PhD Position in Intravascular Fluorescence Imaging

Technical University of Munich, Germany is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in optics. Applications will be evaluated on a continuous basis.

The successful candidate will lead advances within an innovative research program that develops a novel catheter for hybrid fluorescence-ultrasound intravascular imaging. The goal is to shift the paradigm in the detection of multiple atheroma-related pathophysiological parameters, including plaque formation, protease activity, oxidized low-density lipoprotein content, plaque permeability, as well as fibrin deposition on coronary stents. The project is in collaboration with the German Heart Centre Munich and Harvard University and is geared toward the development of miniaturized catheters that will enable multimodal intravascular imaging in vivo. The successful candidate will have the opportunity for training at Harvard University. We expect this project to result in a substantial technology leap in intravascular imaging and will ultimately improve the assessment of plaque rupture risk.

The successful applicant must have the following: - M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Biomedical Engineering or related discipline.

- Excellent academic records.

- Strong motivation, scientific curiosity and commitment to scientific excellence.

- High knowledge of optics, fiber optics, miniaturized systems design and development.

- Previous experience in electronics, transducers, and/or optical sensors.

- In-depth programming skills in MATLAB for data analysis. LabVIEW programming, C++ skills and/or other relevant skills are an advantage.

- Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment.

- Excellent command of the English language.
