Scientist - Neural Data Analysis

Brain Science

Our mission at the Allen Institute for Brain Science is to accelerate the understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease. Using a big science approach, we generate useful public resources, drive technological and analytical advances, and discover fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments, modeling, and theory.

We are seeking a Scientist I in our ongoing efforts to investigate how the brain extracts and processes information. Using our standardized Allen Brain Observatory pipelines, we are generating systematic datasets of neural activity (primarily using 2-photon calcium imaging) in order to better understand visual coding in the mouse brain.

The core responsibility for this position will be the computational analysis and modeling of these large-scale neurophysiological datasets.

The ideal candidate will have experience with neural data analysis, sensory physiology, and be motivated to work in a team science environment.

This position sits at the interface of neuroscience and data science, and good coding and analytical skills are a high priority.

Work as a team member in close collaboration with experimentalists and other analysts to analyze large-scale neurophysiological activity.

PhD in neuroscience, computational neuroscience, or related discipline required.
