Closing date Mar 15, 2024
Description We seek a motivated research intern to join the digital pathology group of the gCS Computational Biology and Translation (CBT) team within Genentech’s Research and Early Development (gRED) organization. Our team develops tissue based image analysis methods to extract disease biology insights, understand a drug’s mechanism of action on histopathology and support translational biomarker research programs for Genentech's oncology pipeline. The successful candidate will work closely with a team of imaging AI scientists, computational biologists and pathologists to develop and implement advanced AI algorithms to identify novel imaging-based biomarkers using digitized H&E and IHC-stained whole slide images.
Key Responsibilities
Design, build and validate state-of-the-art digital pathology based AI models using clinical trial pathology imaging datasets to develop predictive biomarkers in oncology.
Document project progress, effectively summarize and present research findings in internal meetings.
Participate and thrive in an interactive, collaborative, and team-oriented culture.
Program Highlights
Intensive 12-weeks, full time (40 hours per week) paid internship.
Program start dates are in May/June (Summer)
A stipend, based on location, will be provided to help alleviate costs associated with the internship.
Ownership of challenging and impactful business-critical projects.
Work with some of the most talented people in the biotechnology industry.
