Two Research Engineers/Officers (M.E. or M.Sc.)

Date posted: 02 Feb 2018

Date available: 1 May 2018

Two Research Engineers/Officers (M.E. or M.Sc.) position is available on May 01, 2018 at the Computational Bioimage Analysis (CBA) Unit of Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), A*STAR, Singapore.

Novel imaging analysis methods are making it feasible to extract quantitative information from digital images. There are two closely related topics: Computational Bioimage Analysis and Quantitative Imaging Informatics. The former refers to the automatic analysis of acquired biological images (2D, 3D or 4D) using computational solutions and the extraction of different features; the latter relates to processing the features and extracting quantitative information, which will be essential to understanding the biological/medical phenomena and building traceable classification/prediction models. New knowledge, skills, and approaches are urgently required to develop novel, efficient and reliable computational tools for emerging challenges in biological studies. The general question is how to provide timely and suitable solutions for the images/videos acquired in different scientific and industrial applications. Our CBA Unit is dedicated to the development of new solutions in this field. Currently, we are expanding our team and seeking enthusiastic young researchers to join us!
