Postdoctoral position in Computational pathology

The possibility of combining imaging modalities with gene and protein-level data opens new avenues for the development of novel biomarkers or for the identification of image-based surrogate biomarkers for gene/protein signatures. The current methods in computational pathology are, however, still under-developed for fully exploring this domain. We are looking for a strong postdoctoral candidate with a proven research record in biomedical imaging –preferably pathology image analysis – to develop new approaches to computational pathology. The position involves close collaboration with both bioinformaticians and pathologists. RECETOX, one of the major research centres of the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, is focused on the research and education in the interdisciplinary field of Exposomics and Health, with a special emphasis on translational bioinformatics for oncology http://bioinfo.recetox.muni.cz. The Bioinformatics in Exposomics group of RECETOX, consisting of engineers, mathematical biologists, bioinformaticians and statisticians, is responsible for the development of methods in the analysis of data from targeted and non-targeted multi-omics experiments, applied multi-omics data analysis from cancer studies, longitudinal exposome studies, and data analysis for support of state-of-the-art infrastructure laboratories of RECETOX.   Profile of the candidate PhD in biomedical imaging or closely related discipline with a strong background in signal and image processing; At least two journal publications as a first author in the field of biomedical image analysis; Good command of at least two programming languages from Python, C/C++,Fortran, Matlab, Julia; Interest in developing independent research in the field of computational pathology; Good communication skills and team leader qualities;en Proficiency in English.   What do we offer Support for developing an independent research career in the field; A unique collection of multimodal data for digital pathology; Opportunity to work on challenging scientific problems in oncology; An interdisciplinary environment with bioinformaticians, pathologists and oncologists working together; Strong computational infrastructure; Competitive salary and employee benefits (including 6 weeks of paid vacation per year, health insurance, subsidized meal vouchers, etc.); The initial contract for one year with the possibility of extension for three years and towards a permanent position based on the performance.   Application Candidates should submit the application including curriculum vitae; motivation letter; publication record from WoS and/or Scopus; contacts of two persons who might provide references.
