Data curator/scientist for biomedical imaging (f/m/d)

Chair of Biological Imaging

24.04.2023, Wissenschaftliches Personal

We are seeking a highly qualified and motivated Data curator/scientist (f/m/d) to establish, maintain, and manage a database and workflow for our biomedical imaging and sensing data and metadata stream.

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:

Biomedical imaging and sensing generate vast amounts of sensitive data, which need to be transferred, stored, and curated efficiently and in accordance with legal and technical requirements. The successful candidate will work closely with our clinical and computational research groups as well as the data centers of Helmholtz Munich and TUM to establish and manage a new workflow for data transfer, cataloging and storage, standardization, and access. The task requires a strong understanding of technical and legal requirements with respect to handling large amounts of potentially sensitive personal and medical data. Furthermore, you will be responsible for data safety and handling in compliance with national and international regulatory and funding agencies (e.g. EU, DFG, federal and state ministries). You will work closely with CBI’s IT administrator to align our database with CBI’s IT infrastructure. Based on your personal aptitude and time capacity, once the core task has been completed, there will be the opportunity to drive your own research projects as a data scientist within the scope of CBI’s research agenda.

Your profile:

The successful applicant must have the following:

• Bachelor or Master (and possibly a PhD) degree in computational science, biomedical computing, or a related discipline.
• Excellent track record, strong motivation, scientific curiosity, and commitment to excellence.
• Expert knowledge and hands-on experience in handling large scientific datasets, procedures for data handling and protection within relevant legal frameworks (e.g. GDPR).
• Strong background in database establishment and management tools (e.g. MySQL), operating systems (e.g. Linux OS) and languages (e.g. BASH). • Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment.
• Excellent command of English and German.

Our offer:

We offer you the unique chance to make a difference in future healthcare. At IBMI, 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. IBMI 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 E12-13). 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 “Data curator” in the subject line.
