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. Together they 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.
We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated postdoc­toral researcher (f/m/d) to drive the devel­op­ment of an advanced sig­nal and image ana­lysis frame­work for clin­ical optoacous­tics.

Postdoc­toral fel­low in
advanced sig­nal/image ana­lyt­ics in clin­ical optoacous­tics (f/m/d)

Working field:

Optoacous­tics, and in par­tic­u­lar multis­pec­tral optoacous­tic tomo­graphy (MSOT) and ras­ter-scan optoacous­tic meso­scopy (RSOM), enable label-free ima­ging of oxy- and deoxy­hemo­globin as intrinsic tis­sue bio­mark­ers to resolve oxy­gen sat­ur­a­tion and util­iz­a­tion as meta­bolic/func­tional indic­at­ors. Moreover, optoacous­tics images lipid dis­tri­bu­tion and water. There­fore, it has strong poten­tial to provide dynamic meas­ure­ments of tis­sue physiology and dis­ease patho­physiology. However, MSOT and RSOM are cur­rently not optim­ized or val­id­ated for clin­ical stud­ies. Our goal is to develop novel meth­ods to develop advanced data ana­lysis and rep­res­ent­a­tion meth­ods, improve optoacous­tic data qual­ity, val­id­ate and quantify MSOT/RSOM readouts in humans within the con­text of vas­cu­lar, meta­bolic and tumor dis­eases and increase their clin­ical util­ity.
The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will be instru­mental in re-design­ing the MSOT/RSOM ana­lysis frame­work, adapt­ing it to clin­ical stud­ies and val­id­at­ing it for dis­ease ima­ging against estab­lished gold-stand­ard ima­ging tech­niques. Given the pre­val­ence of vas­cu­lar, meta­bolic and tumor dis­eases in mod­ern soci­et­ies, this pro­ject has huge poten­tial for high-impact research find­ings and exploit­a­tion. You will be integ­rated into a net­work of high-pro­file research­ers within the Clin­ical Bioen­gin­eer­ing Group, CBI and Uni­versity Hos­pital ‘rechts der Isar’, giv­ing you excel­lent oppor­tun­it­ies for sci­entific inter­ac­tion and pro­fes­sional growth.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • A Ph.D. in Applied Math­em­at­ics, Bio­s­tat­ist­ics, Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Phys­ics or related dis­cip­line.
  • Excel­lent track record of research achieve­ments and pub­lic­a­tions in top-ranked journ­als.
  • Strong back­ground in bio­s­tat­ist­ics and bio­med­ical sig­nal/image ana­lysis.
  • Strong back­ground in apply­ing ima­ging/sens­ing tech­niques to study tis­sue pro­cesses.
  • Strong motiv­a­tion, sci­entific curi­os­ity and com­mit­ment to sci­entific excel­lence.
  • Hands-on exper­i­ence with clin­ical meas­ure­ments is an advant­age.
  • Exper­i­ence with pre­clin­ical/clin­ical optoacous­tics is an advant­age.
  • Pro­gram­ming skills in R, MAT­LAB, and Python are an advant­age.
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment.
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage.
