Recruiting part-time help for computational bioimaging

Have you ever wished for a deeper understanding of bioImaging and optics? Or that you knew more about programming but hadn’t found time to take formal classes for it? Here’s an offer you can’t resist!

Wolfram Mathematica is a powerful yet simple platform for research as well as teaching. After 30 years of development, Mathematica’s reach has spanned math, science, engineering, finance, linguistics, data science and computational imaging (examples at www.wolfram.com ). In the near future, these capabilities will be further enhanced by an ambitious cloud-computing platform (see www.wolfram.com/mathematica/online for more information). 

For years users have contributed self-learning and exploratory modules to an open- source project using Mathematica (examples of these can be found at demonstrations.wolfram.com). This project has the potential to transform and accelerate learning through accessible computation. 

We are building modules in bioImaging to contribute to this open-source effort, and would like you to be part of the NUS team that transforms teaching with Mathematica. 

Benefits

  • An attractive stipend for your efforts.
  • Become proficient in the Wolfram language.
  • Learn to build powerful graphical user interfaces with minimal programming.
  • Learn automation of computable tasks, advanced algorithms in image segmentation, statistical methods, data science and more.

Job scope

Develop, document and maintain computational and pedagogical documents/modules for bioImaging and optics. Assist with instructions using these modules. 

Pre-requisites

  • Good communication skills, independent.
  • Commit up to 16 hours per week to this project.
  • Full-time graduate student of NUS, preferably at CBIS.
