ALLEN INSTITUTE for BRAIN SCIENCE-ASSISTANT INVESTIGATOR
This Assistant Investigator will lead a team in developing a classification effort toward understanding the
organization of cell types in the neocortex, building on
and guiding the use of a set of in-house high-throughput
quantitative single cell phenotyping pipelines applied
to the mouse and human cortex. This multidisciplinary
project requires knowledge of principal data types used
for quantitative single-cell analysis in modern neuroscience, including single cell transcriptomics, electrophysiology, dendritic and axonal morphology and cell
type-specific synaptic connectivity. This investigator will
play a key role in generating a computational framework
for discretizing the cell types of the cortex to create a
cellular ontology, deriving probabilistic multimodal representations and testable hypotheses about the biological relevance of these types, & identifying conserved
and divergent features between mouse and human.
QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. in computational neuroscience, biology, physics, engineering, or related computational discipline Nine or more years of post-PhD
working experience in computational neuroscience with
interest in the cell type problem Experience and technical knowledge of neuroscience, modeling, and machine learning paradigms, with supporting publication
record Exceptional knowledge of quantitative clustering algorithms and/or ontological/phylogenetic
Please apply online at website: www.alleninstitute.
POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP is available to
pursue research supported by NIH grants. Studies will
address the effects of plant products such as resveratrol,
indoles and cannabinoids on inflammation, autoimmunity and cancer. Other projects include studies on the
role of CD44, estrogens and dioxins on immune response. Ph.D. in Immunology is required. Send c.v.
