advances in light and electron microscopy is transforming life
sciences, biomolecular imaging is the next big revolution in biology
after DNA sequencing. For instance, scientists are now able to follow
the fates of individual molecules in a living cell or image the
development of an organism starting from a single fertilised cell.
However, to utilise the full potential of these advances, data generated
by different biological imaging projects need to be collected,
integrated and analysed to extract biologically relevant information.
Appropriate image processing and machine learning methods need to be
developed, customised and applied to these data, alongside with human
European Bioinformatics Institute, a part of the
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL-EBI), in collaboration with
Dundee University and the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure project, is
launching BioImage Archive – a reference database of biological images
of different scales – from molecules to whole organisms. In
collaboration with Dundee University we have recently obtained funding
from the Wellcome Trust to facilitate this development. We are now
looking for a data scientist with experience in machine learning and
As the work on BioImage Archive project will be expanding at EMBL-EBI, the post will offer a personal scientific growth opportunity.
