As a key player in research and innovation in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), with its employees, is active in the domains of materials, the environment and IT. As an Research and Technology Organization and with its interdisciplinary impact-driven approach, LIST contributes to the development of Luxembourg’s economy and society.
The Materials Research and Technology Department (MRT) translates cutting-edge materials research into applicable technology, with about 180 collaborators. For this, the department cultivates close relationships and joint projects with both academic and industrial partners, and contributes to Luxembourg's and Europe's innovation agenda in Materials Research and Technology.
MRT’s platforms, as a transversal entity, offer a combination of recognized scientific and technological competencies and cutting-edge equipment in the field of advanced characterization, testing, composite manufacturing and prototype engineering.
The engineer will join our advanced characterization platform for supporting the activities related to “molecular analyses” team, who is focused on molecular identification, namely based on high-resolution mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography for reverse engineering, and molecular imaging by (AP-)MALDI-HRMS and TOFSIMS.
The candidate will develop and apply molecular analyses methods (chromatography and imaging). She/he will actively participate to the development of new methodologies in the framework of service activity and research projects carried out with internal and/or external partners. Within the team, she/he will particularly focus on topics related to on-going and future activities in the field of biological tissue imaging by MS and studies related to pharmaceutical/cosmetic formulations. The responsibilities of the engineer will also include:
