Temperature Imaging with Magnetic Nanoparticles

Application Deadline: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

At the Institute of Electrical Measurement Science and Fundamental Electrical Engineering at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, the position of a

Ph. D. Student (75% E13 TV-L)

is vacant. The recruitment process shall be finalized as soon as possible. The contract will continue for 3 years. An upgrade to 100% is possible if the PhD student contributes to the institute’s teaching duties.

Job Description
The Institute of Electrical Measurement Science and Fundamental Electrical Engineering (EMG) is involved in the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology – a new research center at the TU Braunschweig with excellent infrastructure. One of the research topics of the EMG lies in the field of nanomagnetism, ranging from the characterization of properties of magnetic nanoparticles to various applications in the fields of biomedical imaging, biomedicine and bioanalysis. EMG provides the PhD student excellent research environment and great opportunities of collaboration with national/international leading groups in the related fields.

Your research will be part of a DFG project and deals with temperature imaging with magnetic nanoparticles. Temperature imaging utilizing MNPs is a novel noninvasive method which is of great significance to various biomedical and biological applications. The 3D temperature imaging is based on Magnetic Particle Imaging– a novel imaging modality. The research topic is an interdisciplinary study ranging from electrical engineering and physics to biomedical imaging and biomedicine. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with colleagues who work on other Magnetic Particle Imaging projects at the institute.

Job Requirements:

  • Above-average university degree in electrical engineering, physics, or comparable natural science or engineering study course
  • Interest in participation in application oriented and interdisciplinary research projects
  • Ability for autonomous/well-structured work on research topics as well as for team work
  • Basic knowledge on electrical circuit design is mandatory. Knowledge on programming, e.g. LabVIEW and Matlab, is beneficial.
  • Excellent spoken and written English. (German would be desirable but not required)

TU Braunschweig aims for an increase of the percentage of women and therefore explicitely invites women to apply for the position. In case of equal qualification, disabled persons will be preferred. A certificate must be appended.

The advertised position is located in the group of Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Meinhard Schilling.
