#1 of 4University of Michigan | Ann Arbor | Full-time | Onsite
This may be the only "Who's Hiring?" posting this month (possibly ever?) that offers the opportunity to work directly with brain surgeons in an operating room. The Neurosurgery Department at the University of Michigan is hiring for a unique position in a lab developing tools to distinguish cancerous tissue during surgery. The HR-sanitized posting of the position is here:
...but we are really looking for someone with a software passion who wants to gain experience in a biomedical environment, perhaps as a pathway to graduate studies or medical school. A C++ background would be ideal, but any numerical computing (Python/NumPy, MATLAB, R, Julia) or functional (Ocaml, Haskell, Scala, Clojure/Incanter, any Lisp...) programming experience is a plus. Experience developing in any of OpenCV, ITK, VTK, Point Cloud Library, or ImageJ would also be a plus as the position will include microscopy, image analysis, and surgical navigation (look up "BrainLab" or "Medtronic StealthStation" to see what this looks like). At least initially, it will also require some hands-on wet-lab work (training will be provided -- the listed lab experience is negotiable). Above all, we are looking for intense curiosity and a willingness to get your hands dirty with software, hardware, and wetware.
I am the lab PI, and I was referred to this board by a friend who said he frequently sees HN posts asking about getting in to the biomedical field with a CS background. This job provides such an opportunity. We are a small, young, and ambitious clinical-translational lab with an extremely productive (multiple publications in a Science journal) collaboration with one of the top spectroscopy groups in the world. Do note that this is an academic lab position, so we can't offer anywhere near Bay Area salaries. (but Ann Arbor's QoL/CoL ratio is absolutely fantastic!)
