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) and its integ­rated Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum München (HMGU) in Munich, Ger­many 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, engin­eer­ing, chem­istry, bio­logy and medi­cine 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.
We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated Postdoc­toral fel­low (f/m/d) to drive bio­med­ical and clin­ical applic­a­tions of a unique mul­timodal optical and optoacous­tic micro­scopy ima­ging sys­tem.

Postdoc­toral fel­low in optoacous­tic super-res­ol­u­tion micro­scopy (f/m/d)

Work­ing field:

Optoacous­tic ima­ging com­bines high con­trast and high res­ol­u­tion of optical excit­a­tion with deep pen­et­ra­tion of ultra­sound ima­ging. These char­ac­ter­ist­ics give optoacous­tic ima­ging a com­pet­it­ive edge over other ima­ging meth­ods cur­rently applied in bio­logy and medi­cine. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will lead advances within an innov­at­ive micro­scopy pro­gram that devel­ops hybrid optical and optoacous­tic micro­scopy with res­ol­u­tion bey­ond the dif­frac­tion bar­rier. The goal is to com­bine the super­ior res­ol­u­tion of optical micro­scopy with the multi-modal abil­ity offered by optoacous­tic ima­ging deep within liv­ing tis­sue, thus mer­ging the advant­ages of both tech­niques and cre­at­ing a tool for super-res­ol­u­tion ima­ging at super-depths.

The pro­ject is geared toward sys­tem and meth­od­o­logy devel­op­ment of an advanced ima­ging sys­tem that deliv­ers label free ima­ging and sens­ing of diverse bio­lo­gical com­pon­ents. We expect this pro­ject to res­ult in a sub­stan­tial tech­no­logy leap, lead­ing to import­ant bio­lo­gical break­throughs and trans­la­tion into clin­ical dia­gnostics. The devel­op­ment pro­cess will give the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate the oppor­tun­ity to strengthen her*his skills in state-of-the-art optics and laser tech­no­logy and cut­ting-edge com­pu­ta­tional approaches. She*he will be involved in every stage of micro­scope design, test­ing and applic­a­tion, as well as with dis­sem­in­a­tion of res­ults in the form of pub­lic­a­tions and poten­tially pat­ents.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • A Ph.D. in Phys­ics, Engin­eer­ing, Optics or a related dis­cip­line
  • Excel­lent track record of research achieve­ments and pub­lic­a­tions in top-ranked journ­als
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence
  • Research exper­i­ence in one or more of the fol­low­ing areas: optics; lasers; optical design; micro­scopy, par­tic­u­larly con­focal, multi-photon micro­scopy
  • Expert know­ledge of ima­ging, image pro­cessing / data quan­ti­fic­a­tion and ana­lysis
  • In-depth pro­gram­ming skills in MAT­LAB / Lab­view for device con­trol and syn­chron­iz­a­tion
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage
  • Exper­i­ence in con­struc­tion of optical ima­ging sys­tems “from scratch” is con­sidered an advant­age
