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 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?

We are looking for a motivated candidate to work on projects related to cooperative, connected and autonomous mobility (CCAM) to optimize the integration of new transport modes and anticipate mobility demand. Luxembourg, as well as the rest of Europe and the world, is indeed facing increasing mobility challenges that lead to negative ecological, environmental and societal indicators. One of the solutions to improve this is the use of communication and automation technologies to enable operators and end-users to better manage their vehicles and offer alternative transport solutions instead of cars. To achieve this modal shift and move towards seemless and door-to-door mobility solutions, a number of issues need to be addressed.


 In this context, you will be responsible for:

  • Proposing and validating optimisation algorithms in the context of Multimodal transport systems. .
  • Proposing and validating simulation models to realistically reproduce mobility patterns in several areas.
  • Proposing and validating approaches to estimate and predict user demand in these areas as well as potentially available transport modes, based on existing databases or others collected from sensors deployed in the field.


Finally, you will be in charge of disseminating and promoting the research activities that will be carried out, whether through publications, patents, prototype development or technical reports.
