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, health­care and envi­ron­men­tal app­li­ca­ti­ons? 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 Muen­chen (HMGU), 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, 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. 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, bio­me­di­cine and com­pu­ter sci­ence and our pipe­line fre­quently yields high-impact papers, suc­cess­ful tech­no­logy spin-offs and com­mer­cia­li­za­tion. Our rese­arch is regu­larly fea­tured in major news chan­nels and has recei­ved broad reco­gni­tion inclu­ding several pres­ti­gious awards and con­si­dera­ble rese­arch fun­ding from natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal sources.
We now seek a highly qua­li­fied and moti­va­ted Post-doc­to­ral rese­ar­cher (f/m/d) to deve­lop novel, com­pact opti­cal sys­tems and ultra­so­nic sen­sors for bio­me­di­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons.

Post­doc­to­ral fel­low (f/m/d) in optoacoustic sen­sor deve­lop­ment


At CBI, we are pushing the limits of reso­lu­tion, depth, speed, con­trast coverage, spe­ci­fi­city and sen­si­ti­vity of opti­cal ima­ging. Optoacoustic ima­ging com­bi­nes high con­trast and high reso­lu­tion of opti­cal exci­ta­tion in a depth com­pa­ra­ble to that of ultra­sound ima­ging. These cha­rac­te­ris­tics give optoacoustic ima­ging a com­pe­ti­tive edge over other ima­ging methods cur­r­ently app­lied in bio­logy, medi­cine, envi­ron­men­tal sen­sing and pol­lu­tion moni­to­ring. As a next step in deve­lo­ping optoacoustic devices for real-world app­li­ca­ti­ons, we aim at minia­tu­ri­zing both the illu­mi­na­tion source and ultra­sound detec­tor in order to create low-cost, por­ta­ble sen­sors for use in labo­ra­to­ries, cli­nics, and in the field. Fur­ther­more, we need to under­stand the impact of the device in com­pa­ri­son with other tech­no­lo­gies and study its per­for­mance in real cli­ni­cal set­tings to cali­brate its poten­tial impact.
The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will deve­lop novel minia­tu­ri­zed illu­mi­na­tion sources and ultra­sound detec­tors for optoacoustic sen­sing and com­bine them with novel signal pro­ces­sing tech­ni­ques based on arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.

The deve­lop­ment pro­cess will give the suc­cess­ful can­di­date the oppor­tu­nity to streng­t­hen her/his skills on state-of-the-art elec­tro­nics, lasers, optics, pro­to­ty­p­ing, 3D prin­ting and cut­ting-edge com­pu­ta­tio­nal approa­ches. She/he will be invol­ved with every stage of device design, pro­to­ty­p­ing and tes­ting, as well as with dis­se­mi­na­tion of results in publi­ca­ti­ons and at con­fe­ren­ces as well as in the form of IP pro­duc­tion, spin-offs and com­mer­cia­li­za­tion.
