1.) PhD student – Systems Medicine or (Bio-)Chemistry (f/m/d)
Within the framework of a collaboration with internal partners from the University Hospital of Tübingen and the magnetic resonance company Bruker BioSpin GmbH, we are seeking for a highly motivated PhD student with profound knowledge in biology and chemistry especially for the analysis of small molecules (metabolites) by high-field NMR spectroscopy and chemometrics. The candidate will perform standardized metabolomics SOPs for human urine, blood, cerebrospinal fluid and feces as well as translate part of these SOPs to murine samples and expand the method portfolio to other sample types such as tissue and human fibroblasts.
2.) PhD student - Biomedical Imaging or (Bio-) Chemistry (f/m/d)
The main roles of this post are to study the function of the microenvironment in current cancer therapies, identify relevant metabolic biomarkers in cancer (and neurology), develop and validate new PET/MRI sensors and collaborate closely with researchers from other lead centers towards delivering the goals of the partnerships.
The successful candidate will be expected to have at least one of the following skills: in vivo animal imaging, biophysical analysis or/and wet-lab biochemistry skills. Experience working with cell cultures, small animals and human samples is desirable.
3.) PhD student - Image analysis and algorithm development (f/m/d)
The Werner Siemens Imaging Center is looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated PhD student for image analysis and algorithm development and the automatic analysis of histopathological data. The objective is the development of algorithms to analyze histopathological images, in particular to quantify heterogeneity and detect distinct regions within the tumor. The offered position is part of an International Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Union´s Horizon 2020 Innovation program.
