Helmholtz Zentrum München is a research center with the mission to discover personalized medical solutions for the prevention and therapy of environmentally triggered diseases and promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

News on the Corona pandemic
We continue to recruit and are looking exactly for you. To this end, we have adapted our recruitment process to ensure the greatest possible health protection for both our applicants and our employees. After successfully reviewing your application documents, we will invite you to a friendly video call or telephone interview, no special devices needed. Here we simulate a face-to-face interview situation in order to get to know you better. Fight with us against the spread of environmentally related diseases and apply now.

At our institute you will find a scientifically stimulating international environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infrastructure you will have the opportunity to make an important contribution for a healthier society.

Our mission: The newly established Institute for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (iTERM) develops and implements tools to analyze the 3D structure and molecular identity of biological samples. At iTERM, we bring together cutting-edge science from biology, chemistry, engineering, and computer applications. Our overarching aim is to obtain a holistic view of interconnected biological systems in health and disease. We develop deep learning algorithms (AI) to analyze large imaging and molecular data in a robust and unbiased way. Our research received high attention from high-profile scientific journals (Nature Methods Pan Cai…Ertürk, 2016, Nature Neuroscience Cai Pan…Ertürk 2018, Cell, 2019, Pan Schoppe…Ertürk, Cell Zhao…Ertürk, 2020, Nature Methods Todorov Paetzold…Ertürk, 2020) and media including New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Süddeutsche Zeitung. You can find more about us at
iTERM is located in the Munich area, which is listed as one of the best cities to live in the world every year. iTERM is an interdisciplinary and international team. Our working language is English.

We are aiming to strengthen our new institute with highly motivated
