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 11 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.
The group for AI in optoacous­tics is look­ing for a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated phys­i­cian (f/m/d) to drive the organ­iz­a­tion and data acquis­i­tion of a clin­ical optoacous­tic ima­ging study in the con­text of an ERC-fun­ded pro­ject. As part of the pro­ject, you will have an oppor­tun­ity to pur­sue a Dr. med. PhD pro­gram.

Phys­i­cian for optoacous­tic ima­ging (f/m/d)

Working field:

Radiom­ics – the extrac­tion of clin­ic­ally rel­ev­ant inform­a­tion from com­plex med­ical ima­ging data via math­em­at­ics and data sci­ence – is on the verge of becom­ing a main player in clin­ical research and medi­cine. However, the cur­rent radiom­ics work­flow mostly relies on fea­ture engin­eer­ing and black box machine learn­ing, lag­ging behind the state-of-the-art in explain­able arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. Con­trib­ute to the imple­ment­a­tion of intel­li­gent radiom­ics by integ­rat­ing the whole ima­ging value chain – ran­ging from ima­ging hard­ware, over image form­a­tion, to med­ical inter­pret­a­tion of the data – into an intel­li­gent soft­ware envir­on­ment.
The clin­ical use case of the pro­ject is optoacous­tic ima­ging of peri­pheral neuro­pathy. The internal struc­ture and vas­cu­lar sup­ply of peri­pheral nerves can be visu­al­ized in unpre­ced­en­ted detail by exploit­ing the spec­tral con­trast of optoacous­tic ima­ging. The pro­ject, thus, has the poten­tial to enable early detec­tion of patho­lo­gical changes in peri­pheral nerves, e.g., in con­junc­tion with dia­betes.
There­fore, if you are inter­ested in con­duct­ing a clin­ical study in med­ical ima­ging, join our team and help us gain as many med­ic­ally rel­ev­ant insights as pos­sible from our ima­ging data. This is your oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute to a med­ical ima­ging revolu­tion!


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • An MD or extens­ive med­ical exper­i­ence.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • Exper­i­ence with ultra­sound ima­ging.
  • Exper­i­ence with clin­ical stud­ies is an advant­age.
  • Pro­gram­ming skills in MAT­LAB / Python are an advant­age.
  • 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. TUM offers a wide vari­ety of inspir­ing and chal­len­ging PhD pro­grams, which will sup­ple­ment your research train­ing with out­stand­ing oppor­tun­it­ies for career devel­op­ment, con­tin­ued edu­ca­tion and life-long learn­ing.

The group for AI in optoacous­tics is well-integ­rated in the Munich med­ical ima­ging eco­sys­tem, work­ing closely with the Insti­tutes on Com­pu­ta­tional Bio­logy (ICB) and AI for Health (AIH) at Helm­holtz Munich and with strong ties to the Klinikum rechts der Isar and the inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research cen­ter Trans­laTUM.

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 work exper­i­ence and seni­or­ity (Free State of Bav­aria, TV-L E13-50%). As an equal oppor­tun­ity and affirm­at­ive action employer, TUM expli­citly encour­ages applic­a­tions from women as well as from all oth­ers who would bring addi­tional diversity dimen­sions to the uni­versity’s research and teach­ing strategies. 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 / phys­i­cian optoacous­tic ima­ging” in the sub­ject line.
