"Euraxess had an important role since the beginning. First, I saw the advertisement for the position on Euraxess website. And after the position was offered to me, Euraxess Luxembourg continued to assist me to settle down in the country, looking for a place to live, and with bank procedures."

 

1. How did you hear about Luxembourg and why did you decide to work in Luxembourg?

Although I had never visited Luxembourg before coming here to work, I had heard and read about it. Therefore, when I arrived here I already knew some characteristics of the country. Like the multicultural aspect of the country, a place where foreigners are welcome, the uniqueness of being the only remaining Grand Duchy in the world, among other characteristics and curiosities. Therefore, when I saw the open position on Euraxess website with a description that matched perfectly with my profile, I did not have to think much to apply, for which I was eventually offered the position.

2. Name three characteristics about research work in Luxembourg or about Luxembourg in general.

For me some of the best aspects about Luxembourg are the high investments in research, the international environment at work, and the quality of life.

3. What role did Euraxess play in this whole process (in the process of your settlement in Luxembourg)? Describe your experience with Euraxess Luxembourg.

Euraxess had an important role since the beginning. First, I saw the advertisement for the position on Euraxess website. And after the position was offered to me, Euraxess Luxembourg continued to assist me to settle down in the country, looking for a place to live, and with bank procedures.

4. A message to anyone who is considering looking for partners in research in Luxembourg or moving to Luxembourg for work?

Luxembourg is a small country, but it has many special and charming places to visit. And for being in the centre of Europe it is only a few hours away from many other countries. Second, Luxembourg is investing a lot in research making the country a very interesting place for work and for making new partnerships with institutes and universities from around the globe.
