In our Science work, our mission is to support science and technology that will help make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the century. We build open source software tools to accelerate science and generate more accurate and biologically important sources of data, fund scientific research worldwide to advance the frontiers of knowledge, and launched a family of institutes to do research that can’t be done in conventional environments.
To accomplish our mission, we need to develop a dynamic, integrated view of biological systems in health and disease. The Chan Zuckerberg Institute for Advanced Biological Imaging (CZ Imaging Institute) aims to push forward the development and application of new imaging technologies over the next 15 years to obtain deep insights into the architecture of complex biological systems at the molecular level. Researchers will collaboratively develop breakthrough biological imaging systems centered around grand challenges that push the boundaries of what we can see and measure.
As an extension of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s Imaging program, the CZ Imaging Institute will create breakthrough technologies — hardware, software, biological probes, data, and platforms — that will be made available to the scientific community and adopted worldwide through a combination of direct access to the institute, open sharing of advances, and commercial partnerships.
What You'll Do
The Chan Zuckerberg Imaging Institute is seeking an experienced Technology Team Leader, New Algorithms for CryoET, to lead a team made up of engineers, researchers, and software developers to support the development of new algorithms for cryoET.
Establish an independent and innovative research program focused on designing novel algorithms to improving the outcomes and speed of cryoET analysis
Build a research team to develop new algorithms and approaches for cryoET
Design strategies and experiments to investigate the outcomes of new algorithmic approaches to cryoET
Collaborate closely with technical teams at CZII
Collaborate widely with the scientific community
Lead your own team but liaise and collaborate with the technology group leaders and interact with the Institute research groups, visitors and the global community
Write research papers and present findings at scientific conferences
Mentor and train junior researchers in the lab
Keep up-to-date with the latest research in the field and identify new areas of investigation
Understand the challenges and opportunities for the Institute, and prioritize where to focus our efforts in biological research as well as how to best apply novel technology developments to provide the highest impact and results to the scientific community
