APPLICATIONCLOSINGDATE: December 16th , 2022
Human Technopole (HT) is a new interdisciplinary life science research institute, created and supported by the Italian Government, with the aim of developing innovative strategies to improve human health. HT is composed of five Centers: Computational Biology, Structural Biology, Genomics, Neurogenomics and Health Data Science. The Centers work together to enable interdisciplinary research and to create an open, collaborative environment that will help promote life science research both nationally and internationally.
The Image Analysis Facility at Human Technopole is recruiting a Bioimage Analyst and Research Software Engineer to add to our creative and interdisciplinary research team at the Human Technopole (HT) in Milan, Italy.
The facility will be offering bleeding-edge image analysis services to researchers within HT but is equally dedicated to supporting the wider science landscape in Italy and beyond. Our service portfolio includes technical consultation with users, building and deploying suitable analysis pipelines, quality control, publishing support, visualization and rendering services, as well as the development of new open-source tools. As well as image analysis and software development, we also envision a strong focus on teaching: we aim to enable users to perform an increasing amount of their required analyses by themselves.
The work in the image analysis facility will be tightly coupled to the research conducted in the Jug Group at HT. The Jug Lab is developing novel computer vision and machine learning methods and algorithms for a broad array of image-based biomedical research. We seek an open-minded and motivated personality to help us further our service portfolio and software landscape for bio-image analysis. The offered job naturally comes with the opportunity to visit other members of the community of Bioimage Analysts around the world and will bring you in touch with the latest algorithms, software tools, but also microscopy hardware and technology. The position is full time and based in Milan, Italy. HT offers attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to a leading, internationally competitive, research organization that promotes a collegial and open atmosphere.

- Participate in the scientific life of the Jug lab.
- MSc or higher in Biology, Bioengineering, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, or a related field.
- A strong background in image processing and image analysis.
- English proficiency.
- PhD in Biology, Bioengineering, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, or a related field, or equivalent industry experience (3+ years).
- Background in microscopy or optics.
- Experience with the application of image processing methods on biological datasets, with an emphasis on microscopy.
- Familiarity with at least one established image analysis software (eg. Fiji, ilastik, Cell Profiler, napari, Imaris, Arivis, or a similar tool).
- Knowledge of deep-learning methods.
- Keen interest in finding suitable solutions for our users while working in a young and friendly team.
