In our newly established Collaborative Research Centre 1450 “inSight - Multiscale imaging of organ-specific inflammation” we are looking for a candidate to work on positron emission tomography based techniques to image immune cells in-vivo. The aim is to develop strategies for tracking and quantifying cell populations or even single cells in long-term (days) whole-body PET studies in mice and humans. This should be achieved through novel acquisition protocols, measured and simulated phantom data, use of prior information from MRI and microscopy, and mathematical modelling.

The qualified candidate should have completed a MSc in physics, engineering, computer science or biomedical imaging. Interest in PET and MR imaging and data analysis is mandatory for this position. Experiences with Monte Carlo simulations, phantom development and programming skills (Matlab, C, Python, etc.) are a plus.

We offer an enrolment in a Dr. rer. medic. program and open the possibility of collaboration with physicians, physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and computer scientists in the Collaborative Research Centre 1450. The candidate will work in a young and motivated international and interdisciplinary team with access to state-of-the-art preclinical and clinical PET/MR and PET/CT scanners.

Please send your application including your CV and a letter describing your motivation and the reference code until 25.01.2021 to Personalgewinnung des Universitätsklinikums Münster, Bewerbermanagement, Domagkstraße 5, 48149 Münster or via e-mail to Bewerbung(at)­ukmuenster(dot)­de.

Applications from female candidates are particularly encouraged. In the case of equal qualifications, competence and specific achievements, women will be considered on preferential terms within the framework of the legal possibilities unless reasons specific to an individual male candidate predominate. Handicapped candidates with equal qualifications will be given preference.

The University Hospital of Münster is one of the leading hospitals in Germany. Such a position cannot be achieved by size and medical successes alone. The individual commitment counts above all. We need your commitment so that even with little things we can achieve great things for our patients. There are many possibilities open for you so that you may develop with them.
