Due to the demand for advanced image processing and data analysis, a new position has been created to support the users of the Bioimaging Facility in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. 

You will work as part of the Bioimaging team, led by Dr Peter March, but you will be responsible for developing the image processing capabilities of the Facility. Combining both commercial packages and your own bespoke scripted solutions you will provide analysis pipelines to support users who have acquired large multi-dimensional datasets using the Bioimaging Facility microscopes. You will have multiple projects to manage simultaneously and so excellent project management skills are also required. 

You will have completed a PhD in science, mathematics, computer science or a relevant discipline, or equivalent experience. A knowledge of cell biology is not essential, but you must have proven experience in developing analysis pipelines and the ability to write custom scripts. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are also required.
