The Allen Institute for Brain Science is embarking upon a large-scale experimental and computational effort to study coding in the visual cortex, and its associated satellite structures, in behaving mice. This effort is intended to uncover fundamental principles of brain function and yield publicly shared data, new tools and technologies that will further accelerate progress across the global research community.
To further these efforts, we are seeking a group of exceptional Investigators with experience equivalent to an assistant or associate professor at a first-class research university.
The areas in which we seek to recruit include:
neuroanatomy with light or electron microscopy
cell type specific gene expression profiling
recombinant viruses for gene delivery or anatomical tracing
in vivo calcium imaging and optogenetics
in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology
biophysically accurate neuronal modeling
large scale modeling of the visual system
machine learning applied to neurobiological data
Ph.D. or M.D. in a relevant scientific, engineering, or medical field;
Minimum of 2 years of post-doctoral work;
Strong record of published research;
Commitment to collaborative team science.
