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.
In our Translational Optoacoustics team, we are reaching the next frontiers in label-free optical microscopy and non-invasive biosensing by development and application of mid-infrared optoacoustic imaging and spectroscopy that have a direct impact in the clinics. Optoacoustic sensing combines the high-contrast and high-resolution of optical excitation with the imaging depth of ultrasound detection. Additionally, the high-scalability and multidimensionality of optoacoustic imaging allows its combination with chemical-specific laser excitation that can be applied in living cells, animal models, and humans. To accomplish this, we develop innovative custom-built sensing technologies and apply state-of the-art laser technologies found in just few places around the world.
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.
