The University | About us...

The University of Luxembourg is an international research university with a distinctly multilingual and interdisciplinary character. The University was founded in 2003 and counts more than 6,700 students and more than 2,000 employees from around the world. The University’s faculties and interdisciplinary centres focus on research in the areas of Computer Science and ICT Security, Materials Science, European and International Law, Finance and Financial Innovation, Education, Contemporary and Digital History. In addition, the University focuses on cross-disciplinary research in the areas of Data Modelling and Simulation as well as Health and System Biomedicine. Times Higher Education ranks the University of Luxembourg #3 worldwide for its “international outlook,” #20 in the Young University Ranking 2021 and among the top 250 universities worldwide.

The Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) contributes multidisciplinary expertise in the fields of Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Life Sciences and Medicine. Through its dual mission of teaching and research, the FSTM seeks to generate and disseminate knowledge and train new generations of responsible citizens, in order to better understand, explain and advance society and environment we live in.

The University of Luxembourg (UL) is seeking to hire a highly motivated and skilled Computational Science Research Scientist within the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine linked to HPC service of the University of Luxembourg.

Since 2006, the University of Luxembourg has invested into its own High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities. Special focus was laid on the development of large computing power combined with huge data storage capacity to accelerate the research performed in intensive computing and large-scale data analytic (Big Data). This characteristic distinguishes the HPC center at the university from many other HPC facilities, which often concentrate on only one of these two pillars. Nowadays, the UL HPC team is deeply involved in the national and European HPC developments. Further information can be found on The activities include classical HPC applications such as simulation and modeling, but also emerging ones including artificial intelligence and machine learning, bridging computational science, with data science, and data management (IoT/Edge/HPC).

Your Role...

The HPC team is organized into 2 groups: one group managing the digital platform (i.e., ensuring that the system including middleware is in place and functioning), and one group providing the high-level support to end users.
