2 PhD Positions in the area of bioengineering of remote control
systems for molecular processes

You will be involved in our research focused on remote control systems for neuronal processes and next generation molecular contrast agents for non-invasive neuroimaging of brain function. Our research facilities at the University Hospital of Technische Universität München ( and the collaborating Institute for Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI, are equipped with state-of the art imaging systems, including small animal MRI machines with a Hypersense DNP Polarizer, hybrid MRI/PET, PET/CT, Multispectral Optoacoustics, fast functional microscopy, and optogenetics. Our work will help understand and control molecular processed with spatiotemporal precision.
You are
  • a highly motivated scientist (m/f) with
  • an excellent and recent M.Sc./Diploma or doctoral degree in (bio)physics, (bio)engineering, biochemistry, molecular biology or related disciplines
  • a background in protein design and engineering, molecular biology, bioconjugation chemistry, cell and tissue culture
  • an interest in bioengineering of remote control systems (such as optogenetics, pharmacogenetics) to functionally dissociate neuronal circuits
  • the ability to be self-motivated and work with an interdisciplinary team of bioengineers, biochemists and neuroscientists
  • excellent English language and organizational skills
We offer
state-of the art facilities and a creative and intellectually stimulating scientific community
located in Munich, a city with highest quality of life.
You will have the biotechnology opportunity to collaborate on site with excellent international laboratories for instance at MIT or at CALTECH. The positions are initially for three years with
the option of an extension. Remuneration will be paid according to the collective agreement for
civil servants of the federal states (“TVL”).
The University Hospital “Klinikum rechts der Isar” of Technische Universität München strives to increase the proportion of women. Applications from women will therefore be most welcome. We give priority to severely disabled applicants with essentially equal qualifications.
