France-BioImaging is a distributed research infrastructure that works at the crossroads of molecular and cellular biology, microscopy, engineering and computer science. This unique infrastructure brings together major imaging facilities and research teams performing R&D in bioimaging across France.
The DATA project brings together 7 engineers to bring about transformative changes in data management and analysis within the bioimage community. Key outputs expected from this project include the deployment of cloud-based image repositories obtained with high throughput imaging techniques and the development of efficient deep learning workflows feeding from these data.
The engineer will be hosted at the Insitut Pasteur in Paris and will benefit from the direct supervision of leading experts Drs. C. Zimmer (Institut Pasteur) and T. Walter (École des Mines).
