Are you passionate about science, full of ideas and innovative potential that drive change and enjoy working in an international, fast-paced environment? Are you motivated by the societal impact of research and seek an opportunity to play an instrumental part in the development of emerging technologies for biology, healthcare and environmental applications? Then the Chair of Biological Imaging (CBI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and its integrated Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) at the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU), Germany is the ideal environment for you!
CBI is the cornerstone of a rapidly expanding bioengineering ecosystem in the Munich science area; including the Research Center TranslaTUM and the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, which integrate bioengineering with oncology and metabolic disorders, respectively. CBI scientists develop next-generation imaging and sensing methods to measure previously inaccessible properties of living systems, hence, catalyzing breakthroughs in biology, medicine and the environment. Comprising 11 inter-disciplinary laboratories and scientists from more than 25 countries, CBI offers state-of-the-art infrastructure for innovative research and a perfect environment to accelerate your career. Our research aims to shift the paradigm of biological discovery and translation to address major health challenges of our time and develop the medical solutions of tomorrow.
Join our team and be part of our rich and dynamic research culture of enquiry and innovation. CBI researchers come from the top ranks of physics, engineering, chemistry, biomedicine and computer science and our pipeline frequently yields high-impact papers, successful technology spin-offs and commercialization. Our research is regularly featured in major news channels and has received broad recognition including several prestigious awards and considerable research funding from national and international sources.
We now seek a highly qualified and motivated IT administrator (f/m/d) to support our state-of-the-art IT infrastructure.
The successful candidate will be pivotal in administrating, maintaining and further developing our institute’s IT infrastructure. In concert with the data centers of the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich, you will support our scientists and administrative staff in IT matters with your expert knowledge. Biological and medical imaging highly depends on cutting-edge image reconstruction and AI-driven data analysis, requiring state-of-the-art hardware and software solutions. To this end, you will provide support on hardware and software-related matters and maintain our IT hardware and our institute network. Due to the high amount of sensitive data generated by modern imaging techniques, a particular focus will be on secure and efficient storage and accessibility of imaging data. You will also provide your expertise to support our high-performance computing requirements. Furthermore, you will provide technical support for our web presence.
- High motivation, leadership and commitment to excellence
- Excellent bachelor or master degree in Computer Science or a similar field
- Strong background in IT hardware, software maintenance and network administration
- Excellent computer literacy in operating systems and user applications (e.g. office applications, VoIP)
- Experience in administering websites (Typo3, HTML) and social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn)
- Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment
- Excellent command of the English and German language
Preferred skills include:
- Strong expertise in state-of-the-art data storage solutions and high-performance computing
- Programming and maintenance skills (e.g. Matlab, C/C++, LabVIEW)
- Experience in image processing and algorithm development
We offer you the unique chance to make a difference in future healthcare. At CBI, we strongly believe in scientific excellence and innovation. This is your opportunity to be part of and to advance your career in a world-leading research institute, where bioengineering principles meet today’s challenges in biology, medicine and environmental health to develop the solutions of tomorrow. CBI provides a highly international, multi-disciplinary environment with excellent opportunities for professional growth. You will be part of a dynamic, professional and highly motivated team within a stimulating environment and a top-notch international research network with world-class partners from academia and industry. We support career development, continued education and life-long learning.

Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications.
PhD student positions
The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is inviting applications from qualified and highly motivated students for PhD student positions in the Lab of Digital and Computational Demography.
MPIDR is one of the leading demographic centers in the world. It is part of the Max Planck Society, a network of 84 institutes that form Germany's premier basic-research organization. Max Planck Institutes have an established record of world-class, foundational research in the sciences, technology, social sciences and the humanities. They offer a unique environment that combines the best aspects of an academic setting and a research laboratory.
The Lab of Digital and Computational Demography, headed by MPIDR Director Emilio Zagheni, is looking for candidates with a background in Demography, Statistics, Data Science, Computer Science/Informatics, Applied Mathematics, Economics, Sociology, Geography, Public Health, or related disciplines.
Applicants must hold a master’s degree or equivalent (as a prerequisite the next intended academic degree must be a doctoral degree). The successful candidates are expected to conduct cutting-edge research that produces methodological advances in the field of Digital and Computational Demography and/or and addresses relevant questions in the following key substantive areas of demography:
Migration and mobility
Population aging and generational processes
Social and environmental forces and population dynamics
For more information about the Lab of Digital and Computational Demography, see: https://www.demogr.mpg.de/go/lab-dcd
This PhD studentship offers an excellent opportunity for motivated students to work with a highly international team of researchers at different levels of seniority, and to take advantage of the interdisciplinary intellectual environment at MPIDR, as well as substantial financial support for travel, research training and data acquisition.
Admitted students will be expected to take part in the International Max Planck Research School on Population, Health and Data Science (IMPRS-PHDS), a training initiative hosted at MPIDR that supports exchange within a network of universities in Europe and the US. The research school offers a core training program in Rostock, extensive networking opportunities across partner sites, and high-quality supervision from at least two mentors from different institutions.
