Lehr­stuhl für Bio­lo­gi­sche Bild­ge­bung an der Techi­schen Uni­ver­si­tät Mün­chen

The Chair of Bio­lo­gical Ima­ging (CBI) at the Tech­nical Uni­versity of Munich and the Insti­tute of Bio­lo­gical and Med­ical Ima­ging (IBMI) at the Helm­holtz Zen­trum München in Munich, Ger­many, are an integ­rated, multi-dis­cip­lin­ary research struc­ture and form the corner­stone of a rap­idly expand­ing bioen­gin­eer­ing eco­sys­tem in Munich; 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, IBMI offers state-of-the-art infra­struc­ture for innov­at­ive research and a per­fect envir­on­ment to accel­er­ate your career.
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, chem­istry, engin­eer­ing, and bio­medi­cine and attract 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, CBI pro­motes entre­pren­eur­ship, com­pany spin-off activ­it­ies, and col­lab­or­a­tions with other top aca­demic insti­tu­tions and lead­ing cor­por­a­tions in the photon­ics, phar­ma­ceut­ic­als and health­care sec­tors.
To sup­port our pub­lic­a­tion efforts, pub­lic rela­tions, and fun­drais­ing activ­it­ies, we now seek a highly qual­i­fied and motiv­ated sci­entific writer (f/m/d). This pos­i­tion will be integ­ral to the CBI fun­drais­ing strategy and pub­lic­a­tion pipeline and will work closely with the Chair’s Dir­ector and the IBMI Head of Pro­ject man­age­ment & Com­mu­nic­a­tion as part of the IBMI sci­ence man­age­ment team.
