Image Analysis Postdoctoral Fellow Req # 75328
- As part of the Integrated Bioimaging Initiative and in collaboration with Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland OR, we have an immediate opening for a post-doctoral researcher to work on microscopic imaging, image analysis, and visualization methods to integrate image data from breast cancer-related signaling networks in cells at both electron microscopy (EM) and fluorescence microscopy (FM) spatial scales. The broad project goal is to allow architectural analysis of the nanoscale molecular assemblies that regulate information flow in cells while the postdoc will specifically focus on algorithm development to register information from the different scale and modality microscopies, automatically detect and segment signaling assemblies, detect and segment ultrastructural features, and use advanced visualization techniques to represent the analysis data to biologists on the project. In this multi-disciplinary project, the postdoc will work closely with biologists, chemists working on the labeling methods, microscopy experts from academia and industry, and computational scientists on the analysis methods.

Berkeley Lab is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer committed to the development of a diverse workforce.
- In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with “excellence.” Eleven scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize and 55 Nobel Laureates either trained here or had significant collaborations with our Laboratory. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation’s highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. As of 2008, there have been 61 Berkeley Lab scientists elected into the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), considered one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. This translates to approximately three-percent of the total NAS membership, an unparalleled record of achievement. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and two of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world.
Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200 acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,000 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2008 was approximately $600 million. Studies estimate the Laboratory’s overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The overall economic impact on the global economy is an estimated $1.4 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a results of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars.
