Max Planck Insti­tute of Micro­struc­ture Phys­ics - Depart­ment of Nan­o­photon­ics, Integ­ra­tion, and Neural Tech­no­logy

The Max Planck Insti­tute of Micro­struc­ture Phys­ics, Halle, Ger­many, Depart­ment of Nan­o­photon­ics, Integ­ra­tion, and Neural Tech­no­logy is ini­ti­at­ing research pro­grams in devices and microsys­tems for future com­put­ing and brain activ­ity map­ping tech­no­lo­gies. We are launch­ing pro­grams in integ­rated photon­ics, AI accel­er­at­ors, implant­able brain probes, mini­ature micro­scopes, and 3D cell cul­tures. Our research crosses many bound­ar­ies, so our team mem­bers must have an open mind and a strong tech­nical found­a­tion that allow them to answer to new chal­lenges.

We are recruit­ing for mul­tiple pos­i­tions with vari­ous skill and edu­ca­tion require­ments. Our depart­ment has a mix of Ph.D. stu­dents, postdocs, sci­ent­ists, and staff from around the world. The work­ing lan­guage in the Insti­tute is Eng­lish. We are a hard­work­ing and sup­port­ive team.

The Max Planck Soci­ety aims to employ more per­sons with dis­ab­il­it­ies and increase the num­ber of women in those areas where they are under­rep­res­en­ted; thus, applic­a­tions from per­sons with dis­ab­il­it­ies and women are encour­aged.

Sci­ent­ist, Postdoc­toral Fel­low, or Research Staff Mem­ber in Com­pu­ta­tional Ima­ging and Machine Learn­ing

Work­ing field:

We are recruit­ing at least one Sci­ent­ist, Postdoc­toral Fel­low, or Research Staff Mem­ber with exper­i­ence in com­pu­ta­tional ima­ging and machine learn­ing. We are launch­ing a pro­gram to com­bine com­pu­ta­tional ima­ging with integ­rated photonic light sources that can cre­ate illu­min­a­tion pat­terns with unique prop­er­ties. We aim to cre­ate highly com­pact and com­pu­ta­tion­ally effi­cient 3D and deep brain ima­ging sys­tems.


Your tasks
  • Col­lab­or­ate with the team to develop a mini­atur­ized and light­weight micro­scope sys­tem for ima­ging neural activ­ity in deep brain regions
  • Com­bine advances in integ­rated photonic tech­no­lo­gies with com­pu­ta­tional algorithms for rapid, ideally real-time, micro­scopy without lenses
  • Train and work closely with other postdoc­toral fel­lows, Ph.D. and/or Mas­ter’s stu­dents
  • Present research res­ults in inter­na­tional journ­als and con­fer­ences
  • Inter­act with private sec­tor part­ners if neces­sary

Your pro­file
  • M.S. or Ph.D. Degree in com­puter sci­ence, or elec­trical and com­puter engin­eer­ing
  • You are motiv­ated by grand chal­lenges
  • You have a demon­strated track-record in the fields of com­pu­ta­tional ima­ging, ima­ging through scat­ter­ing media, image recon­struc­tion, and machine learn­ing
  • You excel at inde­pend­ently defin­ing prob­lems and solv­ing them with cre­ativ­ity and resource­ful­ness
  • You are a fast learner and excited to learn about other dis­cip­lines
  • You are an effect­ive team player that excels in a fast-paced, highly dynamic, inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and inter­na­tional envir­on­ment
  • You have excel­lent writ­ten and oral com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish
  • Exper­i­ence or interest in tech­no­logy trans­fer, innov­a­tion, and inter­na­tional part­ner­ships are strong assets

What we of­fer:

  • The oppor­tun­ity to work at the fore­front of sci­entific research with an incred­ible team of highly motiv­ated and smart people
  • Remu­ner­a­tion and social bene­fits accord­ing to TVöD
  • Fixed-term con­tract ini­tially for 2 years, with the poten­tial of exten­sion
  • Poten­tial eli­gib­il­ity to be a Post­gradu­ate Affil­i­ate with the Vec­tor Insti­tute for AI in Toronto
  • Expec­ted start date: Janu­ary 2020; nego­ti­able

How to ap­ply:

Please sub­mit your CV, a brief sum­mary of your research interests and accom­plish­ments (2 pages max.), and the names of two ref­er­ences as a single pdf file to, ref­er­en­cing MPI-Halle-CI-ML. The pos­i­tion will remain open until closed.
