Lehrstuhl für Biologische Bildgebung an der Techischen Universität München
Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) in Munich, Germany, are an integrated, multi-disciplinary research structure focusing on developing optical and optoacoustic imaging and sensing methods to measure previously inaccessible properties of living systems, with the goal of catalyzing breakthroughs in biology and medicine. Comprising 11 laboratories and a multitude of researchers from more than 25 countries, CBI/IBMI offers state-of-the-art infrastructure for innovative research and forms the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem involving the newly founded Munich School of Bioengineering; the Research Center TranslaTUM, which integrates bioengineering and oncology and the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, which integrates bioengineering and metabolic disorders. CBI/IBMI researchers come from the top ranks of early-career and established scientists in physics, chemistry, engineering, and biomedicine, who together create a rich, dynamic culture of enquiry and innovation that attracts significant investment from national and international sources. Our scientists serve in international societies and conferences and are recipients of a multitude of top international and German awards, including the prestigious Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz prize and several ERC awards. In addition to scientific excellence, IBMI promotes entrepreneurship and company spin-off activities, as well as collaborations with other top academic institutions and leading corporations in the photonics, pharmaceuticals and healthcare sectors.
As part of the STARSTEM innovation program recently funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 scheme, we are now seeking a highly qualified and motivated postdoctoral fellow (f/m) to drive the utility of multimodal optoacoustic imaging and MRI for stem cell therapy.
