PhD student / post doc (f/m) for research projects in MR imaging and spectroscopy, Department "Biomedical Magnetic Resonance"
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB)
Braunschweig und Berlin Nationales Metrologieinstitut
The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical
service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science.
For research projects in MR imaging and spectroscopy, Department 8.1 "Biomedical Magnetic Resonance" of Division 8 is looking for
PhD students or post docs
to join us as soon as possible. The positions are available on the basis of a 3-year fixed-term contract. The remuneration will be paid in accordance with
remuneration group 13 TVöD Bund (85 % for PhD students, 100 % for post docs). You will be employed at our Berlin site.
