SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services. We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent.
The Centre is rapidly expanding its research activities and is seeking highly motivated doctoral candidates who wish to pursue research in close cooperation with our partners. For further information you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu and https://wwwen.uni.lu/snt/research/finatrax
We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!
Successful candidates will join a young, strong and motivated FINATRAX Research Group. The research group conducts research on the application and the impact of digital technologies like DLT/Blockchain, Digital Identities, Machine Learning/AI, and IoT/5G on organisations in the private or public sector. By doing so, it builds bridges between business research and information systems engineering. The group consists of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers coming from different disciplines (e.g., policy, business, technology) to pursue first-rate research on the design and impact of information systems.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to make an important contribution to several exciting research projects, most notably, FiReSpARX. In this project, the candidate will be tasked with developing a prototypical system for robotic trading in space. Space is becoming an increasingly competitive environment, where private and public players will deploy autonomous entities of all kinds (e.g., satellites, robots, etc.). Economic cooperation and interaction between these will be a key source of value creation. At the same time, such a system will also be highly relevant on earth.
Next to FIRESPARX, successful candidates will carry out research in the context of Prof. Fridgen’s PayPal-FNR PEARL Research Grant in the area of DLT/Blockchain, Digital Identities, and Machine Learning/AI. Successful candidates will thus have the opportunity to investigate a broad range of research areas and design an individual research portfolio. As such, successful candidates will be able to align the skills that they learn pursuing a doctorate with their personal goals and interests.
Qualification: The candidate should possess a master degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Information Systems (Engineering), Mathematics, Physics, or a related field.
What we’re looking for:
The ideal candidate should have some knowledge and/or experience in one or several of the following areas:
Knowledge and/or experience in related areas (e.g., financial markets or economics) will be appreciated but are not a requirement to apply.
Language Skills: Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are required. Knowledge of either French, German or Luxembourgish will be appreciated but are not a requirement to apply.
But wait, there’s more!
Students can take advantage of several opportunities for growth and career development, from free language classes to career resources and extracurricular activities.
Applications, written in English should be submitted through the University’s job portal and should include:
All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.
Early application is highly encouraged, as the applications will be processed upon reception. Please apply formally through the HR system. Applications by email will not be considered.
The University of Luxembourg embraces inclusion and diversity as key values. We are fully committed to removing any discriminatory barrier related to gender, and not only, in recruitment and career progression of our staff.
