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 in optoacous­tic sens­ing (f/m/d)

Work­ing field:

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.
