Image Analysis Specialist – Mesoscopic Imaging Facility, EMBL Barcelona, Spain

, by sterjung in Jobs

Scientists at EMBL Barcelona explore how tissues and organs function and develop, in health and disease. Alongside cutting-edge research, the site houses a state-of-the-art Mesoscopic Imaging Facility, enabling scientists worldwide to access imaging technologies specifically designed for studying tissues.  The Facility provides commercial and customized imaging solutions that cover the meso-scale “imaging gap” between high-resolution techniques such as confocal microscopy and methods such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that can image entire mammalian organisms, but with limited resolution.

We are looking for an Image Analysis Specialist to join the MIF at the newly established EMBL site in Barcelona. 

Your role

The successful candidate will participate in the development of innovative image processing and analysis techniques that will support the work of the unit.  This will involve, for example, designing and implementing new algorithms for 3D & 4D image reconstruction, image denoising and deconvolution, and image segmentation and analysis.  Additionally, integration of imaging data with other types of large data sets, such as -omics data, is expected to be an important part of the role.  The position will require substantial direct interaction with both EMBL-Barcelona scientists and the larger biomedical imaging community, to understand their projects and image analysis needs.  An important part of the position will also involve training the Facility users, both in the new techniques developed and, at times, more basic operations using existing software. 

Duties (in cooperation with the Facility staff): 

  • Design of novel image processing / analysis methodologies.
  • Implementation of the software required to create image processing / analysis pipelines to support the MIF’s users.
  • Training of the Facility users & staff in image processing / analysis workflows tailored to their needs.
  • Staying up-to-date with the latest developments in image and data analysis methodologies, through participation in image processing conferences and workshops.
  • Collaborating with the other members of the MIF staff to ensure the smooth, efficient functioning of the Facility.
