Summary
The Senior Staff Scientist will support our Imaging Group within Early Clinical Development and Experimental Sciences. The ideal candidate will have a background in translational imaging with a focus on central nervous system (CNS) or ophthalmology (OPH) to development, translation, implementation and quantitative evaluation of novel imaging biomarkers. We need someone who will provide strategic and technical expertise in the design and implementation of imaging as applied to CNS/OPH. We will play a key role in the analysis of large-scale image datasets to inform clinical development plans across therapeutic areas. We work collaboratively with internal research and clinical teams as well as collaborators and contract research organizations to support the qualification of imaging biomarkers and their application to therapeutic development.

Responsibilities
  • Design and implement imaging measures as endpoints for CNS/OPH therapeutic clinical studies
  • Design and implement qualification studies for imaging biomarkers
  • Use large imaging datasets to perform proof-of-concept imaging analysis
  • Supervise image analyses from Regeneron clinical trials and evaluate central lab, CRO, and collaborator performance.
  • Explore novel ways to analyze clinical imaging data.
  • Apply artificial intelligence and machine learning in medical image analysis and supervise/support development of algorithms for clinical image analysis.

This role might be for you if:
  • You are passionate about the use of imaging biomarkers
  • You are fully proficient in the use of clinical/translational imaging datasets (MRI, PET, SPECT, OCT).
  • You have the desire to see the impact on patients
  • You are at ease with an abundance of detail and complexity, yet mindful of the big picture and able to align your efforts within the framework of a broader imaging strategy
  • You have the innate ability to balance multiple projects and initiatives, prioritize them and execute them independently, while excelling at keeping all partners advised and engaged
Minimum Qualifications
To be considered for this opportunity, you must have a minimum of a PhD or MD/PhD in quantitative field (e.g. biomedical engineering, computer science, physics etc). We prefer 4 + years of proven experience performing analysis in clinical/translational imaging datasets (MRI, PET, SPECT, OCT). For CNS experience in quantitative analysis of PET images also is preferred. Additional quantifications we find useful are Mathematical / statistical proficiency; Programming proficiency (e.g. Matlab/C++); Solid understanding of imaging computing infrastructure (e.g. PACS);
