Cha­rité-Uni­ver­si­täts­me­di­zin Ber­lin - Ima­ging, Sim­u­la­tion & Stim­u­la­tion Lab

The Ima­ging, Sim­u­la­tion & Stim­u­la­tion Labor­at­ory headed by Prof. Kay Raum is an inde­pend­ent and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team of phys­i­cists, engin­eers, bio­chem­ists work­ing at two cam­pus sites (Virchow-Klinikum and Ben­jamin Frank­lin) on the devel­op­ment and clin­ical trans­la­tion of innov­at­ive ultra­sound tech­no­lo­gies for dia­gnosis, tis­sue engin­eer­ing and treat­ment of mus­cu­lo­skeletal dis­eases.

PostDoc & PhD pos­i­tions in quant­it­at­ive bone ultra­sound ima­ging


Devel­op­ment, clin­ical val­id­a­tion & trans­la­tion of novel quant­it­at­ive bone ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies towards a med­ical product

Working field:

The Ima­ging, Sim­u­la­tion, & Stim­u­la­tion Lab at Char­ité-Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin is open­ing PostDoc and PhD pos­i­tion aim­ing at the clin­ical trans­la­tion and val­id­a­tion of a novel and unique ultra­sound tech­no­logy to assess the bone health status non-invas­ively and without ion­iz­ing radi­ation. We tar­get the major mus­cu­lo­skeletal dis­eases of our age­ing soci­ety, i.e., osteo­porosis, but also aim at improv­ing dia­gnostic pos­sib­il­it­ies in pedi­at­ric applic­a­tions.

We are look­ing for can­did­ates with pro­found skills in med­ical tech­no­logy (prefer­ably ultra­sound ima­ging), sig­nal pro­cess­ing, and pro­gram­ming skills (primar­ily Mat­lab/ option­ally C++). to work with a star­tup (por­ous GmbH) and aca­demic and indus­trial part­ners (France, Aus­tria, USA).
Can­did­ates must have
  • a very good degree in phys­ics, engin­eer­ing (or equi­val­ent),
  • very good pro­gram­ming skills (instru­ment­a­tion, data pro­cess­ing),
  • very good Eng­lish (man­dat­ory) and Ger­man (optional) writ­ing and com­mu­nic­a­tion skills. Can­did­ates should be integ­rat­ive, but should be able to work inde­pent in a team

What we offer:

You will work in a young inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team together with med­ical part­ners, a local spin-off star­tup (por­ous GMBH) and inter­na­tional aca­demic and indus­trial part­ners (France, Aus­tria, USA). non state-of-the-art med­ical ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies.
Gradu­ation (PhD, Dr.rer.nat., Dr.Ing) in a struc­tured pro­grammes (BIO­phys­ical Quant­it­at­ive Ima­ging Towards Clin­ical Dia­gnosis,, Ber­lin-Bran­den­burg School for Regen­er­at­ive Ther­apies, or habil­it­a­tion.
We provide both aca­demic and non-aca­demic career per­spect­ives

How to apply:

Please pro­vide in your app­lic­a­tion a detai­led C.V. (includ­ing a pub­lic­a­tion list), study tran­script (for PhD app­li­ca­ti­ons) and a ref­er­ence let­ter (for Post­Doc app­li­ca­ti­ons)
