Post-Doctoral Researcher in computer science FOR
Fixed term contract | Fulltime/40h | Belval


The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is appointing a Junior R&T
Associate for the RDI Group "Digital Built Environment Management", which is part of the
"IT for Innovative Services" (ITIS) Department.

The RDI Group "Digital Built Environment Management" carries out research in digital
technologies applied to buildings and construction. Digital models, e.g. Building Information
Modeling, play a significant role in the design, construction and management of built
environment nowadays. Beyond building engineering, BIM extended to energy modelling
and simulation, or usage modelling, paves the way to optimized decision-making as well as
smart buildings and cities.

The candidate will join the 4DCollab project which addresses collaborative 4D/BIM usages
through a prospective ergonomics approach. It aims at defining innovative collaborative
construction work practices, enabling multi-disciplinary decision-making through novel
interaction techniques with 4D/BIM models. Further, the project aims to develop a software
prototype for implementing 4D-related features, enabling multi-user decision-making.


LIST is looking for a highly motivated researcher who holds a PhD degree in Construction
Engineering, Architectural Engineering or Computer Science for contributing to this project.
In particular, her/his focus would be to contribute to the selection and development of
ontologies, sets of rules, as well as to supervise and contribute to the development of the
information system relying on BIM standards.



 Hold a PhD degree in the field of Construction Engineering or Architectural
Engineering or Computer Science


 Have engineering skills, applied to buildings and construction

 Have modelling and programming skills in object-oriented design
