University of British Columbia Jobs – Programmer, Computer Vision Developer, Microscopy

Website The University of British Columbia

Job Description:

A position is open immediately for a programmer to work with our interdisciplinary team of researchers and software developers at the British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA). We are seeking a passionate individual to join a team of biologists, engineers and data scientists currently developing state of the art methods for spatial imaging of RNA species in human cancers at single cell resolution. Studying tumours at the single cell level can reveal biological differences that may not be resolved when studying the tumour as a whole. The imaging methods being developed include the use of molecularly encoded super-resolution microscopy to detect single molecules of RNA in tissue specimens. The successful candidate will develop and support microscopy imaging pipelines and tools integrating super-resolution microscopy, fluidics and camera functions to facilitate sequential imaging of human cancers. The candidate will also work with biologists and data scientists to analyze images and identify RNA species.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Development and maintenance of image analysis pipelines and tools
  • Working with open source computer vision libraries in Python, Matlab, or C++
  • Perform computational analysis of digital image files from the system
  • Assisting in generation and presentation of research results from microscopy system
  • Documentation and training of microscope system to other users
  • Support the development of microscopy systems through quantitative feedback and functional requirements definition
  • Evaluate and develop machine learning techniques (Dimensionality reduction, Clustering, and Classification) and deep networks (CNNs and GCNs) for Image segmentation, Graph analysis, and Image classification

Job Requirements:

  • Undergraduate degree in engineering or computer science, preferred
  • Experience with scientific high performance computing environments and solutions
  • Relevant work/research experience in computer science, signal processing, image processing, and/or optics, preferred
  • Experience in software engineering and design
  • Interdisciplinary teamwork experience
  • Machining and design experience
  • Experience working in an academic research environment
  • Microscopy image processing experience
  • Microscopy engineering experience
  • Expertise in cellular biology and expression analysis
  • Special consideration will be given to those in research areas that involve computer vision or machine learning.
  • Programming in PythonStrong verbal/written communication skills
