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 research support contributor? Join our IT for Innovation Services department

The IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department, with its 100 researchers and engineers, focuses on the digital transformation of operations in organizations with traditional environments and digital ecosystems, with the aim of improving their performance and innovation capacity. The common thread throughout ITIS is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making processes.

The department relies on the Data Analytics Platform: a hybrid infrastructure covering the entire range of data analytics activities. The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).



How will you contribute?

LIST is looking for a highly motivated candidate with proven skills in the interaction of Blockchain/DLT and trustworthy data sharing technologies (particularly, cybersecurity and privacy techniques). The candidate is expected to enhance the current expertise in the TRUST group of the ITIS department and expand LIST’s collaboration network with public and privacy organizations in Luxembourg and EU.


The specific missions of the candidate will include, but are not limited to, the following activities:

  •  To approach public and private organisations in Luxembourg and EU, and develop research partnerships and maintain the relationships. 
  • To prepare and coordinate research proposals for the national funding agencies (e.g., FNR, Luxinnovation) and EU funding agencies (e.g., Horizon Europe).
  • To contribute to ongoing and future research projects, by leading certain research and development tasks and collaborate with internal/external colleagues when needed.
  • To engage in scientific publications in top-tier conferences and journals for promoting the scientific excellence.
  • To engage in innovations and knowledge disseminations, by applying scientific research results in real-world applications.
  • To acquire new knowledge when necessary and stay in the frontier of technology development, and to align with the strategy evolvement of LIST/ITIS.
