Postdoctoral fellow in clinical optoacoustic imaging in diabetes and its complications (f/m/d)

Chair of Biological Imaging

12.01.2023, Wissenschaftliches Personal

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.

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 unit, which provide bioengineering solutions to urgent societal needs. 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 an ideal environment to accelerate your career.

The mission:

Optoacoustics, in particular multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT) and raster-scan optoacous-tic mesoscopy (RSOM), enable label-free imaging of oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin as intrinsic tissue biomarkers to resolve oxygen saturation and utilization as metabolic/functional indicators. The successful candidate will be instrumental in re-designing the MSOT/RSOM analysis framework, adapting it to clinical studies of diabetes within a funded HORIZON 2020 project (OPTOMICS) and validating it for soft tissue imaging against established gold-standard imaging techniques. Given the prevalence of diabetes and metabolic 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 TUM’s University Hospital ‘rechts der Isar’, giving you excellent opportunities for scientific interaction and professional growth.

Your profile:

The successful applicant must have the following:

• Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related discipline.
• Excellent track record of research achievements and publications in top-ranked journals.
• Strong background in biostatistics and biomedical signal/image analysis and in applying imag-ing/sensing techniques to study tissue processes.
• Strong motivation, scientific curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence.
• Hands-on experience in clinical measurements and preclinical/clinical optoacoustics and programming skills in R, MATLAB, and Python are considered an advantage.
• Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment.
• Excellent command of the English language.

Our offer:

We offer you the unique chance to make a difference in future healthcare. At CBI, we strongly believe in scientific excellence and innovation. This is your opportunity to be part of and to advance your ca-reer in a world-leading research institute, where bioengineering principles meet today’s challenges in biology, medicine, and environmental health to develop the solutions of tomorrow. CBI provides a highly international, multi-disciplinary environment with excellent opportunities for professional growth. You will be part of a dynamic, professional, and highly motivated team within a stimulating environment and gain international exposure through our partners and collaborators across Europe and the world. We support career development, continued education, and life-long learning.

Situated on the foothills of the Alps, Munich is consistently ranked as one of the most vibrant and enjoyable cities in the world, with an exceptionally high quality of life. Greater Munich is also home to several world-class universities and research institutes, creating a truly inspiring intellectual atmosphere.

The successful applicant will initially have a 2-year contract, with the possibility of extension. Salary will commensurate with work experience and seniority (TV-L E13). To promote diversity, we welcome applications from talented people regardless of gender, cultural background, nationality, ethnicity, sexual identity, physical abilities, religion, and age. Qualified applicants with physical disabilities will be given preference.

Your application:

We are looking forward to receiving your comprehensive application including your letter of motiva-tion, CV, and academic transcripts of records preferably in English and in a single PDF file, via email to cbi.recruitment@tum.de. Please indicate “Postdoc in clinical optoacoustic imaging in diabetes and its complications” in the subject line.
