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 cam­pus 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

Working field:

The Ima­ging, Sim­u­la­tion, & Stim­u­la­tion Lab at Char­ité-Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin is open­ing PostDoc and PhD pos­i­tions in the frame­work of a DFG pro­ject aim­ing at devel­op­ment, clin­ical trans­la­tion and val­id­a­tion of novel and unique ultra­sound tech­no­lo­gies 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 ultra­sound tech­no­logy (prefer­ably ultra­sound array ima­ging), sig­nal pro­cessing, and pro­gram­ming skills (primar­ily Mat­lab/ option­ally C++). Within the frame­work of the pro­ject you will work tightly with aca­demic part­ners at Sor­bonne Uni­versity ( and North Car­o­lina State Uni­versity (
Candidates must have
  • a very good degree in phys­ics, engin­eer­ing (or equi­val­ent),
  • exper­i­ence in ultra­sound array ima­ging, beam­form­ing, etc.
  • 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 ( and inter­na­tional aca­demic and indus­trial part­ners (France, Aus­tria, USA). You will develop state-of-the-art med­ical ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies.
Gradu­ation (PhD, Dr.rer.nat., Dr.Ing) in struc­tured PhD 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)
