PhD Candidate in Optoacoustic Sensor Development at Technical University of Munich

Technical University of Munich, Germany is offering PhD position in artificial intelligence. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

Are you passionate about science, full of ideas and innovative potential that drive change and enjoy working in an international, fast-paced environment? Are you motivated by the societal impact of research and seek an opportunity to play an instrumental part in the development of emerging technologies for biology, healthcare and environmental applications? Then Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany and its integrated the Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at the Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen (HMGU) is the ideal environment for you!

CBI is the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem in the Munich science area; including the Research Center TranslaTUM and the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, which integrate bioengineering with metabolic disorders and oncology, respectively. 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 a perfect environment to accelerate your career. Our research aims to shift the paradigm of biological discovery and translation to address major health challenges of our time and develop the medical solutions of tomorrow.

Join our team and be part of our rich and dynamic research culture of enquiry and innovation. CBI researchers come from the top ranks of physics, engineering, chemistry, biomedicine and computer science and our pipeline frequently yields high-impact papers, successful technology spin-offs and commercialization. Our research is regularly featured in major news channels and has received broad recognition including several prestigious awards and considerable research funding from national and international sources.

The Mission: Multispectral optoacoustic imaging and sensing combine the high contrast of optical excitation with the high resolution and deep penetration of ultrasound. These characteristics give optoacoustic imaging many advantages over other imaging methods for applications in biology, medicine, environmental research and pollution monitoring. As the next step in developing optoacoustic devices for commercialization, we want to miniaturize both the illumination source and ultrasound detector in order to create low-cost, portable products for use in laboratories, clinics, and in the field.

The successful candidate will develop novel miniaturized illumination sources and ultrasound detectors for optoacoustic imaging and combine them with novel signal processing techniques based on artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning as part of her/his PhD project. The development process will give the successful candidate the opportunity to strengthen her/his skills on electronics, lasers, optics, prototyping and 3D printing and computation skills. She/he will be involved with every stage of device design, prototyping and testing, as well as with dissemination of results in the form of publications and, if appropriate, patents.
