Are you passionate about research? So are we! Come and join us

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies. 


You ‘d like to contribute as a Researcher? Join our Materials Research and Technology department 

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.


How will you contribute?

The Advanced Instrumentation for Nano-Analytics (AINA) group within the Scientific Instrumentation and Process Technology (SIPT) unit of MRT is renowned for developing innovative nano-analytical techniques for materials characterization and life science applications. During the past few years we have been developing in particular Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) add-on systems for analytical instrument such as the Helium Ion Microscope (HIM), Focussed Ion Beam (FIB) instruments and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), allowing correlative high spatial resolution imaging and high sensitivity chemical information for nano-analytics. 

In this context, we are developing in collaboration with the Visualization and Interaction (VISU) group in the IT for Innovative Services (ITIS department) software and algorithms for the processing, correlating and visualization of large, multi-dimensional datasets coming from high-resolution electron and ion microscopy and mass spectrometry. In this framework, we are looking for a motivated full-stack software engineer who will continue the development of Web-based software prototype towards a commercial product.

The software engineer will work with highly skilled scientists and engineers in computer science, materials science, physics and chemistry in the dynamic environments of the AINA and VISU groups. He/she will be mainly involved in (i) the design and development of a JavaScript-based software including data storage, user management and data visualization, and (ii) the implementation of data processing routines. He/she will acquire highly valued skills in data visualization and data processing of complex datasets. In addition, he/she will contribute to promoting the results in view of commercialization.
