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.

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!

Your Role

As the successful candidate, you will join the Security, Reasoning and Validation (SeRVal) group of the SnT, headed by Prof. Yves Le Traon. You will contribute more specifically to a partnership project with Lombard International Assurance S.A. (further referred simply as Lombard). The topic of the project is “Data Science for the Insurance” and it concerns the design and implementation of AI and QA methods to support and improve the operations at Lombard. More precisely, the project investigates concrete use cases for AI and data analytics in order to develop new capabilities such as predictive analysis, client profiling, chatbots, AI-assisted software development, etc. In addition, the project team will assist Lombard in setting up a development pipeline for AI technologies that will enable and facilitate the exploration of other use cases in the future. The project is held in close collaboration with Lombard and, as the successful candidate, you will be expected to spend an appreciable amount of your time in their Luxembourgish premises (located in Luxembourg City, in front of the airport).

The supervision team you will be working with is:

  • Dr. Maxime Cordy: research scientist
  • Prof. Yves Le Traon: head of SerVal

You will be required to perform the following tasks:

  • Carrying out research in the predefined areas
  • Disseminating results through scientific publications
