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 Helm­holtz Munich) are an integ­rated, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary research struc­ture and form the corner­stone of a rap­idly expand­ing bioen­gin­eer­ing eco­sys­tem in Munich, Ger­many; 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, medi­cine and the envir­on­ment. 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.
We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated PhD stu­dent in fluor­es­cence molecu­lar endo­scopy (f/m/d) to drive the devel­op­ment of a novel fluor­es­cence molecu­lar endo­scope.

PhD stu­dent in fluor­es­cence molecu­lar endo­scopy (f/m/d)

Working field:

We work at the inter­face of tech­no­logy and medi­cine, innov­at­ing ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies based on optical and acous­tic con­trast that can be applied in basic bio­logy research and imple­men­ted in the clinic to sup­port non-invas­ive dia­gnostics, treat­ment and man­age­ment of dis­ease. Our port­fo­lio includes a broad range of tech­niques, includ­ing fluor­es­cence molecu­lar ima­ging and tomo­graphy, optical micro­scopy, optoacous­tic micro­scopy and tomo­graphy, that can gen­er­ate struc­tural and func­tional inform­a­tion about healthy and dis­eased tis­sue at unpre­ced­en­ted depths inside organ­isms. Build­ing upon our extens­ive expert­ise in devel­op­ing meth­ods and sys­tems, we are now focus­ing on the clin­ical trans­la­tion of our tech­niques.
There­fore, if you have expert­ise in optics, ima­ging sensors, and sensor eval­u­ation boards join our team and help us gain as many bio­med­ical rel­ev­ant insights as pos­sible from our ima­ging stud­ies. Our goal is to develop a unique endo­scope for near infrared fluor­es­cence molecu­lar ima­ging, as well as to explore new clin­ical applic­a­tions that could bene­fit from such a tech­no­logy. This is your oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute to a med­ical ima­ging revolu­tion!


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • A mas­ter degree in Engin­eer­ing, Phys­ics, Optics or related dis­cip­line.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity, and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • Exper­i­ence with mini­atur­ized sensors, hard­ware con­trol, and pro­gram­ming.
  • Expert­ise in elec­tron­ics, ima­ging, and embed­ded sys­tems.
  • Pro­gram­ming skills in C++ / Lab­view are an advant­age.
  • Excel­lent writ­ing skills and motiv­a­tion to pub­lish.
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment.
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage.

What we offer:

We offer you the unique chance to make a dif­fer­ence in future health­care. 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, medi­cine, and envir­on­mental health to develop the solu­tions of tomor­row. CBI provides a highly inter­na­tional, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary envir­on­ment with excel­lent oppor­tun­it­ies for pro­fes­sional growth. You will be part of a dynamic, pro­fes­sional and highly motiv­ated team within a stim­u­lat­ing envir­on­ment and gain inter­na­tional expos­ure through our part­ners and col­lab­or­at­ors across Europe and the world. We sup­port career devel­op­ment, con­tin­ued edu­ca­tion, and life-long learn­ing.

Situ­ated on the foot­hills of the Alps, Munich is con­sist­ently ranked as one of the most vibrant and enjoy­able cit­ies in the world, with an excep­tion­ally qual­ity of life. Greater Munich is also home to sev­eral world-class uni­versit­ies and research insti­tutes, cre­at­ing a truly inspir­ing intel­lec­tual atmo­sphere.

The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will ini­tially have a 3-year con­tract, with the pos­sib­il­ity of exten­sion. Salary will com­men­sur­ate with train­ing, work exper­i­ence, and seni­or­ity (TV-L E13-65% of Free State of Bav­aria). 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.

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. Please indic­ate “PhD stu­dent in fluor­es­cence molecu­lar endo­scopy” in the sub­ject line.
