I-2213 - LEAD RESEARCHER IN VISUALIZATION AND VISUAL ANALYTICS

Description

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? 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).

Our world is becoming increasingly digital. Vast amounts of data about how individuals and groups behave, how machines and equipment work, and how the environment evolves are collected every day. The Data Science & Analytics Unit (DSA) supports this digital transformation of our society and our economy by focusing on the interplay between people, data, computers and the physical world.

The Visualization (VISU) Group of DSA focuses on leveraging the impressive human visual capabilities to gain insight into large complex data, to understand models and to take informed decisions. The team adopts the visual analytics paradigm in which a mix of visualization techniques are combined with various advanced analytics methods in user-friendly applications.


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The VISU group has developed strong expertise in visual analytics for graph/network data, high dimension and mixed data as well as text data for applications like industry 4.0, automotive, health or life sciences. We’d like to further develop our portfolio of activities in these sectors and to grow in complementary application fields in particular finance, smart cities/regions, and edutechs. Our ambition is to imagine generic methodologies, approaches and techniques that can be transferable across application domains.


In the context of the upcoming regulation on Trustworthy AI, we also foresee visualization as a powerful mean to provide explanations of AI models and outcomes. Therefore, the VISU group is developing synergies with the AI-centered groups of the DSA Unit. For instance, the question of biases is present both in AI and in visualization and it should be jointly considered in the Trustworthy AI paradigm.

Visualization is also closely related to Human-Computer Interaction. When it is required, the VISU group is therefore joining its forces with HCI experts of other groups from the DSA unit who are specialized in User experience (UX), Human Factors and Augmented/Mixed Reality (AR/MR).


You should be a recognized researcher in your field with a documented footprint in the scientific community. Your main mission will be to promote RD&I activities and recognition within the Visualization group and the DSA unit by acquiring funding, managing large RD&I projects and maintaining / further developing your profile in the relevant scientific and technological communities. 


You will lead the definition, and manage as PI, national and international RD&I projects of high complexity as well as multiannual and/or multidisciplinary RD&I projects. 


You will additionally lead and promote the dissemination, valorisation and transfer of RD&I results (patents, licenses, prototypes, publications, technical reports, participation in conferences) and publish scientific results in high-quality peer-reviewed journals or conferences. Such efforts should be performed in strong collaboration with other members of the VISU group, the DSA unit and the department and will contribute to the development of Research & Technology activities in LIST. Moreover, you will actively contribute to the development of scientific and technological cooperation networks at the national and international level.


You should have an outstanding academic background and a very strong record of accomplishments as far as publications and project management are concerned.

Glass has been in use for more than 5000 years and is everywhere around us. It has an amazing span of functionalities, from visual aesthetics to electronic applications. Electronic oxides, on the other hand, are one of the most fascinating classes of materials. Their integration on glass underpins touch screens, which have become ubiquitous. However, there is an important class of electronic oxides -piezoelectrics-, whose potential has not yet been fully revealed on glass. Piezoelectrics can transform electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa. Intense research on their integration- and especially lead zirconate titanate, the flagship piezoelectric - on silicon-based electronics resulted in widespread applications like actuators in inkjet printers and autofocus lenses in mobile phones. Two main challenges impede integration of thin-film piezoelectrics on glass: (1) Processing temperatures above 650 °C, which are beyond the usable range of commercial glasses; (2) incompatibility of standard deposition technologies such as vacuum- and spin-coating-based with large glass sheets.

In the project we will address these two challenges by growing lead zirconate titanate on glass using flash lamp annealing method, which enables heating of thin-film materials on temperature-sensitive substrates. For the deposition technique we will use inkjet printing, a digital additive manufacturing technique, which enables printing on large sheets. The project will enable growth of piezoelectric thin films below 500 °C and will fully unleash their potential in glass-based electronics.


Must have requirements

Is Your profile described below? Are you our future colleague? Apply now!

You hold PhD degree in Materials Science or related discipline. You have solid experience with processing of electronic oxides. Knowledge on structural and electromechanical characterization of piezoelectrics is strongly desired. Background knowledge on chemistry will be required for successful execution of the project. Understanding of finite element modeling is a strong asset. 

Fluency in written and spoken English is a must. 

If you possess these interdisciplinary skills and you are also a team player, then you are the person we are looking for!

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a PhD student to work on the synthesis of copper/carbons materials for the development of High Ampacity composites. This project is a follow-up of a finishing industrial project that successfully set-up, among other, an innovative synthesis method of such materials into standard electrolytic aqueous media.

Copper possesses quite high electro- and heat conductivities and is therefore leading many applications such as electronics, electrical household equipments, transport and aeronautics. Nevertheless, the change in energy systems and the overall technology progress generate a need for improving the copper physical properties. This means the development of new copper-based composites based on the use of nanofabrication.

We are looking for a Master Student who is expected to strongly contribute to this project through the development and the optimisation of new Copper – Carbon Nanostructure architectures for high ampacity composites. By using different fabrication techniques such as nanospray and electrodeposition, the first objective will be the fabrication of strongly bonded Co-C using a multilayers approach. The second objective will be the development of specific characterization protocols to identify the interfacial enhancer which impact the electrical functional properties. The PhD student will actively contribute to the fabrication of different Copper-Carbon structures with specific functionalisation steps to provide a composite with a high ampacity. One of the main challenges will be to design the experiments in order to improve the understanding and the modelling of the electrical conductivity in such complex structures. He/she will have to assess the best technological configuration and the related understandings to provide in the end a demonstrator to be tested in real conditions in a view of aeronautics application.

The work will be conducted in the framework of a large industrial R&D collaboration between a middle size Luxembourgish company and LIST. The candidate will be located at LIST (Belvaux) and will have regular contacts with the company.

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a two years postdoctoral position to work on the electrochemical synthesis of copper/nanocarbons materials for the development of new and sustainable lightning strike protections (LSP). Current airplanes are mainly constituted by non-electrically conductive plastic parts. LSP are electrically conductive materials integrated in their fuselage to mitigate the extent of damages on the airplanes in the occurrence of a lightning strikes event. Current LSPs are mainly relying on copper meshes. The project on which the post-doc will be recruited is a follow-up of a finishing industrial project that highlighted interesting/promising LSPs properties of new copper/nanocarbons materials. The development of lighter LSPs would contribute to enhance the sustainability of airplanes by decreasing their fuel consumption.

The work will be conducted in the framework of a large industrial R&D collaboration between a middle size Luxembourgish company and LIST. The candidate will be located at LIST (Belvaux) and will have regular contacts with the company.

The methodology towards this goal consists in a unified formulation toward the development of geometrically non-linear (large displacements and rotations in a Green-Lagrange sense) higher-order layer-wise hierarchical models for VSC plate and shell structures to be also extended into a two-stage global-local modelling and optimization strategy.

Envisaged outcomes are: the formulation of higher-order three-dimensional VSC shell models; building a comprehensive knowledge on VSCs, structural modelling, software implementation; mastering scientific writing and oral presentation; scientific dissemination in the form of journal articles and conference talks; development of a scientific mind-set based on rigor and curiosity.

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

You will work on the GRASS project 

The increase of drought intensity and frequency as a result of global warming constitutes a major threat on the sustainability of water resources and food security. To contribute to the prediction and mitigation of impacts of droughts, the FNR-funded GRASS project aims to jointly assimilate into a hydrological model two complementary types of Earth Observation data, namely soil moisture retrieved from the Sentinel-1 mission and total water storage changes obtained from GRACE&GRACE-FO. Regularly controlled process-based model predictions shall then support an agricultural drought monitoring service based on agile drone campaigns over Luxembourg and the Greater Region. Via advanced hydrological modelling and data assimilation approaches combined with a very high resolution drone monitoring capability, we aim to generate near real-time predictions of high-resolution surface soil moisture, root-zone soil moisture, groundwater and total water storage as well as plant-based water stress indicators over the Greater Region. 

The synergistic use of such data sets will: 

1) contribute to a more accurate assessment of soil water and groundwater availability in Luxembourg and the Greater Region; 

2) improve drought hazard assessment and prediction by developing suitable hydrological indicators; 

3) contribute to the development of a more holistic water resources management strategy, thereby supporting evidence-based decision support; 

4) provide relevant information to the insurance industry with respect to the estimation of climate change-induced economic loss; 

5) anticipate and characterise agricultural droughts that may occur as a result of hydrological droughts.

Characterizing droughts both from a hydrological and an agricultural point of view is expected to help stakeholders like farmers, local water resources administrations and insurance companies to better anticipate droughts and evaluate their severity.

Through the project, we aim to develop an operational drought awareness system for Luxembourg and the Greater Region.

You will work on the set up and development of the drought forecasting system based on the assimilation of satellite earth observation derived soil moisture (Sentinel-1) and total water storage changes (GRACE&GRACE-FO). You will rely on a close collaboration with remote sensing scientists and hydrodynamic modellers from LIST and RSS-Hydro.

https://www.list.lu/


You ‘d like to contribute as a researcher? 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.


The selected candidate will join ERIN's Environmental and Industrial Biotechnologies (BIOTECH) unit. This RDI unit has developed expertise in (i) proofing new concepts using metabolic engineering and integrative biology approaches for the production of biomolecules of industrial interest produced by plants or microorganisms, ii) developing tools for microbiological hazard assessment and decontamination of emerging microbial pathogens, especially viruses, iii) developing bio-process engineering solutions to convert organic resources into energy and molecules for industry. The BIOTECH unit carries out impact-driven research geared to the development of bio-based products and processes of industrial interest, new biorefinery concepts for more efficient and sustainable processes, and new technologies for the detection and treatment of environmental pollution. 


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The selected candidate will more specifically join the Biosystems and Bioprocessing Engineering group. The team’s main RDI activities relate to the optimization of the biomass conversion technologies and more specifically through the process of anaerobic digestion. We put strong focus on the characterisation of microorganisms and identification of specific microbes of potential industrial relevance. We are a group of engineers, molecular biologists, microbiologists, bioinformaticians and laboratory technicians working together to improve the bioconversion of biomass towards methane production and valorisation of the digestion residue as a natural fertiliser. We would like to diversity the output of the anaerobic digestion process towards production of commodity chemicals, what would reinforce the positioning of the technology at the heart of future biorefinery value chains. To that purpose we have currently been employing new strategies towards cultivation and characterisation of microorganisms (including omics tools), with a focus on biomass hydrolysing species. Together with microbiome and pathway modelling approaches, it will allow us in the future to engineer natural or design artificial consortia towards specific degradation of various biomasses. Pathway engineering and /or development of new systems to further convert resulting fermentation products into added-value molecules is largely considered. 

We are looking for a motivated scientist to develop new strategies of microbiomes and/or pathway design in bacteria and/or minimum cell systems for future production of value-added chemicals from industrial lignocellulosic side streams. 


The candidate is expected to:

• Develop the research domain on microbiome design and/or pathway engineering described above in collaboration with the other team members and other colleagues (strong team working attitude is a must)
