Image Data Scientist

Required Qualifications

  • Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science or equivalent with one or more years of research training
  • Demonstrated ability to apply basic signal processing methods (e.g., noise, Fourier-based processing) or training in signal processing (e.g., course work, workshop)
  • A high degree of accountability and independence
  • Evidence of excellent communication skills in the form of instructional videos, written manuals, etc.
  • Demonstrated ability to work on a number of projects simultaneously

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in at least one microscope modality

  • Experience in another image modality such as neuroimaging
  • Experience working with Citizen Science or crowdsourcing projects

The University of Minnesota Informatics Institute (UMII) seeks to hire a skilled and motivated Image Data Scientist to work on image data, primarily generated at the University Imaging Centers.

While an excellent degree of independence is expected, this position will have the support of a network of analysts within the unit and across Research Computing, with expertise ranging from image analysis, neuroimaging, genomics, AI, and HPC. Furthermore, an established network of collaborators around the world means that the candidate will be able to find mentoring and overcome most of the roadblocks in their way.

Job Duties and Responsibilities

  • Work with researchers across the U of Minnesota system (five campuses) to address existing and emerging needs in the space of Image Data Science.
  • Meet with scientists to understand the needs of their project and create an appropriate plan of action to deliver results in a timely manner, with a focus on reproducible science.
  • Help researchers to map molecular targets by developing image analysis pipelines for data coming from cutting edge developments in image-based -omics systems.
  • Beyond microscopy, an established collaboration with the platform and other Citizen Science researchers at the U of M will provide the opportunity to work on data as varied as ancient manuscripts, wild animals and medical images, aggregating annotations generated by tens of thousands of volunteers around the world for training AI models. To perform the analyses, aside from a dedicated mobile workstation, a wide range of computational resources are available at the University of Minnesota, including powerful cutting-edge AI-capable workstations at the UIC and the vast computational resources available at the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, a sibling unit of UMII within Research Computing.
  • Prepare manuscripts for publication and work with journal editors/reviewers for publication.

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) and UMII endorse a “work with flexibility” approach that offers a welcoming and flexible work environment where everyone is inspired to do their best. Work location options at the University of Minnesota include working fully remote, partially remote, or entirely in the office and are based on the work of the position. Some on-site work may be necessary for certain positions, even those designated as fully remote.

This UMII position has responsibilities that will require on-site work up to 50% of the time, with options for management-approved flexible work arrangements. The office for this staff position is located in the Cancer Cardiovascular Research Building on the Twin Cities, East Bank Campus.

The University of Minnesota Informatics Institute (UMII) fosters and accelerates data-intensive research across the University system in agriculture, arts, design, engineering, environment, health, humanities, and social sciences through informatics services, competitive grants, and consultation. UMII serves as the link to connect the research community to the services related to managing data across the data life cycle.

We offer:

  • Working with image data in an ever-changing landscape of cutting-edge instrumentation. The data will include a wide range of microscopy modalities, including multi-photon confocals, slide scanners, and small-animal imaging among many others.
  • An established history of collaborations around the globe.
  • Integration in national and international networks of image analysts.
  • A highly collaborative research environment.
