Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

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 and health­care? Then the Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at the Tech­nical Uni­ver­sity of Munich (TUM) and its integ­rated Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum Muen­chen (HMGU), Ger­many, 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 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 and medi­cine. 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.
The ener­getic rese­arch group for Cel­lu­lar Engin­eer­ing is part of CBI and focu­ses on devel­op­ing genet­ic­ally encod­able molecu­lar labels and sen­sors for innov­at­ive ima­ging sche­mes, pri­mar­ily fluor­es­cence and optoacous­tic ima­ging. We deve­lop labels based on stra­te­gies of pro­tein engin­eer­ing but are also inter­ested in repro­gram­ming whole cells to that effect. The deve­lo­ped molecu­lar tools are employed on the level of sin­gle mam­malian cells as well as whole organ­isms.
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, bio­logy and medi­cine and our pipe­line fre­quently yields high-impact papers, suc­cess­ful tech­no­logy spin-offs and com­mer­cial­iz­a­tion. Our rese­arch is reg­u­larly fea­tured in major news chan­nels and recei­ved broad recog­ni­tion includ­ing sev­eral pres­ti­gi­ous awards and con­sid­er­able rese­arch fund­ing from natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal sources.
We now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated Rese­arch tech­ni­cian in cell engin­eer­ing (f/m/d) to sup­port our rese­arch activ­it­ies.

Rese­arch tech­ni­cian in cell engin­eer­ing (f/m/d)

We are also delighted to recieve app­lic­a­tions from bach­elor and mas­ter stu­dents, who are and will gradu­ated in this field.

Work­ing field:

The can­did­ate will sup­port the rese­arch­ers of the group and pro­vide gen­eral sup­port for the lab regard­ing resour­ces, admin­is­tra­tion and gen­eral lab man­age­ment. In addi­tion, the can­did­ate will have the oppor­tun­ity to run own rese­arch pro­jects in the con­text of pro­tein engin­eer­ing and cell engin­eer­ing.
The major tech­niques used in the lab cover molecu­lar bio­logy (PCR, advan­ced clon­ing, muta­gen­esis), pro­tein bio­chem­istry (puri­fic­a­tions, gel-based ana­lysis), spec­tro­scopy (absorb­ance and fluor­es­cence) and mam­malian cell cul­ture. We also reach out into top­ics of his­to­logy, immuno-fluor­es­cence and ani­mal work (mice).


The suc­cess­ful app­lic­ant must have the fol­low­ing:
  • High motiv­a­tion, curi­os­ity, and com­mit­ment to sci­ence
  • Voca­tio­nal train­ing as a tech­ni­cian with bio­lo­gical or chem­ical back­ground
  • Back­ground in molecu­lar bio­logy, cell bio­logy and/or pro­tein bio­chem­istry
  • Curi­ous and self-dri­ven work­ing eth­ics and will­ing­ness to learn
  • Excel­lent team and com­mu­nic­a­tion skills
  • Enthu­si­asm to work in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and inter­na­tio­nal envir­on­ment
  • Excel­lent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage
  • Inte­rest in spec­tro­scopy and ima­ging meth­ods
  • Inte­rest in pro­tein engin­eer­ing

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 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 EG 6 - 9) 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.

How to ap­ply:

We are look­ing for­ward to receiv­ing your com­pre­hens­ive online app­lic­a­tion includ­ing your let­ter of motiv­a­tion, CV and aca­demic tran­scripts of records pre­fer­ably in Eng­lish via until July 31, 2019. Please indic­ate “Rese­arch tech­ni­cian in cell engin­eer­ing (f/m/d)” in the sub­ject line.
