems like cells, organs, and organisms. These insights are essential for understanding principal mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and for developing new tools in diagnostics and therapy.

Profile requirements:
  • The candidate will have a PhD or equivalent degree in bioinformatics or computational biology
  • Prior experience in large-scale data processing and statistics / machine learning is required
  • A track record of previous publications in bioinformatics analysis of large-scale biological data (e.g. omics, neuroimaging data) should be outlined in the CV
  • Demonstrated skills and knowledge in next-generation sequencing data analysis, biostatistics, machine learning, pathway and network analysis are highly advantageous
  • The candidate should have a cross-disciplinary aptitude, strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and a keen interest in collaborative biomedical research
  • Fluency in oral and written English

We offer:
  • A fully funded position with a very competitive salary.
  • An opportunity to join the Luxembourg Centre of Systems Biomedicine with an international and interdisciplinary ethos.
  • Working in a scientifically stimulating, innovative, dynamic, well- equipped, and international surrounding.
  • Opportunity to work closely with international academic partners.
  • State-of-the-art research facilities and computational equipment

Applications should contain the following documents (ideally combined into one pdf document):
  • A detailed Curriculum vitae
  • A motivation letter, including a brief description of past research experience and future interests, as well as the earliest possible starting date
  • Copies of degree certificates and transcripts
  • Optional: Name and contact details of two or more referees
  • Please mention where you found the advert
