Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

The Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at the Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich (TUM) and the Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum München (HMGU) in Munich, Ger­many are an integ­rated, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary research struc­ture and form the corner­stone of a rap­idly expand­ing bioen­gin­eer­ing eco­sys­tem in Munich; 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.
Join our team and be part of our rich and dynamic research cul­ture of enquiry and innov­a­tion. IBMI research­ers come from the top ranks of phys­ics, chem­istry, engin­eer­ing, and bio­medi­cine and attract sig­ni­fic­ant invest­ment from national and inter­na­tional sources. Our sci­ent­ists serve in inter­na­tional soci­et­ies and con­fer­ences and are recip­i­ents of a mul­ti­tude of top inter­na­tional and Ger­man awards, includ­ing the pres­ti­gi­ous Gottfried Wil­helm Leib­niz prize and sev­eral ERC awards. In addi­tion to sci­entific excel­lence, IBMI pro­motes entre­pren­eur­ship, com­pany spin-off activ­it­ies, and col­lab­or­a­tions with other top aca­demic insti­tu­tions and lead­ing cor­por­a­tions in the photon­ics, phar­ma­ceut­ic­als and health­care sec­tors.

Ph.D. pos­i­tion in Raman spec­tro­scopy (f/m)

We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated Ph.D. stu­dent (f/m) to drive the devel­op­ment of novel meth­od­o­lo­gies for the ana­lysis of Raman spec­tra acquired in clin­ical set­tings.

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will lead advances within an innov­at­ive research pro­gram that devel­ops a novel endo­scope com­bin­ing stim­u­lated Raman spec­tro­scopy and scat­ter­ing. The goal is to shift the paradigm in can­cer early dia­gnosis. The pro­ject is geared toward meth­ods devel­op­ment to ana­lyze the acquired mul­timodal data and to provide fast and accur­ate label-free in vivo biopsy. We expect this pro­ject to res­ult in a sub­stan­tial tech­no­logy leap in can­cer early detec­tion, enabling rapid trans­la­tion into clin­ical dia­gnostics and per­son­al­ized sur­veil­lance inter­vals.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • An M.Sc. in Phys­ics, Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Bio­med­ical Engin­eer­ing or related dis­cip­line.
  • Excel­lent aca­demic records.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • High know­ledge of Raman data pro­cessing, ana­lysis, and clas­si­fic­a­tion.
  • Know­ledge of 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:

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. IBMI provides a highly inter­na­tional, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary envir­on­ment offer­ing excel­lent oppor­tun­it­ies for pro­fes­sional growth and everything you need to achieve out­stand­ing research find­ings lead­ing to high-impact pub­lic­a­tions. We sup­port career devel­op­ment, con­tinu­ing edu­ca­tion and teach­ing and train­ing oppor­tun­it­ies.
Situ­ated in the foot­hills of the Alps, Munich is con­sist­ently ranked as one of the most live­able cit­ies in the world, with an excep­tion­ally high qual­ity of life. Greater Munich is also home to sev­eral world-class uni­versit­ies and research insti­tutes, cre­at­ing a vibrant intel­lec­tual atmo­sphere.
The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will ini­tially have a 3-year con­tract, with the pos­sib­il­ity of exten­sion. Salary will be com­men­sur­ate with work exper­i­ence and seni­or­ity in accord­ance the pub­lic ser­vice wage agree­ment of the Free State of Bav­aria (TV-L E13-65%). As an equal oppor­tun­ity and affirm­at­ive action employer, TUM expli­citly encour­ages applic­a­tions from women as well as from all oth­ers who would bring addi­tional diversity dimen­sions to the uni­versity’s research and teach­ing strategies. Pref­er­ence will be given to dis­abled can­did­ates with essen­tially the same qual­i­fic­a­tions.

How to ap­ply:

We are look­ing for­ward to receiv­ing your com­pre­hens­ive applic­a­tion includ­ing your let­ter of motiv­a­tion, CV and aca­demic tran­scripts of records prefer­ably in Eng­lish and in a single PDF file, via email to Please indic­ate “Ph.D. pos­i­tion in Raman spec­tro­scopy (f/m)” in the sub­ject line.
