  Job Description

The successful candidate will work closely with internal and external collaborators to identify and validate novel drug targets and further our understanding of the pathobiology in areas of oncology, fibrosis, virology, and inflammation.

  • Developing, customizing and executing high-throughput image analysis workflows and generating data presentations in a timely fashion
  • Conduct high-quality image-based data analysis, and generate detailed reports to support internal decision making
  • Evaluate and implement new computational approaches in digital pathology to support the better understanding of histopathological endpoints
  • Ensure integrity and deadline-driven timely completion of analysis workflows, data package generation, and report submission
Knowledge, Experience, and Skills:
  • Graduate degree (MSc or PhD) in biological science/engineering or in a field related to signal/image processing, pattern recognition, and/or computer vision
  • Programming skills and experience with one or more of CellProfiler, Fiji, Python, OpenCV, HALO, Visiopharm or Mathlab is highly desireable
  • Experience in deep learning and convolutional neural networks and its applications to image processing and computer vision is desireable
  • Experience with whole-slide imaging in support of histopathology data collection and analysis is preferred
  • Specific expertise in predictive modeling using statistical and machine learning methods is a plus
  • Experience in manipulating and analyzing large internal, public and commercial datasets with visualization is a plus
  • Familiarity with cell biology and microscopy is a plus
  • Must have a background in biological or computational sciences or a related quantitative discipline
  • Experience with image analysis software (e.g. Halo, Visiopharm, Matlab, Python) and knowledge of image analysis (e.g. filtering signal channels, object segmentation, feature detection and classification)
  • Experience in scripting languages (e.g. Python, Matlab) and neural network approaches is highly desirable
