Looking for a scientific programmer with solid background in image processing. Must be fluent in MATLAB, OpenCV + C++, or OpenCV + Python, and comfortable implementing mathematical algorithms. Experience in image registration and feature-based classification is a big plus. This is a part-time (15-25 hours/week) position for at least one month, but it may turn into an ongoing engagement for the right candidate. Smart Systems Consulting in Boston, USA, has a contract with a life sciences company that is developing a revolutionary image-analysis platform. Your role will be to implement image enhancement and analysis algorithms, and build data-handling software utilities to support a small team of physicists and computer vision experts.
