MULTIMODAL ASSESSMENT OF MUSCULOSKELETAL TISSUES



The position is open immediately for 24 months with the option for a performance based extension. The salary will be based on German law TV-L.



We are looking for a highly motivated researcher with an own expertise and an interest in an interdisciplinary collaboration in the framework of regional and international research networks. Our research is tightly linked to regenerative medicine and we use multiscale and multimodal engineering methods (e.g. µCT, acoustic and optical microscopy and spectroscopy, numerical simulations) to target specific biological and medical questions (e.g. functional outcome of genetic alterations, optimization of mechanical boundary conditions for fracture healing, noninvasive monitoring of tissue regeneration).

We provide you with the possibility to establish your own team, and to initiate and conduct your projects within the framework of our research priorities independently. Moreover, you can push your own academic career by supporting the education and scientific supervision of PhD students of the DFG international graduate school 203 "Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies".



The applicant will have the opportunity to:

- raise research funds, plan, conduct, and supervise scientific studies independently,

- mentor PhD students,

- support theoretical and practical education at BSRT (PhD level).

The ideal candidate should have:

- an excellent university PhD degree in physics, engineering (or equivalent),

- a profound background in acoustics and elastic theory,

- excellent programming skills (instrumentation, data processing),

- documented experience in scientific working, presentation and publication,

- very good English skills.



In line with the university's policy of equal opportunities, applications from qualified women are particularly encouraged. Handicapped applicants will be preferred in case of the same qualification.

The application together with a detailed C.V. (including a publication list) and a technical reference should be sent to:
