Department: 8.1: Biomedizinische Magnetresonanz
Location: Berlin

Job Description:

The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science.

In Department 8.1 “Biomedical Magnetic Resonance” of Division 8, we are looking for

PhD students or postdocs

to join us as soon as possible. The positions are available on the basis of a 3-year fixed-term contract. Salary will be in accordance with remuneration group E13 TVöD Bund (85 % for PhD students, 100 % for postdocs). You will be employed at our Berlin site, located in the center of Berlin.

Department 8.1 carries out research and development work in the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We are operating a 3-tesla whole-body scanner which is installed on site and we are a partner of the Berlin Ultrahigh Field Facility (BUFF) providing us access to a 7-tesla whole-body scanner.

Your tasks:

Following research projects are to be processed:

  • MR guided radiation therapy (P1): development of a robust system for detection and tracking of moving organs by combining MRI with independent, external information on the organ position, e.g. from ultra-wideband radar signals.
  • Ultrahigh field body imaging (P2): development of dedicated RF pulses for 7-tesla cardiac and liver imaging and safety assessment using numerical simulations.

Your profile:

  • You have a postgraduate qualification (Master’s or equivalent) in physics, mathematics, electrical engineering or in a comparable field of engineering/natural sciences.
  • You have excellent programming skills (Python, Matlab, C/C++).
  • Basic understanding of MRI is desirable for PhD students and a prerequisite for postdocs.
  • You have excellent communication skills and are a team player.
  • You have a good command of spoken and written English and experience with writing scientific texts.
  • You are ready and able to push the research activities in an interdisciplinary team with enthusiasm and commitment.
  • You are willing to travel within Germany as well as abroad for business purposes.
