Research Assistant 1 (Bioinformatics)

We have an immediate opening for a talented, motivated and highly interactive research assistant to participate in the annotation and feature extraction of 3-dimensional (3D) light and electron microscopy (EM) datasets to identify changes in cellular signaling networks that accompany cancer progression and drug resistance. Some design of experiences and procedures will be required. They will participate in research efforts focusing on the use of data generated with cutting-edge high resolution microscopy techniques which explore the complex tumor state found in clinical samples. They will be working closely with biologists, microscopy experts, and computer scientists to identify features of interest within large volume 3D-EM data using both commercially available software and custom built software packages. They will use tools that range from manual feature extraction to automated segmentation to help enable the large-scale image analysis of volume EM data.
