At St. Jude Children’s Research
Hospital, we know what can be achieved when the brightest scientific minds face
the fewest barriers. That’s why we provide world-class facilities.
State-of-the-art technologies. Extraordinary support. And a collaborative,
bench-to-bedside environment where you can see, firsthand, how your science
translates into survival for the children we serve. Quite simply, at St. Jude, we
give you everything you need to be the force behind the cures.

The world-renowned investigators in the St. Jude Department of
Developmental Neurobiology seek an Image Analysis Core Manager to manage
research and development of computational approaches to analyze microscopy
images at large scales and high throughput.


If you have proven experience in computer vision, image processing,
machine learning, and imagery data mining, then this is a unique opportunity
for you to lead efforts to design novel algorithms that will enable our
scientists to understand vital biological processes and make a difference in
pediatric cancer research.


In this role, you’ll collaborate with some of the world’s
greatest scientific minds and contribute to studies aimed at understanding
brain development and the pathophysiological basis of brain tumors using
breakthrough imaging technologies, including the newly developed Lattice Light
Sheet Microscope.


The Image Analysis Core Manager will be responsible to:


·  Perform computational
image analysis using extant software packages and custom designed algorithms to
visualize and quantitate biologically relevant metrics. Projects include
neuronal progenitor/cancer stem cell biology, cell motility/metastasis,
epigenetics/chromatin organization, cell polarity, and synapse function.

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


Qualifications include:


Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related
field (required)

A minimum of three (3) years of experience in computing or
statistical data analysis that includes programming experience in MATLAB

Experience using Imaris, Amira, ImageJ or Fiji programs and
operating within a Linux system is preferred

Experience with microscopy preferred but not essential. Duties
may include assisting with experimental design or data acquisition if there are
sufficient hands-on experience with microscopy hardware


Ideal candidates will possess:


Awareness of, and commitment to, the St. Jude mission

Natural leadership skills
