Job Opening Image Processing and Visualization of Scientific Data in a Distributed Computing Environment Job Description Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory is seeking an Imaging Technologist / Computer Scientist to participate in the Imaging Technologies Group. The job will involve identify- ing, developing, and implementing techniques for image analysis and the display of data arising from a wide range of scientific imaging applications at the Laboratory. Work will be done in a high performance computing, high-speed networking environment. The goal of the work is to provide reusable tools that permit the exploration of large, complex, and frequently time varying image data sets. These tools must couple closely with the scientific application to permit interac- tive exploration by users, but at the same time have suffi- ciently general and well defined interfaces so that they will provide a foundation for many types of scientific applications. Duties The work will require understanding the scientific data well enough to be able to identify and/or develop appropri- ate techniques for enhancement, analysis, segmentation, and understanding, particularly with respect to the the display of complex 3D scalar fields (e.g. tomography derived data), as well as traditional 2D images. In addition the work will involve the incorporation of graphics visualization tech- niques into working applications. Close cooperation with the scientific community will be necessary in order to ensure the applicability of the work. Requirements The applicant must have experience in a wide range of computing topics including image manipulation, display, enhancement, modeling, and analysis; 3D graphics; distri- buted computing; and window systems. The job requires extensive C, and some Fortran language programming experi- ence. Experience in developing window based applications (preferably using the X window system), is desirable. Work- ing familiarity with all aspects of the Unix environment is required. Experience in developing distributed applications in the BSD Unix environment is desirable. Experience and educational background in mathematics, physics, optics, chemistry, geosciences, or biochemical applications, and video equipment and techniques is desirable. The job requires an interest and experience in designing and imple- menting software systems. An MS degree or PhD in one of the scientific fields mentioned, computer science, or a related discipline, or equivalent experience, is required.
