Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

The Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at the Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich (TUM) and the Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at Helm­holtz Munich) are an integ­rated, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary research struc­ture and form the corner­stone of a rap­idly expand­ing bioen­gin­eer­ing eco­sys­tem in Munich, Ger­many; includ­ing the Research Cen­ter Trans­laTUM and the Helm­holtz Pion­eer Cam­pus, which integ­rate bioen­gin­eer­ing with onco­logy and meta­bolic dis­orders, 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.
We now seek a tal­en­ted and highly motiv­ated tech­nical assist­ant (f/m/d) in optics, lasers, and photon­ics to join our team and par­ti­cip­ate in the devel­op­ment of highly innov­at­ive optical ima­ging sys­tems.

Tech­nical assist­ant in optics, lasers, and photon­ics (f/m/d)

Working field:

CBI drives ground-break­ing devel­op­ments 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, that can gen­er­ate struc­tural and func­tional inform­a­tion about healthy and dis­eased tis­sue. Build­ing upon our extens­ive expert­ise in devel­op­ing meth­ods and sys­tems, we are now focus­ing on the clin­ical trans­la­tion of our tech­niques.
The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will play a major part in this effort, work­ing closely with sci­ent­ists of all levels within a unique inter­dis­cip­lin­ary envir­on­ment. As the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate, you will:
  • Design and develop optical and optoacous­tic ima­ging sys­tems in close col­lab­or­a­tion with CBI sci­ent­ists
  • Fab­ric­ate mini­atur­ized ima­ging sensors and cath­et­ers
  • Main­tain and oper­ate high-end mul­timodal micro­scopes
  • Oper­ate, main­tain and modify a large spe­ci­men cryo­tome and the attached cam­era sys­tem in close col­lab­or­a­tion with CBI sci­ent­ists
  • Sup­port our labor­at­ory staff and sci­ent­ists on tech­nical aspects of our research
  • Assist with gen­eral labor­at­ory work, invent­ory, etc.


The suc­cess­ful applic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • Voca­tional train­ing, bach­elor or mas­ter degree in optical engin­eer­ing, elec­trical engin­eer­ing or a related dis­cip­line
  • Excel­lent grades and ideally pre­vi­ous job exper­i­ence in a sim­ilar pos­i­tion
  • Exper­i­ence in optics, sensors, lasers, optical fibers
  • Pro­gram­ming skills in MAT­LAB / Lab­view are an advant­age
  • High motiv­a­tion and pro­act­ive atti­tude
  • Flex­ible, inde­pend­ent and solu­tion-ori­ented work­ing style
  • Team player skills and enthu­si­asm to work in a multi-dis­cip­lin­ary, col­lab­or­at­ive envir­on­ment
  • Excel­lent pro­fi­ciency in Eng­lish and Ger­man

What we 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, medi­cine, and envir­on­mental health 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 and gain inter­na­tional expos­ure through our part­ners and col­lab­or­at­ors across Europe and the world. 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. Salary will com­men­sur­ate with train­ing, work exper­i­ence, and seni­or­ity (TV-L E 9-13 of Free State of Bav­aria). To pro­mote diversity, we wel­come applic­a­tions from tal­en­ted people regard­less of gender, cul­tural back­ground, nation­al­ity, eth­ni­city, sexual iden­tity, phys­ical abil­it­ies, reli­gion and age. Qual­i­fied applic­ants with phys­ical dis­ab­il­it­ies will be given pref­er­ence.

How to apply:

We are look­ing for­ward to receiv­ing your com­pre­hens­ive applic­a­tion includ­ing your let­ter of motiv­a­tion, CV and aca­demic tran­scripts of records prefer­ably in Eng­lish and in a single PDF file, via email.
