Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

Our group does research on precision cancer medicine with the aim of optimizing treatments for individual cancer patients based on molecular profiling and functional drug testing. Our goal is to develop a systems biology framework to match targeted therapies and drug combinations using omics- profiling and drug testing.

Your mission

Your mission is to enable discoveries from our image-based data collected in high content high throughput microscopy experiments to understand the cellular impact of drug response and toxicity. Your tasks will include assisting our researchers in image analysis, including building and maintaining analytical pipelines for machine learning approaches and visualizing data. You will be expected to communicate and present your results clearly in English.

Your profile

You hold an MSc in a relevant field, such as bioinformatics, biotechnology or related field. You have previous experience on image analysis of cells, specifically on high throughput microscopy or digital pathology and familiarity with implementing machine learning approaches, including deep learning. You are able to take instructions but also work independently to carry out analysis on your own. You are fluent English language and are eager to work in a cross disciplinary and international team.
