This person will be involved in help to analyze experimental data, developing software tools to aid in the data analysis, and helping with data infrastructure and management.

Specific Projects include:

  1.  Analysis of genomic data.
  2.  Image analysis for in situ sequencing of gene expression (ie. spatial transcriptomics)
  3.  Automated behavioral training and video analysis.
  4.  Analysis of dense electron microscope reconstructions of neuronal connectivity (ie. Connectomics).
Required Skills:

  *   BA/BS degree (MS/PhD preferred) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Bioinformatics, Neuroscience or related technical field.
  *   One to three years of academic or professional experience.
