The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.
The University of Luxembourg has the following vacancy within its Life Sciences Research Group at the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC).
Bioinformatician (m/f)
Permanent contract, full time 
Ref. F1-060004
Employee status
The University of Luxembourg is seeking to appoint a scientist with a strong interdisciplinary background in Bioinformatics. The successful candidate will be active within the Life Sciences Research Unit and interact with the Bioinformatics Core Facility of the Luxembourg Center for Systems Biomedicine.
The successful candidate will work together with the teams of LSRU to provide support and expertise in Bioinformatics within the frame of their projects. The candidate should be able to work independently, prioritise and manage a variety of tasks. He/she will contribute to data-mining of preprocessed data (e.g. microarrays, next generation sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics data provided by Centers).
