Senior Experimental Officer (Bioimaging / Image Analysis) The University of Manchester, UK
The University of Manchester Bioimaging Core Facility is recruiting an image processing/analysis Senior Experimental Officer. This position is initially for 2 years, but with a view to becoming a permanent position. Manchester is a great place to live and work and you’ll be part of a team supporting over 20 microscope systems and 200 PIs. We run a mix of commercial, open source and bespoke software and the successful candidate would be responsible for developing, applying and teaching these tools to the Facility users. You don’t need to be from an academic background, we’d be very keen to recruit someone currently working within the commercial side of image analysis and a PhD is not essential – we’re looking for the right person not the right qualifications.
Due to the demand for advanced image processing and data analysis, a new position has been created to support the users of the Bioimaging Facility in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.
You will work as part of the Bioimaging team, led by Dr Peter March, but you will be responsible for developing the image processing capabilities of the Facility. Combining both commercial packages and your own bespoke scripted solutions you will provide analysis pipelines to support users who have acquired large multi-dimensional datasets using the Bioimaging Facility microscopes. You will have multiple projects to manage simultaneously and so excellent project management skills are also required.
You will have completed a PhD in science, mathematics, computer science or a relevant discipline, or equivalent experience. A knowledge of cell biology is not essential, but you must have proven experience in developing analysis pipelines and the ability to write custom scripts. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are also required.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CVs or applications from Recruitment Agencies.
