TranslaTUM Bioengineering PhD Fellowship 3 years
TranslaTUM is pleased to establish the prestigious Bioengineering Fellowship. Two fellowships will be awarded each year, one for carrying out a doctoral thesis (Ph.D) to students with top academic performance. Successful applicants will be exposed to a highly interdisciplinary and cutting edge environment of modern bioengineering and biology research with focus towards developing novel diagnostic and theranostic sensing and imaging methods applied to oncology. The Fellowship supports additional training and coaching toward an academic, entrepreneurial or industrial career, as chosen by the Fellow. Graduating fellows will be honored by the Technical University of Munich and become part of a TranslaTUM Fellows network, aiming to promote advanced engineering principles into oncology solutions in academia and industry.
Applicants for the TranslaTUM Bioengineering Fellowship should be able to demonstrate a stellar academic track record, high motivation, scientific curiosity and initiative, and commitment to scientific excellence and the integration of engineering and biology principles. Fellowships will be awarded to applicants with a Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science and Applied Sciences background or a biology, biotechnology and medicine background and strong interest to learn and employ advanced technology and engineering principles in cancer research.
The fellowship offers an exciting and challenging international research environment vested in multi-disciplinary principles with the opportunity to actively contribute in developing an emerging hot spot in interdisciplinary research and clinical translation. It is administered by Prof. Ntziachristos’ Chair for Biological Imaging at TUM, who has been awarded with a Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz prize and two ERC awards. We support career development, continuing education and teaching and training opportunities. Remuneration is in line with the current public collective wage agreement of the State of Bavaria (TV-L) and will be commensurate with work experience and seniority. The fellowship provides support for 3 years.
TranslaTUM is located in one of the most attractive and innovative major cities in Germany. Munich is a place of scientific excellence and interaction, hosting several of Germany’s top universities and research institutions in addition to TUM (e.g. Helmholtz Zentrum München, LMU, Max Planck institutes). Situated at the foothills of the Alps, Munich is, furthermore, famous for its high quality of life.
As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages applications from women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications.
The deadline for a full application is 15.09.2016. The application consists of a letter of motivation and complete CV including publications, references, and transcript of study records in a single pdf file and can be in English or German (English preferred). Please submit your application to Ms. Martina Riedl, indicating "TranslaTUM Bioengineering Fellowship 2016” and “PhD” in the subject line.
