The University of Luxembourg offers the opportunity to apply for a Doctoral research grant in Luxembourg. The grant is directly tied to the candidate. The candidate has to apply for the grant personally. In case of an accepted application, the position will be financed by the Luxemburgish AFR (Aide Formation Recherche) fellowship. The objective of the project is to use a modeling approach based on accumulation of quantitative data to gain further insights on the mechanistic of pro-inflammatory processes occurring in major chronic diseases. More precisely, the study will focus on the characterization of S100A8/A9-dependent intracellular signaling pathways underlying NADPH oxidase activation. A computational approach will be used to rationalize data from the Life Science Research Unit into a mathematical model that can predict new functional schemes.
-Ideally, the candidate has a Master in physiology, biochemistry, molecular cell/biology or related with a background in mathematics or physics discipline (including computational modeling) -Knowledge in data integration and experience in work lab will be appreciated -Good oral and written English skills
