Project leadership involves working closely with commercial and academic collaborators on a wide range of imaging, scientific computing, informatics, computer vision, software engineering and data management projects.  Our collaborators include the top universities from around the world, national research labs, medical device manufacturers, and oil and gas companies as well as start-up companies that have a great idea and are seeking to use open-source to accelerate it to commercialization.  Eligible applicants must have strong software technology skills as well as project management skills.

We are seeking talented C++ programmers at the BS and MS levels of expertise in computer science.  Experience with Qt, revision control systems, software design patterns, and Kitware's software libraries (e.g., CMake, ITK, VTK, or Slicer) is preferred.  A passion for programming is required!
