Dear all

the University of Minnesota Informatics Institute (UMII)
<https://research.umn.edu/units/umii> seeks a skilled, staff scientist to
serve the MR Neuroimaging research community at the University of
Minnesota. The successful candidate is expected to:

   1. carry out consultations with researchers across the University and
   serve in the role of a staff scientist who provides technical assistance
   across multiple research groups
   2. provide technical and analytic support in designing and supporting
   neuroimaging analysis pipelines that will be run on platforms of the
   Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI)
   3. appropriately document work so that researchers are able to prepare
   grants, research papers and reports based on the analysis
   4. simultaneously support different versions of analysis tools that
   might require different libraries and operating system versions
   5. develop new computational environments, such as Docker, for major
   neuroimaging analysis platforms (AFNI, FSL, etc.) in the HPC environment at
   MSI; and
   6. build computational workflows that scale and work across a broad
   range of file system storage.

The successful candidate will join a growing group of imaging analysts in
the University of Minnesota Informatics Institute. The Imaging Informatics
Manager at the University of Minnesota Informatics Institute will serve as
the supervisor. On a daily basis, the analyst will work closely with MR
neuroimaging researchers, and staff at the Minnesota Supercomputing
