The Lab of Jerry Chen at Boston University is hiring a Data Scientist to be involved in several multi-year BRAIN Initiative related NIH and NSF funded projects. These projects focus on understanding cortical computation during behavior by combining large-scale population recordings, anatomical reconstructions, and transcriptional profiling as well as developing tools for large-scale and high-speed imaging of neuronal populations. 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:
Analysis of dense electron microscope reconstructions of neuronal connectivity (ie. Connectomics)
Establishing pipeline for image analysis for in situ sequencing of gene expression
Establishing pipeline for automated behavioral training and analysis.
Visualization and analysis of population imaging data across multiple brain areas during behavior.
This person will be jointly involved and mentored by personnel from the Hariri Institutes Software & Application Innovation Lab (SAIL), a center with expertise in cutting-edge computational and data-driven research with tangible and direct impacts on academic research, public service, and industry partners in healthcare, finance, and technology.
BA/BS degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Neuroscience or related technical field.
One to three years of academic or professional experience.
Programming experience in MATLAB is required.
Additional experience in Python, C++, or LABView is preferred.
Extensive background in either computational neuroscience, image analysis, computer vision, or machine learning is preferred.
