: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.
The Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at Helmholtz Munich and the Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are an integrated, multi-disciplinary research structure and form the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem in Munich, Germany. IBMI scientists develop next-generation imaging and sensing methods to measure previously inaccessible properties of living systems, hence, catalyzing breakthroughs in biology, medicine and the environment.
We now seek a highly qualified and motivated Ph.D. candidate (f/m/x) to drive the development of a novel type of Optoacoustic in vivo imaging system with superior resolution while maintaining penetra-tion depth of several millimeters – going beyond state-of-the-art multiphoton and bioluminescence imaging in life-sciences alike.
Neuherberg near Munich
Optoacoustic imaging (e.g. MSOT and RSOM) combines the versatile contrast of optical imaging with the 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 develop an instrumentation that links the high resolution of raster scanning optoacoustic mesoscopy (RSOM) with pulsed diode powered excitation and locked-in detection to allow obtaining cellular resolution in several millimeters’ depth in the live animal.
The project is a joined effort with other renowned laboratories from France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, that contribute for example AI based data analysis as well as custom electronics and ultrasound-transducer development. Hence the successful candidate will not only develop instrumentation but also function as the linking hub between the partner groups – resulting in truly international and interdisciplinary work.
The successful applicant must have the following:
The following qualifications are considered beneficial:
scientific training at Graduate School
flexible working hours & time off in lieu
30 days annual leave
on-site health management service
company pension scheme discounted public transport ticket
Munich, with its numerous lakes and its vicinity to the Alps, is considered to be one of the cities with the best quality of life worldwide. With its first-class universities and world-leading research institutions it offers an intellectually stimulating environment.
This position also provides the opportunity for you to build specialist knowledge and collect significant professional experience, both of which will help advance your scientific career.
Remuneration and social benefits are based on the collective wage agreement for public-sector employees at federal level (EG 13 65% TV EntgO Bund). The position is (initially) limited to three years, but under certain circumstances an extension can be arranged.
We are looking forward to receiving your comprehensive online application including your letter of motivation, CV and academic transcripts of records, preferably in English and in a single PDF file.
To promote diversity, we welcome applications from talented people regardless of gender, cultural background, nationality, ethnicity, sexual identity, physical abilities, religion and age. Qualified applicants with physical disabilities will be given preference.
If you have obtained a university degree abroad, we require further documents from you regarding the recognition of the degree.
