Job Description

The Department of Radiology at Stanford University is seeking a Software Developer to join its Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford (IBIIS) section. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford's mission is to educate future leaders and to promote interdisciplinary, world-class research. IBIIS contains several research labs that work together on various projects that use computational methods to leverage the information in radiology images to enable biomedical discovery and to guide physicians in personalized care. Our goal is to make the content in images computable and to electronically correlate images with other clinical data such as pathology and molecular data.

The Software Developer will be part of a team developing a cutting-edge open-source web-based software to extract image features from biomedical images as part of a large NIH-funded project. This exciting work will become part of a national infrastructure supporting biomedical research and allowing the medical research community to transform medical care by discovering highly specific indicators of disease in medical images.

The successful candidate will thrive in a stimulating collaborative academic research environment working with academic collaborators and users to understand the task requirements and to design, develop, and document the program's features, maintaining the application, and providing limited technical support for the software.
