Position summary


Data analysis and visualisation is key in microfluidics R&D projects at PNI/Pall. You will be responsible for analysing, organizing, and visualising data to support the development of next generation nanoparticles and next generation nanoparticle manufacturing devices.


This is not a traditional data science position as we are not dealing with “big data”. If you are a generalist capable of working with data from a wide variety of sources including microscopy, electron microscopy, plate-based assays, light scattering, biological assays and transducer readouts you will excel in this position. You will need to assist in the planning of experiments, develop software to parse the data, apply statistics and data science fundamentals to analyse it and create visualisations which clearly communicate results. Based on interest and ability other software tasks such as computational fluid dynamics and programming instrumentation for data collection may be assigned.


Role and responsibilities

  • Data analysis and visualisation.
  • Developing systems to organise and index data.
  • Automating data analysis and visualisation tasks.
  • Based on interest and ability the role may also include:
    • Developing a computational fluid dynamics pipeline
    • Programming to control custom instrumentation used for experiments


Qualifications and experience

  • Bachelor's degree, or 1 or more years of relevant work experience
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal and written) both one-on-one and in a group setting with the ability to organize and present technical summaries of scientific data.
  • The individual must be a team player who thrives in a dynamic environment with multiple tasks and aggressive deadlines.
  • Proven ability to apply critical and analytical thinking.
  • Must be a resourceful, proactive, detail-oriented individual who is able to work with minimum supervision.
  • Experience with some or all of the tools we use is an asset:
    • Python
    • Numpy, scipy and matplotlib
    • OpenCV
    • OpenFOAM
    • git
  • Experience in bioinformatics is an asset.
  • Experience with image processing is an asset.
  • Hands-on experience in a wetlab is an asset.
  • Experience building hardware is an asset.

PNI provides a competitive compensation and benefits package with excellent opportunities for personal growth.
