1.) 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.

2.) PhD student - Molecular Medicine or (Bio-) Chemistry (f/m/d)

Metabolomics is among the youngest members in the emerging field of “omics” technologies. It offers great prospects not only for fundamental research but also personalized medicine and therapy design. In this context we are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated
PhD student (f/m/d)who is eager to work in an interdisciplinary environment and to learn and expand state-of-the-art metabolomic techniques in the fields of biomarker discovery for oncology, neurology and rare diseases. The potential candidate should have a profound knowledge in biochemistry and analytical chemistry, ideally with hands-on experience in NMR spectroscopy and related techniques.

3.) PhD student in Biology / Biochemistry / Immunology (f/m/d)

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated candidates, eager to work and evolve in a highly interdisciplinary environment with chemists, biologists, physicists, and physicians. The ideal candidates should hold a diploma or Master degree in Biology, Biochemistry or related fields with a focus on Immunology and/or Oncology, have the desire to excel in imaging sciences and a drive to communicate scientific results in an international environment.

Previous experience with molecular and cell biology techniques (e.g. cell culture, flow cytometry, western blot) is essential. Knowledge of tumor immunology and working with small animals, especially in vivo models of diseases, are considered beneficial.
