We are seeking a computational scientist to the join Data & Computational Sciences (DCS) at the Boston, MA site of Vertex Pharmaceuticals. This individual is expected to lead the image analysis capability of DCS, supporting the analysis (including registration, segmentation, object quantification and visualization) of histopathology, cellular and materials imaging studies. The individual should have experience in applying machine learning methods to different stages of the image analysis pipeline and be able to advise scientists on best practices. In addition, to supporting specific imaging projects, the individual is expected to be the product owner of the DCS image analysis platform that will support rapid development of custom analysis methods, as well as allow bench scientists to manage their own image analysis needs. As product owner the individual is expected to set the vision and work closely with the DCS software development lead and colleagues in Data, Technology and Engineering to develop a scalable, production platform for image analysis. Finally, the individual is also expected to support downstream analyses of quantified images, possibly integrating it with other data sources such as from genomics or small molecule studies. Thus, the ideal candidate will have a strong foundation in image analysis, but also a broad skillset to address data science problems in the life sciences.
