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 an intern? Join our Environmental Research and Innovation department

The Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) department, made up of 200 life science, environmental science and information technology researchers and engineers, provides the interdisciplinary knowledge, expertise and technologies to lead solutions including the major environmental challenges facing society, such as climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, and environmental pollution prevention and control.

The department relies on two cutting-edge platforms, the Biotechnologies and Environmental Analytics Platform and the Observatory for the Climate and the Environment, and the GreenTech Innovation Centre (GTIC): a one-stop-shop for the complete development of bio-based products and processes.

You will join ERIN’s Observatory for Climate, Environment and Biodiversity (OCEB) https://www.list.lu/en/institute/rd-infrastructures/observatory-for-climate-environment-and-biodiversity/, a multidisciplinary platform including researchers and engineers who push the state of the art in environmental monitoring and assessment. The OCEB platform produces scientific evidence for supporting the policy-making process towards sustainable and informed management of natural resources in Luxembourg. One of the OCEB’s missions is to spectral profiling from lab to field scale (soil, vegetation, artificial surfaces), airborne small- and large-scale thermal mapping (supporting scientific projects on precision agriculture, vegetation stress, biodiversity and disease detection).



How will you contribute?

The intern will be mainly in charge of:

  • Developing knowledge on large data processing and automation
  • Contributing to ongoing field surveys with UAS and portable spectrometers
  • Contributing to the development of the data processing chain
  • Applying pre- and post-processing techniques to recent airborne data
  • Gaining insight into inter-disciplinary application of remote sensing data for agriculture
  • Getting in touch with the legal framework for UAS missions in the EU

At the end of this 6-months internship, the intern will have acquired knowledge in processing of hyper/ multispectral data.
