Engineer/PostDoc in computer science for microscopy at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience (IINS, UMR5297 CNRS / Univ. Bordeaux), Bordeaux
Team: Quantitative Imaging of the Cell
Type of contract: 12 months, renewable, full time
M.S/PhD in a computer science, bioinformatics or biotechnology
Salary: commensurate with experience
We are searching a motivated engineer/postdoc to create and expand on existing software solutions dedicated to biologists’ needs for the acquisition and analysis of High Content Screening (HCS) experiments on super-resolution optical microscopes.
Under the responsibility of the project leader and in close collaboration with the biology and bioinformatics teams, he/she will:
. Develop the software and graphical user interface for the acquisition (screening) and create a database from super-resolution microscopic image analysis (localizations, tracking, …)
. Implement new classification methods and evaluate them on biological data.
. Language: Visual Basic .NET, C/C++. Optional: Python, Matlab, Java, R.
. Database IT, SQL.
. Knowledge of fundamentals of microscopy (Experience with Metamorph is a plus).
. Excellent communication skills, openness, and ability to collaborate in an interdisciplinary environment.
The “Quantitative Imaging of the Cell” team develops novel imaging techniques to better understand the living cell activity at high spatial and temporal resolutions, in a high throughput context. The team works in close collaboration with the biology teams of IINS, the Bordeaux Bioinformatics Center (CBiB) and some industrial partners.
