PhD Student Positions in Immunology, Inflammation, Infection & Systems Immunity


with up to 4 years fixed-term contract, full-time. Start date for the first PhD students will be in autumn 2016. Further positions can be filled over the next 24 months.

The research-intensive program, by tackling next-generation immunology challenges from wet-lab procedures to big data, aims to respond to the unmet need of training the next generation of competent immunologists in an interdisciplinary environment covering analysis of “omics” and clinical data, as well as basic and translational biomedical knowledge, and their practical application to diagnosis and ultimately therapy. The program includes transferable skills
training, support in career development, scientific lectures by international speakers and annual PhD retreats.
PhD candidates will conduct their research projects either at the Department of Infection and Immunity at LIH (Esch-surAlzette), at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine or at the Life Sciences Research Unit of the University of Luxembourg (Campus Belval, Esch-sur-Alzette). A number of projects involve a collaboration with the Department of Dermatology and Allergy Centre of the University of Southern Denmark (Odense, Denmark). Depending on the project,
PhD candidates will be enrolled at the University of Luxembourg or at the University of Southern Denmark.

The program will allow the candidates to obtain a PhD degree in biology or health sciences with a specialisation in either:
• Fundamental immunology
• Infectious diseases
• Chronic inflammation and autoimmunity
• Molecular and cellular allergology
• Epigenetics applied to immunology
• Systems immunology
• Computational analysis applied to immunology

We are seeking for excellent and highly motivated candidates holding a Master’s degree in a field related to the topics
of the PhD program (MSc or equivalent). Fluency in English is mandatory – English is the working language.
