Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

Are you pas­sion­ate about sci­ence, full of ideas and innov­at­ive poten­tial and eager to develop emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies for bio­logy and health­care? Then, the Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich (TUM) and the Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at Helm­holtz Zen­trum München (HMGU) is the ideal envir­on­ment for you! Headed by Prof. Vasilis Ntzia­chris­tos, CBI sci­ent­ists develop next-gen­er­a­tion ima­ging and sens­ing meth­ods to meas­ure pre­vi­ously inac­cess­ible prop­er­ties of liv­ing sys­tems, cata­lyz­ing break­throughs in bio­logy and medi­cine. 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. Com­pris­ing 11 inter-dis­cip­lin­ary labor­at­or­ies and sci­ent­ists from more than 25 coun­tries, CBI offers state-of-the-art infra­struc­ture for innov­at­ive research and the per­fect envir­on­ment to accel­er­ate your career. Our research aims at pro­pelling solu­tions for the major health chal­lenges of our time and at accel­er­at­ing their clin­ical trans­la­tion.
As part of CBI, the Fluor­es­cence Ima­ging Group is now recruit­ing highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated Postdoc­toral fel­low in fluor­es­cence ima­ging sys­tem devel­op­ment and sig­nal ana­lysis f/m/d)

Postdoc­toral fel­low in fluor­es­cence ima­ging sys­tem devel­op­ment and sig­nal ana­lysis (f/m/d)

Work­ing field:

We offer you the unique chance to make a dif­fer­ence in future health­care. As part of CBI, we strongly believe in sci­entific excel­lence and innov­a­tion and our research is steer­ing the devel­op­ments in the field of fluor­es­cence ima­ging while we con­tinu­ously boost the clin­ical trans­la­tion of novel tech­no­lo­gies and meth­ods. With sev­eral excit­ing EU and nation­ally fun­ded pro­jects tar­get­ing for example early detec­tion of eso­pha­geal can­cer or tumor delin­eation in breast can­cer, we now have open­ings for PhD stu­dents in the fields of i) sys­tem devel­op­ment for optical ima­ging and tomo­graphy, and ii) advanced meth­ods of image and sig­nal ana­lysis. This is your oppor­tun­ity to advance your career and team up with a world-lead­ing research group, where bioen­gin­eer­ing meets bio­logy and medi­cine to develop ground­break­ing solu­tions for the press­ing med­ical and bio­lo­gical ques­tions of our time.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ants must have the fol­low­ing:
  • A PhD or MSc in Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Bio­med­ical Engin­eer­ing, Phys­ics or related dis­cip­line.
  • Excel­lent study records.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • Strong expert­ise in optics, lasers, and sensors OR image and sig­nal pro­cessing (i.e. fluor­es­cence, reflect­ance, Raman), pat­tern recog­ni­tion, stat­ist­ics, and data visu­al­iz­a­tion.
  • Advanced pro­gram­ming skills in MAT­LAB for data ana­lysis and in Lab­VIEW for hard­ware con­trol. C++ skills, robot­ics and/or other rel­ev­ant exper­i­mental skills are a plus.
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment.
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage.

What we of­fer:
