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 who come from different disciplines (e.g., policy, business, technology) and 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, successful candidates will be tasked with designing an economic framework (e.g, a market with certain incentive schemes) 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 an economic framework will also be highly relevant on earth and successful candidates will have the opportunity to establish first principles of the economy of machines.
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 (Information) Economics, Information Systems (Engineering), Management, Finance, 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 operations research) 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 should be submitted online in English and include:
All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.
Early application is highly encouraged, as the applications will be processed upon reception. Please apply ONLINE formally through the HR system. Applications by email will not be considered.
