Postdoc (Research Associate) in (applied) mathematics, machine learning, systems biology (m/f)


Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research institute within the University of Luxembourg. The Systems Control group of the LCSB specialises in modelling the dynamics of biological systems from experimental data, typically by differential equation models. We collaborate with experimental biologists to generate mathematical models, which offer new biological insights that can be tested experimentally.

Your Role

The Systems Control Group seeks a highly skilled Postdoctoral Fellow (Research Associate). The project aims to develop mathematical tools to model continuous-time nonlinear dynamical systems from population snapshot data produced by state-of-the-art single-cell sequencing techniques. It will also include application of these tools to model real biological data to generate new testable hypotheses. The Postdoctoral Fellow is also expected to work together with experimental biologists and to help with grant writing.
