St. Jude Children's Research Hospital seeks Bioimage Spec

The world-renowned investigators within the Department of Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital seek a Bioimage Informatics Specialist to develop computational approaches to analyze microscopy images at large scales and high throughput. An individual skilled in computer vision, image processing, machine learning, and imagery data mining will design novel algorithms to enable our scientists to understand vital biological processes and make a difference in pediatric cancer research. This is a great opportunity to work closely with highly innovative scientists and contribute to studies aimed at understanding brain development and the pathophysiological basis of brain tumors using break through imaging technologies, including the newly developed Lattice Light Sheet Microscope.

The Bioimage Informatics Specialist will be responsible to:

Perform computational image analysis using extant software packages and custom designed algorithms to quantitate and visualize biologically relevant metrics.

Collaborate with an external software development team in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Imaging, Signals and Machine Learning R&D to design machine-learning based computational approaches to meet needs of rapidly evolving research.

Curate, store, update, and share bioimaging analysis software packages or custom developed algorithms.

Serve as liaison with St. Jude Computational Biology and Information Sciences Departments to facilitate the efforts in these areas.

Train and support user-directed operation of computational tools when necessary.
