Computational Biologist Summer Intern - Image Analysis

At 10x Genomics, accelerating our understanding of biology is more than a mission for us. It's a commitment. This is the century of biology, and the breakthroughs we make now have the potential to change the world.

We enable scientists to advance their research, allowing them to address scientific questions they didn't even know they could ask. Our tools have enabled fundamental discoveries described in over 1000 peer-reviewed publications across multiple application areas, including cancer, immunology, and neuroscience.

Our teams are empowered and encouraged to follow their passions, pursue new ideas, and perform at their best in an inclusive and dynamic environment. The innovations and discoveries that we enable together will lead to better technologies, better treatments, and a better future.

About The Role

The Computational Biology group at 10x Genomics is looking for an outstanding graduate student intern to work with us in the summer of 2022. This person will develop image processing algorithms to power our next generation of spatially-arrayed genomics products.

Individuals applying for this position should have a strong background in computer vision and algorithms. You have a deep understanding of the theory, implementation, and practical application of various relevant algorithms. You can take an idea, quickly implement it in code, and evaluate its performance. You must be self-starters, strategic thinkers, action driven, and thrive in a fast paced environment.

Key Opportunities
  • Select, implement, test, and optimize image processing methods to extract relevant information from imaging data.
  • Rapidly prototype methods for internal experiments & early R&D
  • Build analytical models or simulations to understand and communicate key trade-offs of imaging system design and data quality.
  • Create high-quality and robust implementations of production algorithms.
Required Skills And Background
  • PhD student in quantitative fields such as computer science, math, physics, statistics, computational biology or similar.
  • Strong skills in image processing (feature extraction, object detection & classification, segmentation, etc.), including both classical algorithmic approaches and deep learning.
  • Strong programming ability in Python or Rust/C/C++
  • Ability to research existing methods from literature, adapt them to the problems at hand, and turn them into well architected code.
  • A combination of mathematical depth with a healthy respect for the imperfections inherent in real-world data.
  • Experience with cell, fluorescence, and/or histology imaging is a plus.
FAQ
  • Does the internship have to be over the summer?
  • Depending on the match between the candidate, the problem(s) and their scope, and other logistics, there is potentially flexibility regarding the time of the year and the duration of the internship. However, we would like the internship to be at least 3 months long, since it is hard to make a significant contribution towards difficult scientific challenges in less time than that.
