Computational Biologist - Image Analysis
Company: 10x Genomics Inc
Posted on: January 26, 2023
About the role:
10x Genomics is looking for an image processing expert to join the
Computational Biology group. You will create image analysis methods
to support development of our microscopy-based genomics products.
You will work closely with our assay-development, software, and
compbio teams to create image analysis methods that are robust,
accurate, and computationally efficient.
Individuals applying for this position must be skilled in several
areas of image processing, computer vision, and/or pattern
recognition. It is expected that you will have deep experience with
either image segmentation or image registration.
What you will be doing:
- Collaborate with colleagues to understand often ill-defined
image analysis problems. As an image analysis expert, you will help
your colleagues refine the problem and understand trade-offs such
as full automation versus reproducibility versus development
- You will select from state-of-the-art methods, both old and
new, rapidly implement, test, optimize, and verify those
- You will develop models or simulations to understand, test, and
communicate key trade-offs
- You will help select and develop methods for quantitatively
measuring success of the algorithms that you have
- Finally, you will create high-quality, robust implementations
of production algorithms that will perform well in the hands of
both internal and external customers
To be successful in this role, you will need:
- PhD or MS plus equivalent experience in a quantitative field
(e.g., computer science, bioengineering, electrical engineering,
physics, computational/systems biology or related field)
- Image processing: segmentation, object detection &
classification, feature extraction, and registration - you have a
deep understanding of both historical and cutting-edge methods (not
everything is deep learning) and the ability to choose the right
tool for the job
- General purpose machine learning skills: classification,
fitting & regression, optimization methods
- Ability to quickly develop custom analysis methods and
algorithms and apply them to large data sets
Also, we'd like to see:
- Expert level experience in relevant tooling, e.g.: image
analysis packages such as OpenCV and ITK; ML tools such as Pytorch
and Tensorflow; and compiled programming languages such as C++ or
- Experience with microscopy is a plus
- Individuals applying for this position must be self-starters,
strategic thinkers, action driven, flexible in changing direction
and methods, thrive in a fast paced environment, excel at managing
multiple priorities, succeed in communicating with all levels
within the organization and provide immediate contribution
