Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
Saint Louis, MO, USA
The laboratory of Dr. Christopher Topp at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center is a plant root phenomics lab, innovating uses of 3D imaging modalities to investigate roots and their environment. We are seeking someone interested in plant biology and image analysis to help process and measure digitized plant samples using both external and internal analysis tools.
This involves maintaining a robust computational infrastructureincluding dedicated workstations, storage and processing servers, virtual machines, internal code bases, third-party software licenses, VR systems, cloud storage, databases, resource provisioning, development environments, and data management. This plays a key role in cutting-edge research and analytics to solve problems in agricultural sustainability. The role allows for creativity and autonomy in the design and development of tools and procedures. The successful candidate will be organized, independent, creative, have strong communication skills, desire to learn, and work with outstanding collaborative capability.
