PhD for Microscopy / Imaging in The Context of Microfluidics

Technical University of Munich, Germany is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in acoustics. There is no application deadline for this position.

The mission:

The candidate will be pivotal in developing a next-generation optoacoustic microfluidics based cytometry setup. The setup shall combine Optoacoustic single cell detection with microfluidics based high throughput cell analysis and sorting, thus, allowing to monitor cellular characteristics in high-throughput. The initial application of such a system will be the identification of novel label compounds for optoacoustics. Beyond that such a system can be developed in the direction of clinical application. i.e. assessing blood rheological parameters in cells. Regarding the applications the candidate will work in tight collaboration with a biology oriented member of the team.

Your profile:

The successful applicant must have the following:

- High motivation, curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence

- Master in Physics or Optical Engineering,

- Background in optics or optoacoustics

- Experience in setup building / strong vocation to build a new setup "from scratch"

- Programming capabilities, including Matlab, C/C++ and Labview especially regarding hardware control

- Understanding of basic hardware design principles

- Interest in microfluidics and cytometry

- Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment with the focus on the boundary between hardware engineering and biological application

- Excellent command of the English language

Our offer:

At CBI, we strongly believe in scientific excellence and innovation.
