Image Data Analyst

Beckman Institute/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, United States
Employer Description

The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is a department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign dedicated to interdisciplinary research.  Current research at Beckman involves the areas of nanoscale structures and processes, biological intelligence, imaging science and human-computer interaction.  Researchers in these areas work across traditional academic boundaries in scientific projects that can lead to the development of real-world applications in medicine, industry, electronics, and human health across the lifespan.

Job Description

The GlaxoSmithKline Center for Optical Molecular Imaging at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology seeks a bright, energetic, and motivated candidate to fill a vacancy for a full-time Image Data Analyst. The purpose of this position is to lead the analysis of image data from translational optical biomedical imaging systems. The successful candidate will need a solid and broad understanding of image analysis software as well as software development including high-level user interface requirements in a Windows environment, data file structure design, experience with data acquisition and control interfacing, high-volume real-time data management and storage, and knowledge of DSP- and GPU-based programming. The candidate will work closely with research personnel and physicians, and will interface directly with industry partners and collaborators at GlaxoSmithKline.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Evaluate current software systems and algorithms, software requirements definition, design, and testing, user interfaces, data storage and communication, and implementation of image processing algorithms.
  • Understand and modify the design implementation of platform system software and image analysis algorithms for optical biomedical imaging technologies.
  • Develop automated data screening and processing methods for high through-put data/image analysis.
  • Interact with researchers developing optical imaging hardware and collaborating physicians to define and implement software for data acquisition and control, signal processing, data visualization, and user interface design, as well as other software needs on a Windows or embedded system platform.
  • Collaborate with industry partners for product-specific hardware using digital signal processors (DSPs), graphical processing units (GPUs), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
  • Continue to develop professionally (e.g., member of professional society, attend conferences, publish research results, keep up on latest programming advances).
  • Work closely with research personnel and physicians, and interface directly with industry partners and collaborators at GlaxoSmithKline.


The Image Data Analyst is a full-time, benefits-eligible Academic Professional position. Salary is commensurate with skills and experience. In order to ensure full consideration, applications must be received by March 1, 2019. Applicants may be interviewed before the closing date; however, no hiring decision will be made until after that date. The expected start is as soon as possible after the closing date.
