The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the University of Luxembourg. We conduct fundamental and translational research in the field of Systems Biology and Biomedicine – in the lab, in the clinic and in silico. We focus on neurodegenerative processes and are especially interested in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and their contributing factors.
The LCSB recruits talented scientists from various disciplines: computer scientists, mathematicians, biologists, chemists, engineers, physicists and clinicians from more than 50 countries currently work at the LCSB. We excel because we are truly interdisciplinary and together we contribute to science and society.
The Imaging AI group at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine is offering a fully funded PhD student position.
The junior group in Imaging AI develops applied AI research focused on biomedical signal analysis and medical image computing. Applications cover the classical problems of segmentation, classification, and prediction modelling. Our aim towards more robust AI models for medical image computing, in particular by domain adaptation, joint embedding architectures or similar techniques. The general aim is translating bleeding edge algorithms from fundamental AI research closer to a concrete biomedical application. Application focuses are currently neurodegenerative diseases and brain tumours.
