The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Luxembourg. LCSB develops and applies systems-level approaches to gain insight into the molecular and cellular mechanisms of human diseases. Experimental and computational approaches are combined to analyse the complexity of biological systems underlying disease pathogenesis. The LCSB is pioneering the way for a predictive, preventive and personalized medicine.
We are looking for an experienced postdoc to work within a team developing a state-of-the-art knowledge repository about the mechanisms of autoimmune disorders for a H2020 project ‘SYSCID (’ and for an IMI project BioMAP on biocuration of cellular and molecular mechanisms in immunology disease areas: Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematodes, Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis.
Your Role
• Curate facts from the relevant literature into a digital, standardized repository of disease mechanisms.
• Communicate with consortium partners to gather and implement their guidelines.
