Wiss. Employee (m / w / d) with focus on: Filamentous Microorganisms in Bioprocesses: Modeling and Image Processing


21.02.2019,  Scientific staff 

The Chair of Process Systems Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (location Wissenschaftszentrum Weihenstephan, Freising) is looking for a research assistant (m / f / d) with focus on image processing and modeling of filamentous microorganisms in bioprocesses from March / April 2019.



Suitable applicants have good communication skills and great interest in interdisciplinary cooperation with cooperation partners as well as in image analysis and modeling of filamentous microorganisms. An above-average university degree in the subjects of process engineering / chemical engineering, biotechnology, computer-aided engineering or related fields is mandatory. Previous knowledge in mathematical modeling, the numerical solution of partial differential equations and / or in image analysis are advantageous.



Filamentous microorganisms are used in biotechnological processes for the production of antibiotics, organic acids and proteins. The morphology of filamentous microorganisms plays a crucial role in the production process and varies between disperse hyphae, small aggregates and larger pellets. In order to optimize production processes with filamentous microorganisms, a mechanistic modeling approach for their morphological evolution is pursued. For the comprehensive assessment of morphology, the department recently developed a 3D analysis method based on μ-computed tomography images. This should be expanded and improved. The project is being processed as part of a DFG priority program.


We offer

The position is to be filled from March / April 2019 and is temporary; an extension is possible. The opportunity for promotion is given. We offer you a diversified, scientifically shaped workplace with individual responsibility and creative freedom. The payment is made according to qualification to TV-L. Severely handicapped applicants are preferably recruited with otherwise substantially equal qualifications. The TUM aims to increase the proportion of women, and applications from women are therefore expressly welcomed.



We look forward to your informative documents. Please send them by e-mail to svt-jobs@wzw.tum.de.
