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.
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, chem­istry, engin­eer­ing, and bio­medi­cine and attract sig­ni­fic­ant invest­ment from national and inter­na­tional sources. Our sci­ent­ists serve in inter­na­tional soci­et­ies and con­fer­ences and are recip­i­ents of a mul­ti­tude of top inter­na­tional and Ger­man awards, includ­ing the pres­ti­gi­ous Gottfried Wil­helm Leib­niz prize and 10 ERC awards. In addi­tion to sci­entific excel­lence, CBI pro­motes entre­pren­eur­ship, com­pany spin-off activ­it­ies, and col­lab­or­a­tions with other top aca­demic insti­tu­tions and lead­ing cor­por­a­tions in the photon­ics, phar­ma­ceut­ic­als and health­care sec­tors.

To sup­port the insti­tute dir­ector Prof. Vasilis Ntzia­chris­tos and the CBI dir­ect­or­ate, we now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated

Exec­ut­ive sci­entific coordin­ator / exec­ut­ive assist­ant (f/m/d)

Working field:

The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will sup­port the insti­tute dir­ector Prof. Ntzia­chris­tos and will work closely with the exec­ut­ive man­age­ment and admin­is­trat­ive staff of CBI, and cent­ral admin­is­tra­tions of Helm­holtz Munich and TUM. She or he will provide com­pre­hens­ive sup­port to the insti­tute dir­ector at the inter­face of admin­is­tra­tion and sci­ence. The offered pos­i­tion is cru­cial to free the CBI sci­entific lead­er­ship from sci­ence admin­is­trat­ive duties. With an excep­tional level of respons­ib­il­ity and focus on optim­iz­ing effi­cient mana­gerial pro­cesses, the exec­ut­ive sci­entific coordin­ator works seam­lessly with CBI’s expert sci­ent­ists and sci­ence sup­port staff and, hence, serves as token for the future suc­cess and soci­etal impact of CBI through break­through innov­a­tions for improved med­ical ima­ging and health care. In this pos­i­tion, you will act as a:
  • Com­mu­nic­a­tion expert with a pro­act­ive approach to com­mu­nic­a­tion and PR inter­fa­cing between the CBI dir­ect­or­ate and internal and external col­lab­or­at­ors, cent­ral depart­ments at Helm­holtz Munich and TUM (e.g. legal and innov­a­tion depart­ments), stake­hold­ers, decision-makers, and the media.
  • Organ­iz­a­tional mas­ter­mind sup­port­ing the insti­tute dir­ector in day-to-day busi­ness, incl. admin­is­tra­tion of sched­ule, travel and teach­ing activ­it­ies; pre­par­a­tion of sci­entific events, meet­ings and con­fer­ences; pre­par­a­tion of pro­posed res­ol­u­tions for research-admin­is­trat­ive issues; and inform­a­tion con­dens­a­tion.
  • Sci­entific per­sonal assist­ant rep­res­ent­ing the insti­tute dir­ector at aca­demic assem­blies and sup­port­ing the insti­tute dir­ector and IBMI exec­ut­ive man­age­ment, e.g. by del­eg­at­ing tasks within the insti­tute and by pre­par­ing and proofread­ing sci­entific present­a­tions, manuscripts, reports and grant applic­a­tions.
  • Stra­tegic thinker sup­port­ing IBMI’s long-term research agenda and pos­i­tion­ing as a glob­ally com­pet­it­ive cen­ter of bioen­gin­eer­ing with sig­ni­fic­ant impact to bio­lo­gical dis­cov­ery, clin­ical trans­la­tion and com­mer­cial­iz­a­tion of tech­no­lo­gical innov­a­tions.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • Uni­versity degree in nat­ural sci­ences, engin­eer­ing, or busi­ness stud­ies

  • Abil­ity to motiv­ate and inspire col­leagues
  • Strong self-man­age­ment skills
  • Excel­lent sci­ence devel­op­ment and sci­ence man­age­ment acu­men
  • Col­lab­or­at­ive spirit and abil­ity to work in a highly inter­na­tional and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team
  • Great net­work­ing abil­ity and com­mu­nic­a­tion skills
  • Exper­i­ence in rap­idly chan­ging, chal­len­ging, and com­pet­it­ive envir­on­ments
