The project they would work on:  

The primary objective is to establish a robust digital pathology analysis pipeline, focusing on the processing of diversely stained imaging data, including H&E, mIF, and IMC. The pipeline will incorporate foundational modules for cell/tissue segmentation and cell phenotyping to extract clinically meaningful insights into tumor  micro - environment such as tumor immune phenotype (TIP) and tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS). The intern's pivotal role in this project involves leveraging our internal repository of multi-modality datasets and independent tool suites. Through this, the candidate will actively engage in the design, optimization, and validation of the pipeline.

What success would look like:

  • Achieve a good understanding of existing methodologies of related frameworks through  summarization, presentation, and internal discussion.
  • Define appropriate target performance metrics both objective (dice, recall rate, etc.) and subjective (visualization, multi-modality overlay)
  • Deliver and deploy working PoCs for TIP and TLS analysis
  • Define, lead, and leverage internal/external annotation effort for initial validation.
  • Effectively communicating results and findings within the organization through internal meetings and presentations.
  • Draft manuscripts to be used for potential internal & external publications.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Must be pursuing a Ph.D. in the domain of Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Computational Pathology or related field
  • Strong background in computer vision, deep learning, and/or machine learning.
  • Strong experience in digital pathology imaging (H&E, mIF and/or MC) analysis and its application in oncology is strongly preferred.
  • Strong implementation experience with high level languages (Python) and frameworks (PyTorch or TensorFlow), data science and familiarity with machine learning libraries (e.g., NumPy, SciPy, pandas, scikit-learn, Cell profiler, PathML, ilastik, DeepCell etc.).
  • Excellent verbal and written communication and presentation skills.
  • Able to work and collaborate with diverse teams (imaging and biomarkers)
  • Familiarity with or willingness to learn best practices for code development and sharing.
