Full time
The Imaging Sciences team seeks a creative and collaborative computational image scientist with a strong command of programming and mathematics. We are looking for a hardworking individual who can apply their expertise towards sophisticated biological research across a wide range of therapeutic areas including immuno-oncology, metabolism, immunology, cardiovascular, infectious diseases, and ophthalmology among numerous others.

Our team addresses image processing needs for virtually any imaging modality and application found at Regeneron. In collaboration with biologists, physicians, and other imaging scientists, this role will support development of analytical approaches primarily for microscopy, preclinical MRI, and clinical image data. You will facilitate robust image quantification by drawing upon techniques of classical image analysis as well as machine learning / artificial intelligence (ML/AI). You will also augment our ongoing efforts to support routine usage of commercial image analysis software by non-experts.

- Advising on, developing, and communicating image processing strategies across diverse modalities in preclinical and/or clinical datasets

- Programming software implementations for custom image management and analysis tools, which could entail using APIs from commercial software, Python scripting, RShiny app development, machine learning techniques, and more

- Maintaining internal software repositories and documentation of internally developed image processing pipelines

- Performing quality control of image data and image-derived analysis results

- Producing analytics and data visualizations of image-derived analysis results, which may include simple statistical tests, various types of summary plots, spreadsheet aggregation

- Supporting proficient usage of both commercial and internally developed image analysis tools throughout Regeneron

- Utilizing our project management software to track project development, coordinate requests, and prioritize tasks

- You have outstanding critical thinking, attention to detail, scientific rigor, and strong analytical, problem solving, and troubleshooting skills

- You have the ability to shift focus between multiple projects

- You have shown ability to work independently and collaboratively as part of a larger project

- You have excellent verbal and written communication skills,

- You have a positive demeanor and ability to learn new things

- You have a passion for biology and helping others, and a dedication to share, collaborate, and lift up others

To be considered for this role, you must have a PhD in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or Computer Science. 2+ years Python programming required; experience with dedicated image processing libraries (e.g. Scikit Image, OpenCV, ITK); Experience in additional languages (C++, R, Matlab) a plus. Hands-on experience providing quantitative analysis of 2D and/or 3D biomedical imaging data. Experienced understanding of fundamental principles of image processing (e.g., image filtering, classic segmentation techniques, image registration.) Strong knowledge of mathematics relevant to quantitative image analysis (optimization, regression, statistics, signal processing, cluster analysis, general machine learning, etc.) Hands-on programming experience in deploying deep learning techniques in an image analysis context (e.g. with TensorFlow/Keras/PyTorch/etc.)
