Opening for Medical Image Analysis & Biomedical Software Development Engineer

The Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is seeking a software development engineer with interest and proven knowledge of medical image analysis and the ability to build tools specifically to analyze images.
CCIPD houses three full time faculty members developing new technology in the fields of digital pathology, radiomics, radiogenomics, and image guided interventions. In the past four years, the center has rapidly grown, now boasting over 35 members including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students and post-doctoral researchers. In the past year, the members have received awards amounting to over $10M in federal, state and industry funding. Center members published over 30 peer-reviewed papers and had 10 patents issued in 2019 alone.

The CCIPD offers an intellectually stimulating environment for students, postdocs, and staff to develop and apply image-computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems. The lab members work closely with the clinical collaborators, including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, and medical, and radiation oncologists. The CWRU campus is located in the heart of Cleveland, and is within a 10 minute walk or drive of 4 nationally and internationally renowned medical centers: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. CCIPD researchers also work closely with a number of diagnostic and medical imaging companies on industry sponsored research projects.

The biomedical software development engineer will work with a high degree of independence under limited supervision to apply the principles of software engineering to the design, development, maintenance, testing and evaluation of computer software and to the design, development, and implementation of digital pathology software for both research and clinical applications. Duties include improving operations by conducting systems analysis and determining operational feasibility when developing scientific projects within CCIPD. The biomedical software development engineer will be the lead software developer and work closely with the principal investigator of federal awarded grants to develop software and meet the designated milestones/deadlines outlined in the research plan. The work requires that the software engineer investigate a number of possible variables and often there are no precedents for the choices that must be made. Applicants must have a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering although a Master’s degree in biomedical engineering is preferred. A successful candidate would have expert knowledge of ImageScope, QuPath for Viewing and analyzing pathology images, MATLAB for numerical computational and feature extraction of pathology images, knowledge of machine learning methods and deep learning toolsets and frameworks, and expert knowledge of programming languages including C++, Python, and JAVA for tool development.

In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Case Western Reserve University provides reasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities.
