Fried­rich-Schil­ler-Uni­ver­si­tät Jena - Insti­tute for Phys­ical Chem­istry

The Insti­tute of Phys­ical Chem­istry is a spec­tro­scopy-ori­ented research insti­tute with a focus on the devel­op­ment, applic­a­tion and the­or­et­ical descrip­tion of innov­at­ive fre­quency-, time- and spa­tially-resolved spec­tro­scopic meth­ods from the UV to the radio wave range.

Doc­toral Researcher
Photonic data sci­ence (m/f/d)


The "Leib­niz Cen­ter for Photon­ics in Infec­tion Research" (LPI) in Jena is an open user cen­ter where photonic solu­tions for dia­gnostics, mon­it­or­ing and exper­i­mental ther­apy in infec­tions are researched and developed into func­tional solu­tions with industry. The LPI was jointly applied for by the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Photonic Tech­no­lo­gies Jena e.V. (Leib­niz-IPHT), the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Nat­ural Product Research and Infec­tion Bio­logy - Hans Knöll Insti­tute (Leib­niz-HKI) as well as the Uni­versity Hos­pital Jena and the Friedrich Schiller Uni­versity Jena under the pat­ron­age of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The PhD stu­dent for photonic data sci­ence researches meth­ods for extract­ing bio­med­ical inform­a­tion from photonic data at LPI.

Working field:

  • Invest­ig­a­tion of data pre-treat­ment and data stand­ard­iz­a­tion via inverse mod­el­ing for dif­fer­ent photonic tech­niques
  • Imple­ment­a­tion and explor­a­tion of adap­ted machine learn­ing tech­niques for spec­tral tech­no­lo­gies and ima­ging meth­ods
  • Invest­ig­a­tion of model inter­pret­a­tion tech­niques and model trans­fer tech­niques / trans­fer learn­ing
  • Research on data fusion tech­niques of dif­fer­ent data


  • Mas­ter's degree in sci­entific, math­em­at­ical or com­puter sci­ence fields
  • Know­ledge of data sci­ence, data sim­u­la­tion, and data
  • Exper­i­ence with pro­gram­ming lan­guages such as Python, R or Mat­lab
  • Good Eng­lish lan­guage skills are a pre­requis­ite
  • Exper­i­ence with photonic data, such as spec­tro­scopic data and optical image data, would be desir­able

What we offer:

  • An excit­ing/var­ied/inter­est­ing field of employ­ment / Autonom­ous work at one of the largest employ­ers in Thuringia / An excit­ing and var­ied scope of activ­it­ies with cre­at­ive free­dom
  • Inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research at the inter­face between bio­logy, medi­cine, optics, and data sci­ence
  • Excel­lent equip­ment and infra­struc­ture
  • An inter­est­ing pos­i­tion at an inter­na­tional level / Par­ti­cip­a­tion in inter­na­tional con­fer­ences
  • A Gradu­ate Academy for doc­toral can­did­ates and postdocs;
  • A fam­ily-friendly work­ing envir­on­ment with a vari­ety of offers for fam­il­ies: Uni­versity Fam­ily Office ‘JUni­Fam­ilie’ and flex­ible child­care (‘JUni­Kinder);
  • Uni­versity health pro­mo­tion and a wide range of uni­versity sports activ­it­ies;
  • Remu­ner­a­tion based on the pro­vi­sions of the Col­lect­ive Agree­ment for the Pub­lic Sec­tor of the Fed­eral States (TV-L) at salary scale 13 — depend­ing on the can­did­ate’s per­sonal qual­i­fic­a­tions—, includ­ing a spe­cial annual pay­ment in accord­ance with the col­lect­ive agree­ment.
