How will you contribute?

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology is operating a Research and Technology Infrastructure (RTI) called AIDA gathering state-of-the-art tools and software platforms all along the data processing pipeline, from data cleaning to analytics, optimization, and AI, including also advanced visualization capabilities.

LIST is opening a permanent position in order to complete the team in charge of the operation management of the AIDA infrastructure.

The AIDA Lab team is supporting the LIST researchers and engineers to leverage the capabilities of this infrastructure and to get the best out of this state-of-art platform. The AIDA Lab team members have the opportunity to work with a variety of up-to-date technologies (both open source and commercial products). They also interact with colleagues working in a large diversity of application domains like energy, space, health techs, industry, fintechs, mobility, material and environmental sciences, which makes this position quite unique in terms of learning opportunities.

The successful candidate will join a team of experienced and motivated IT professionals and will contribute to further develop the AIDA Lab services for the LIST community and partners.
