Job Opportunity: Project Scientist in Image Data Analytics and Intelligent Systems

(National Center for Interventional Biophotonic Technologies and Biophotonics Lab) – Marcu Lab

The Department of Biomedical Engineering invites applications from qualified candidates for one or more Assistant Project Scientist positions in the laboratory of Professor Laura Marcu.

The position will focus on novel optical spectroscopy and imaging techniques for current and future pre-clinical and clinical applications of fluorescence lifetime technologies.

The Project Scientist makes significant and creative contributions to research in their academic discipline. The appointee possesses the subject matter, expertise and the creative energy necessary to function at a high level of competence. The appointee will participate in activities to increase, improve, or upgrade competency. Appointees with Project (e.g., Scientist) titles may engage in University and public service. They do not have teaching responsibilities. Although the Project Scientist is expected to work independently under the general guidance of an academic member with an independent research program (i.e., Professor, Professional Researcher, Specialist in Cooperative Extension, etc), they are not required to develop an independent research program or reputation. They will carry out research or creative programs with supervision by an individual in an academic title that carries with it automatic Principal Investigator status. The Project Scientist does not usually serve as a Principal Investigator but may do so by exception.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering, or related field.  Applicants should have experience with software development (python, databases/SQL, matlab, etc) on Linux and Windows OS and experience working with DICOM data and medical imaging.

Review position and apply

Deadline for full consideration is February 23, 2024, although applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
