Postdoctoral Fellow in Fluorescence Imaging at Technical University of Munich

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoc position in pattern recognition at Technical University of Munich, Germany. This position is open until filled.

We now seek a highly qualified and motivated postdoctoral fellow (f/m) in fluorescence imaging to drive the clinical translation of novel fluorescence molecular imaging systems.

The Mission

We work at the interface of technology and medicine, innovating imaging technologies based on optical and acoustic contrast that can be applied in basic biology research and implemented in the clinic to support non-invasive diagnostics, treatment and management of disease. Our portfolio includes a broad range of techniques, including fluorescence molecular imaging and tomography, optical microscopy, optoacoustic microscopy and tomography, which can generate structural and functional information about healthy and diseased tissue at unprecedented depths inside organisms. Building upon our extensive expertise in developing methods and systems, we are now focusing on the clinical translation of our techniques.

Therefore, if you have expertise in signal and image processing and fluorescence imaging, join our team and help us gain as many biomedical relevant insights as possible from our imaging studies. Our goal is to optimize existing and develop new imaging platforms to conduct clinical studies, as well as to explore new clinical applications that could benefit from our imaging technologies. This is your opportunity to contribute to a medical imaging revolution! The successful candidate will lead advances within an innovative research program that will shift the paradigm in cancer early detection by enhancing current endoscopic performance with highly sensitive and quantitative fluorescence molecular imaging in real time. Methodologies for the analysis of fluorescence and color images will be developed by the successful candidate to enable the delivery of comprehensive information inside the optical theater. Qualifications

The successful applicant must have the following:

- An Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Physics or related discipline.

- Excellent academic records.

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

- High knowledge of image and signal processing, pattern recognition, and data visualization.

- Experience with machine learning techniques and statistics is highly appreciated.

- In-depth programming skills in MATLAB for data analysis. LabVIEW programming, C++ skills, robotics and/or other relevant experimental skills are 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 and medicine 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. 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 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. We offer a competitive salary and benefits depending on work experience and seniority in accordance with the public service wage agreement of the Free State of Bavaria (TV-L E13). As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages applications from women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university's research and teaching strategies. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications.
