Postdoctoral fellow in clinical cardio-metabolic imaging using optoacoustics (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 conduction of label-free imaging of cardio-metabolic parameters in animals and humans using multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT).

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:

MSOT enables label-free imaging of oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin as an intrinsic tissue biosensor to resolve oxygen saturation and utilization as a metabolic indicator. Moreover, it images lipid distribution and water. Therefore, it has strong potential to provide dynamic measurements of cardio-metabolic status. The successful candidate will be instrumental in re-designing MSOT and adapting it to cardio-metabolic studies and validate the re-designed system for cardio-metabolic imaging against established gold-standard imaging techniques. Given the prevalence of cardio-metabolic disease 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 a novel DFG-funded research group (iMAGO), giving you excellent opportunities for scientific interaction and professional growth.

Your profile:

The successful applicant must have the following:
• Ph.D. in Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, or a related discipline.
• Excellent track record of research achievements and publications in top-ranked journals.
• Strong background in applying imaging/sensing techniques to study tissue processes and experience in biomedical data analysis.
• Strong motivation, scientific curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence.
• Experience in preclinical/clinical optoacoustics programming skills in MATLAB 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 career 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 motivation, 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 cardio-metabolic imaging using optoacoustics” in the subject line.
