Image Analysis Investigator, Morgridge Institute for Research and the University of Wisconsin, USA


Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to make you aware of an Image Analysis Investigator position available jointly between the Morgridge Institute for Research and the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  This position is part of a major campus cryo-EM expansion, comprising new faculty hires in experimental and computational cryo-EM, and a facility to house four new cryo-microscopes including Thermo Fisher’s 300 kV Titan Krios.

Candidates should have a PhD and productive track record in computer sciences, math, physics, statistics, computational biology or another relevant area, demonstrated ability to work in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment, and deep motivation to advance image analysis to match recent cryo-EM developments. Examples of relevant approaches include but are not limited to image analysis, machine learning, computer vision, and data visualization. Current analytical challenges in cryo-EM include, e.g., particle heterogeneity, automated atomic modeling, molecular dynamics simulations, sub-tomogram averaging, object recognition and automated tomogram segmentation.

We’re currently seeking applications and would appreciate any referrals you have.  If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about the role, I’m happy to answer any questions.  Details on the position, including the application process, can be found at morgridge.org/job-posting/investigator-cryo-em/

Thank you!

Jan
