The University | About us...
The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the University of Luxembourg. We conduct fundamental and
translational research in the field of Systems Biology and Biomedicine – in the lab, in the clinic and in silico. We focus on neurodegenerative processes
and are especially interested in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and their contributing factors.

The LCSB recruits talented scientists from various disciplines: computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists, chemists, engineers, physicists and
clinicians from more than 50 countries currently work at the LCSB. We excel because we are truly interdisciplinary and together we contribute to science
and society.

Successful candidates will join the Computational Biology group, led by Prof. Antonio del Sol, which develops computational models to address challenges
in stem cell research and disease modeling. We employ methodologies from different areas of mathematics, engineering, and physics, and integrate multiple
sources of biological information to study biological processes at different levels of organization. For more information, please visit our website.

Your Role...
The selected candidate shall develop multiscale single cell-based computational models of intra-and intercellular regulation and communication to design
strategies for cell rejuvenation. In particular, the research will be focused on the neural system with the principal aim of designing strategies for the
rejuvenation of the aging brain.

The project will be conducted in close collaboration with Prof. Michael Heneka at the LCSB, who will also conduct the experimental validation of
thecomputational predictions.
