postdoc computational systems biology Luxemburg

Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Systems Biology at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine in collaboration with the Black Family Stem Cell Institute of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine


The Computational Biology Group seeks a highly skilled and motivated Postdotoral Fellow to work on an exciting project on the application of network biology approaches to study the role of gene expression stochasticity in cell fate commitment. In particular, the selected candidate shall develop a computational model that integrates transcriptomics and epigenomics data to describe heterogeneity in embryonic stem cells and its implication in differentiation. Single cell and cell perturbation experiments will be performed in order to validate the predictions generated by the model. This project will be carried out in collaboration with Profs. Ihor Lemischka and Kateri Moore at the Black Family Stem Cell Institute of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The selected applicant will have the opportunity to visit the experimental labs of our collaborators at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Requirements of the ideal candidate:

  • Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Biology or a related discipline
  • Strong computational skills
  • Prior experience in mathematical modelling of biological networks, especially in network inference and analysis
  • A strong first-author publication record in the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
  • Excellent working knowledge in English.

We offer:

  • Opportunity to do applied research to medical problems within a highly dynamic research institution (LCSB) and in collaboration with internationally recognized partners
  • An exciting international environment
  • A very competitive salary
