Maintain an infrastructure for autonomous image analysis.
Provide on-site support and training.
Successful candidates will have some of the following skills:
Analysis of biological images (applied mathematics or related fields).
Strong experience in software development, at least in Java or C++. Experience with the biological image analysis libraries of the domain is appreciated (ImgLib2, BigDataViewer, ITK).
Strong experience with biological image analysis tools in the field (e.g. Icy, Fiji, …).
Experience working in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects.
Very good communication skills in English, able to work in a team.
Familiarity with image data from biology and microscopy. Experience as a microscopist is a plus.
Candidates are expected to:
hold a degree from an engineering school or a master’s degree in (bio) informatics, (bio) physics, applied mathematics or a related field, followed by a professional experience of at least 3 years in image analysis in research or in support of research,
