Cernostics is focused on delivering next generation cancer diagnostic and prognostic tests through a unique approach to tissue analysis. Our patented technology is based on a tissue systems biology approach to anatomic pathology. Cernostics's tissue systems biology approach simultaneously evaluates immune, stromal, stem cell and tumor biomarkers on a single tissue slide, while preserving and evaluating tissue structure. Our technology platform, called TissueCypher®, is a digital platform for multi-channel fluorescence whole slide imaging, and includes image reading, image segmentation, biomarker expression and tissue structure evaluation.
We are seeking a full time or consultant software developer with image analysis and imaging informatics experience to work with our team to further develop and scale our technology platform. The position requires close collaboration with a multidisciplinary group of scientists and management of outside consultants. The responsibility of this position is managing specialized work efficiently, with confidence, competence and discipline. The position requires above average attention to details, concern for the exact correctness of work, and strong commitment to tasks completed on time.
