The applicant will join Environmental Research and Innovation Department and will be incorporated in the Environmental Health Group. The Environmental Health Group develops complex 3D - in vitro models for toxicological testing as a major research activity. Such models undergo in house validation under laboratory conditions and are applied to a wide range of contaminants from chemicals to nanomaterials. These models are then applied within nationally and internationally funded research projects and in collaborative research projects with industry.
She/he replaces an employee on maternity leave and will work in the framework of projects aiming at further development, pre-validation and application of new in vitro models for lung toxicity, which are currently lacking models in the field of alternative methods. The projects are designed to help bridge the technical and funding gap between research-driven discoveries and their commercialisation/utilisation, thereby enhancing the impact of Luxembourg’s research on economy and society.
The applicant’s main tasks will be related to recently funded projects in which a set of assays will be applied and further developed along the TRL scale with the final aim to commercialise these assays.
She/he will mainly be asked to:
