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.

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 Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen (HMGU) and its integrated Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, is the ideal environment for you!

IBMI is the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem in the Munich science area; 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. 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. IBMI 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.

Your responsibilities

We work at the interface of technology and medicine, innovating imaging technologies based on optical and acoustic contrast that can be applied in basic biological 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 and system development, join our team and help us gain as many biomedical relevant insights as possible from our imaging studies. Our goal is to optimize existing and develop new imaging platforms, as well as to explore new clinical applications that could benefit from our imaging technologies. This is your opportunity to contribute to a medical imaging revolution!
