Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

Are you pas­sion­ate about sci­ence, full of ideas and innov­at­ive poten­tial that drive change and enjoy work­ing in an inter­na­tional, fast-paced envir­on­ment? Are you motiv­ated by the soci­etal impact of research and seek an oppor­tun­ity to play an instru­mental part in the devel­op­ment of emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies for bio­logy and health­care? Then the Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at the Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich (TUM), Ger­many, and its integ­rated Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum Muenchen is the ideal envir­on­ment for you!
CBI is the corner­stone of a rap­idly expand­ing bioen­gin­eer­ing eco­sys­tem in the Munich sci­ence area; includ­ing the Research Cen­ter Trans­laTUM and the Helm­holtz Pion­eer Cam­pus, which integ­rate bioen­gin­eer­ing with onco­logy and meta­bolic dis­orders, respect­ively. CBI sci­ent­ists develop next-gen­er­a­tion ima­ging and sens­ing meth­ods to meas­ure pre­vi­ously inac­cess­ible prop­er­ties of liv­ing sys­tems, hence, cata­lyz­ing break­throughs in bio­logy and medi­cine. Com­pris­ing 11 inter-dis­cip­lin­ary labor­at­or­ies and sci­ent­ists from more than 25 coun­tries, CBI offers state-of-the-art infra­struc­ture for innov­at­ive research and a per­fect envir­on­ment to accel­er­ate your career. Our research aims to shift the paradigm of bio­lo­gical dis­cov­ery and trans­la­tion to address major health chal­lenges of our time and develop the med­ical solu­tions of tomor­row.
Join our team and be part of our rich and dynamic research cul­ture of enquiry and innov­a­tion. CBI research­ers come from the top ranks of phys­ics, chem­istry, engin­eer­ing, and bio­medi­cine and our pipeline fre­quently yields high-impact papers, suc­cess­ful tech­no­logy spin-offs and com­mer­cial­iz­a­tion. Our research is reg­u­larly fea­tured in major news chan­nels and received broad recog­ni­tion includ­ing sev­eral pres­ti­gi­ous awards and con­sid­er­able research fund­ing from national and inter­na­tional sources.

Postdoc­toral fel­low in fluor­es­cence ima­ging (f/m)

We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated postdoc­toral fel­low (f/m) in fluor­es­cence ima­ging to drive the clin­ical trans­la­tion of novel fluor­es­cence molecu­lar ima­ging sys­tems.

Work­ing field:

We work at the inter­face of tech­no­logy and medi­cine, innov­at­ing ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies based on optical and acous­tic con­trast that can be applied in basic bio­logy research and imple­men­ted in the clinic to sup­port non-invas­ive dia­gnostics, treat­ment and man­age­ment of dis­ease. Our port­fo­lio includes a broad range of tech­niques, includ­ing fluor­es­cence molecu­lar ima­ging and tomo­graphy, optical micro­scopy, optoacous­tic micro­scopy and tomo­graphy, which can gen­er­ate struc­tural and func­tional inform­a­tion about healthy and dis­eased tis­sue at unpre­ced­en­ted depths inside organ­isms. Build­ing upon our extens­ive expert­ise in devel­op­ing meth­ods and sys­tems, we are now focus­ing on the clin­ical trans­la­tion of our tech­niques.
There­fore, if you have expert­ise in sig­nal and image pro­cessing and fluor­es­cence ima­ging, join our team and help us gain as many bio­med­ical rel­ev­ant insights as pos­sible from our ima­ging stud­ies. Our goal is to optim­ize exist­ing and develop new ima­ging plat­forms to con­duct clin­ical stud­ies, as well as to explore new clin­ical applic­a­tions that could bene­fit from our ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies. This is your oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute to a med­ical ima­ging revolu­tion!
The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will lead advances within an innov­at­ive research pro­gram that will shift the paradigm in can­cer early detec­tion by enhan­cing cur­rent endo­scopic per­form­ance with highly sens­it­ive and quant­it­at­ive fluor­es­cence molecu­lar ima­ging in real time. Meth­od­o­lo­gies for the ana­lysis of fluor­es­cence and color images will be developed by the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate to enable the deliv­ery of com­pre­hens­ive inform­a­tion inside the optical theater.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • An Ph.D. in Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Bio­med­ical Engin­eer­ing, Phys­ics or related dis­cip­line.
  • Excel­lent aca­demic records.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • High know­ledge of image and sig­nal pro­cessing, pat­tern recog­ni­tion, and data visu­al­iz­a­tion.
  • Exper­i­ence with machine learn­ing tech­niques and stat­ist­ics is highly appre­ci­ated.
  • In-depth pro­gram­ming skills in MAT­LAB for data ana­lysis. Lab­VIEW pro­gram­ming, C++ skills, robot­ics and/or other rel­ev­ant exper­i­mental skills are an advant­age.
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment.
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage.

What we of­fer:

We offer you the unique chance to make a dif­fer­ence in future health­care. At CBI, we strongly believe in sci­entific excel­lence and innov­a­tion. This is your oppor­tun­ity to be part of and to advance your career in a world-lead­ing research insti­tute, where bioen­gin­eer­ing prin­ciples meet today’s chal­lenges in bio­logy and medi­cine to develop the solu­tions of tomor­row. CBI provides a highly inter­na­tional, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary envir­on­ment with excel­lent oppor­tun­it­ies for pro­fes­sional growth. You will be part of a dynamic, pro­fes­sional and highly motiv­ated team within a stim­u­lat­ing envir­on­ment. We sup­port career devel­op­ment, con­tin­ued edu­ca­tion and life-long learn­ing.
