Dear colleagues,

An exciting opportunity is open at the Allen Institute (Seattle, WA):

Scientist - Neural Data Analysis – Systems Neuroscience

We are seeking a Scientist to be an essential team member in our ongoing efforts to link transcriptomically defined cell types with the types of functional neural activity in vivo. We are generating systematic datasets of neural activity using 2-photon calcium imaging in the mouse cortex, followed up by spatial transcriptomics, in order to better understand cell-type-specific contributions to neural coding and circuit dynamics.

The core responsibility for this position will be the computational analysis of these datasets, including co-registration between the calcium imaging and spatial transcriptomics data, linking these modalities for individual cells. The ideal candidate will have experience with analysis of imaging data, sensory physiology, machine learning, computer vision, and/or spatial transcriptomics. This position sits at the interface of neuroscience and data science, and good coding and analytical skills are a high priority.

The Allen Institute believes that team science significantly benefits from the participation of diverse voices, experiences, and backgrounds. High-quality science can only be produced when it includes different perspectives. We are committed to increasing diversity across every team and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for this role.

Please see details and apply here:

Best regards,


Anton Arkhipov
