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 Engineer? 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?

You will participate in an EU-funded research project implementing Digital Twins solutions for mobility, transportation and traffic management. This project aims to increase safety, to reduce congestion, and to contribute to decarbonisation of our cities.

You will be mainly in charge of:

  • Participate in the development of the architecture of the Digital Twin System dedicated to mobility/transportation and traffic management, with an emphasis on interoperability aspects, relying on standard APIs during the exchange and sharing of information between different project components (mobility and traffic simulation, data management, 3D Visualization, etc..).
  • Implement a Digital Twins solution applied to different use cases associated to the project pilots.
  • Participate to the experimental validation phase with identification of the success factors of such an experiment.
  • Participate in the tasks of dissemination and exploitation of results (publication of papers and so on)

Working within the framework of the European project, you will have the opportunity to work in a project team and will allow interactions with researchers from LIST and other partners to facilitate his/her work.
