Essential qualifications include:
Intermediate/advanced knowledge of Python programming. Previous experience in developing libraries for image analysis, documentation, and maintenance of repositories.
The selected candidates will join the project "PhasorPy: Python library for phasor analysis of FLIM & spectral imaging," funded by the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative under its Essential Open Source Software for Science (EOSS-5) program.
Their responsibilities will include:
Completing assigned tasks in developing code for various image analysis routines using phasor plots on FLIM and spectral images.
Participating in UBA training and courses.
