Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

The Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at Helmholtz Munich and the Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are an integrated, multi-disciplinary re-search structure and form the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem in Mu-nich, Germany; including the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus and the Research Center TranslaTUM, which integrate bioengineering with metabolic disorders and oncology, respectively. IBMI 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, IBMI offers state-of-the-art infrastructure for innovative research and a perfect environment to accelerate your career.

We now seek a highly qualified and motivated PhD student in fluorescence molecular endoscopy (f/m/x) to drive the development of a novel fluorescence molecular endoscope.

Your mission

We work at the interface of technology and medicine, innovating imaging technologies based on optical and acoustic contrast that can be applied in basic biology research and implemented in the clinic to support non-invasive diagnostics, treatment and management of disease. Our portfolio includes a broad range of techniques, including fluorescence molecular imaging and tomography, optical microscopy, optoacoustic microscopy and tomography, that can generate structural and functional information about healthy and diseased tissue at unprecedented depths inside organisms. Building upon our extensive expertise in developing methods and systems, we are now focusing on the clinical translation of our techniques.

Therefore, if you have expertise in optics, imaging sensors, and sensor evaluation boards join our team and help us gain as many biomedical relevant insights as possible from our imaging studies. Our goal is to develop a unique endoscope for near infrared fluorescence molecular imaging, as well as to explore new clinical applications that could benefit from such a technology. This is your opportunity to contribute to a medical imaging revolution!

Your qualifications

The successful applicant must have the following:

  • A master degree in Engineering, Physics, Optics or related discipline.
  • Strong motivation, scientific curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence.
  • Experience with miniaturized sensors, hardware control, and programming.
  • Expertise in electronics, imaging, and embedded systems.
  • Programming skills in C++ / Labview are an advantage.
  • Excellent writing skills and motivation to publish.
  • Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment.
  • Excellent command of the English language.
