Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

The Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich (TUM) and Helm­holtz Zen­trum München - Ger­man Research Cen­ter for Envir­on­mental Health jointly invite applic­a­tions for the pos­i­tion of Ten­ure Track Assist­ant Pro­fessor in » Trans­la­tional Optoacous­tics « to begin at the earli­est pos­sible date. The pos­i­tion is a W2 fixed-term pos­i­tion (6 years) with ten­ure track to a ten­ured W3 pos­i­tion (Asso­ci­ate Pro­fessor).

Sci­entific envir­on­ment:
The pro­fess­or­ship belongs to the TUM School of Medi­cine and will be affil­i­ated with the Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging at Helm­holtz Zen­trum München, and the TUM Cen­ter for Trans­la­tional Can­cer Research (Trans­laTUM). The TUM School of Medi­cine is glob­ally renowned for its strong focus on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and trans­la­tional research and its embrace of state-of-the-art tech­no­logy for pre­ven­tion, early dia­gnosis, and pre­ci­sion medi­cine. Helm­holtz Zen­trum München is an inter­na­tion­ally renowned research cen­ter that devel­ops fun­da­mental prin­ciples for per­son­al­ized medi­cine of the future. Close inter­ac­tions among the Helm­holtz Zen­trum, the TUM Depart­ment of Engin­eer­ing and vari­ous TUM depart­ments in life sci­ences ensure a highly stim­u­lat­ing and pro­duct­ive nexus in bio­med­ical engin­eer­ing.

Respons­ib­il­it­ies of the pos­i­tion include research, teach­ing and pro­mo­tion of early-career sci­ent­ists. We seek to appoint an expert in the research area of optoacous­tic ima­ging and sens­ing tech­no­logy, includ­ing mac­ro­scopy, micro­scopy and data ana­lyt­ics with poten­tial for clin­ical trans­la­tion. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will strengthen optoacous­tic ima­ging as a stand-alone tech­no­logy or as part of multi-mod­al­ity sys­tems, as well as pro­mote its clin­ical trans­la­tion. Teach­ing will involve courses in bach­elor and mas­ter pro­grams at TUM, includ­ing in the newly estab­lished mas­ter course “Bio­med­ical Engin­eer­ing”.


We are look­ing for a can­did­ate who has demon­strated ini­tial sci­entific achieve­ments and the capa­city for inde­pend­ent research at the highest inter­na­tional stand­ards. A uni­versity degree and an out­stand­ing doc­toral degree or equi­val­ent sci­entific qual­i­fic­a­tion as well as ped­ago­gical aptitude, includ­ing the abil­ity to teach in Eng­lish, are also pre­requis­ites. Inter­na­tional research exper­i­ence is expec­ted. Can­did­ates should have demon­strated the abil­ity to acquire third-party fund­ing for col­lab­or­at­ive research pro­jects (e.g. from the DFG, EU, or BMBF) and to act­ively col­lab­or­ate on such pro­jects. Can­did­ates who have pre­vi­ously obtained an advanced per­sonal research fel­low­ship (such as from the ERC or from the DFG's Heis­en­berg Pro­gram) are par­tic­u­larly encour­aged to apply.

What we of­fer:

Based on best inter­na­tional stand­ards and trans­par­ent per­form­ance cri­teria, TUM offers a merit-based aca­demic career option for ten­ure track fac­ulty from Assist­ant Pro­fessor through a per­man­ent pos­i­tion as Asso­ci­ate Pro­fessor, and on to Full Pro­fessor. The reg­u­la­tions of TUM Fac­ulty Recruit­ment and Career Sys­tem apply.
TUM provides excel­lent work­ing con­di­tions in a lively sci­entific com­munity, embed­ded in the vibrant research envir­on­ment of the Greater Munich Area. As a rule, the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will not be employed as a “Beamter” under Ger­man law but instead as a uni­versity pro­fessor under private law. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will be gran­ted leave of absence by TUM in order to lead the Research Group in “Trans­la­tional Optoacous­tics” at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum München based on a private-law employ­ment agree­ment.
The TUM Munich Dual Career Office (MDCO) provides tailored career con­sult­ing to the part­ners of newly appoin­ted pro­fess­ors. MDCO provides assist­ance for relo­ca­tion and integ­ra­tion of new pro­fess­ors, their part­ners and accom­pa­ny­ing fam­ily mem­bers.

How to ap­ply:

TUM and Helm­holtz Zen­trum München are equal oppor­tun­ity employ­ers. As such, we expli­citly encour­age applic­a­tions from women. Applic­a­tions from dis­abled per­sons with essen­tially the same qual­i­fic­a­tions will be given pref­er­ence.
Applic­a­tion doc­u­ments should be sub­mit­ted in accord­ance with TUM’s applic­a­tion guidelines for pro­fess­ors. These guidelines and detailed inform­a­tion about the TUM Fac­ulty Recruit­ment and Career Sys­tem are avail­able at Here you will also find TUM’s on col­lect­ing and pro­cessing per­sonal data as part of the applic­a­tion pro­cess.
Please send your applic­a­tion no later than 16 Octo­ber 2019 to the Dean of the TUM School of Medi­cine, Prof. Peter Hen­ning­sen, Ismaninger Str. 22, 81675 Munich. Email address for applic­a­tions:
