Postdoc – Deep Learning and Pathology

We’re looking for highly motivated postdoctoral candidates with a background in machine learning, pathology, biomedical image analysis, or related fields. The candidate would define or join a deep learning research project compatible with lab directions in neuropathology, dermatopathology, ophthalmic pathology, or by building on ongoing clinical collaborations. These may include molecular pathology, when feasible in the collaboration. Broad themes across these application domains include model interpretability and representation


Python data science expertise required. Desired skills include experience with PyTorch, pandas, OpenCV, and sklearn, or the demonstrated ability to acquire this expertise in a timely manner. Expertise with containers (e.g., NGC, singularity), AI-ops (e.g., CI/CD for ML), rapid caching, performant data formats (e.g., zarr), and/or distributed dataset/model analysis is a plus.

A productive track record with at least one first-author publication is required. We seek a driven individual who will lead her/his research independently and communicate frequently and clearly to the field.

Interested candidates should submit a CV and 3 letters of reference to Reference “postdoc-dnn-pathology-CRA”
