Contract type: Permanent contract
The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is offering a permanent engineer position in bioprocess engineering. The successful candidate will join the “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department, and in particular its Environmental Research and Technology Platform (ERTP). With a team of more than 180 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the ERIN department has the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, and efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control.
The ERTP makes state-of-the art monitoring, analytical, computational and modelling resources accessible to industry, public stakeholders and research. It offers a unique combination of high-level expertise, state-of-the art instruments and fully equipped labs for environmental analysis, integrative biology, as well as a dense hydro-climatological and biodiversity measurement network. The selected candidate will join more specifically the GreenTech platform, which is gathering the equipment and expertise developed at LIST in analytical chemistry, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, with a special focus on environmental and plant samples. The platform can perform a range of analytical services and relies on its instrumentation, infrastructure and know-how to offer “à la carte” analyses. The nature of investigated samples is very diverse, including water, soil, plants, microorganisms, cell lines, animal tissues, to name a few. In addition, the bioreactor facilities and downstream processing equipment allow providing researchers and industrial partners a research infrastructure for end-to-end bioprocess development (up to TRL5).
We are looking for a motivated and experienced bioprocess engineer with a significant background in the development and optimisation of bioprocesses.
The hired engineer will in particular:
The engineer will work as part of a diverse support team and participate in team and project meetings. She/he will interact effectively and positively with a wide variety of people and facilitate the multidisciplinary teamwork needed to efficiently accomplish project goals.
