Opportunity: Image Analysis Postdoctoral Fellow (#75328) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
Submitted by Hannah; posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Submitter BACKGROUND:
As part of the Integrated Bioimaging Initiative and in collaboration with Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland OR, we have an immediate opening for a post-doctoral researcher to work on microscopic imaging, image analysis, and visualization methods to integrate image data from breast cancer-related signaling networks in cells at both electron microscopy (EM) and fluorescence microscopy (FM) spatial scales. The broad project goal is to allow architectural analysis of the nanoscale molecular assemblies that regulate information flow in cells while the postdoc will specifically focus on algorithm development to register information from the different scale and modality microscopies, automatically detect and segment signaling assemblies, detect and segment ultrastructural features, and use advanced visualization techniques to represent the analysis data to biologists on the project. In this multi-disciplinary project, the postdoc will work closely with biologists, chemists working on the labeling methods, microscopy experts from academia and industry, and computational scientists on the analysis methods.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
* Develop and integrate novel algorithms for integrating multi-modality image data.
* Develop novel algorithms for detection/segmentation of features in EM and FM image data.
* Evaluate and deploy visualization methods to represent image analysis results
* Publish scientific papers and present findings at meetings.
* Participate in group meetings and seminars incl. occasional travel to Portland, OR.

REQUIREMENTS:
* PhD degree within the last 3 years in (bio)physics, computer science, or a related technical field
* Strong skills in various image analysis techniques
* Proven track record of independent research and ability to publish
* Excellent written and oral communication
* Proficiency with computer systems incl. Unix/Linux and programming in Java, C/C++, and other relevant languages

PREFERENCES:
* Familiarity with fluorescence and electron microscopy and microscope control software
* Familiarity with image database systems
* Experience with and interest in working in a biology environment

TERMS:
This is a one-year term appointment with the possibility of renewal for up to 3 years based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs.

LOCALE:
Berkeley, CA
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

COMPENSATION:
DOE
