Data Scientist

University of Rochester
Mechanical Engineering

Applications are invited for a data scientist supporting a large research program studying flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. The data scientist will manage storage and analysis infrastructure, build novel analysis tools, and share data and software publicly. Data will come from MRI imaging, two-photon imaging, and fluid dynamics simulations. The data scientist will streamline workflows, provide organized storage infrastructure, and develop machine-learning algorithms for image analysis. MS or PhD in a data-intensive field is required. Experience with imaging, large data sets, and modern AI methods is key; experience with neuroscience is desirable.

Resources and opportunities for collaboration are excellent. The data scientist will be affiliated with the Goergen Institute for Data Science, make extensive use of the BlueHive computing cluster, and collaborate closely with experimentalists and modelers from five leading teams at four universities. Funds are secure for four years. We offer generous salaries with good benefits.
