A full-time expert in image analysis and quantification (Bioinformatician)

Type d’annonce: Proposition – Postes CDD

Description de la proposition:

This expert / logistician should collaborate closely with biomedical researchers, in collaboration with the GIGA-Cell Imaging platform, for experimental planning: optimize their sample preparation procedures and their image acquisition protocols in order to minimize acquisition bias and artefacts and ease reproducible morphometric quantification;
Maximize the use of existing image quantification softwares (including FIJI, Imaris, Cytomine, Image J, …) by coordinating software installation, developing new adapted plug-ins, optimizing the configuration, maintenance;
Maximize the use of high-performance computing and mass storage equipment by developing software communication and user interfaces between imaging instruments (incl. whole-slide scanner, confocal microscopes, high content screening imaging system, lightsheet and epifluorescence microscopes managed by the Cell Imaging GIGA platform), computing infrastructure (grid computing and mass storage), and end-users (biomedical researchers and computer scientists developing algorithms);
Implement image format conversion tools to ease image storage and sharing;
Implement additional quantification software modules to answer specific biomedical questions;
Implement research results (new algorithms) into usable and efficient software modules;
Write protocols and documentation for end-users to describe quantification workflows, pipelines, platforms.
Organize training sessions on basic image analysis principles and software. Organize workshops on advanced topics to foster sharing of knowledge between biomedical experts and computer scientists.
Offer daily imaging data analysis consultation and services for users of the Cell imaging GIGA platform.
Act as an interface between biomedical researchers and computer scientist researchers.
Contribute to the submission of national/international research projects that involve biomedical image quantification.
