Data Analyst I - Molecular Genetics

Department: Molecular Genetics

Data Analyst I Ė Imaging analysis Ė Brain Science


The mission of the Allen Institute is to unlock the complexities of bioscience and advance our knowledge to improve human health. Using an open science, multi-scale, team-oriented approach, the Allen Institute focuses on accelerating foundational research, developing standards and models, and cultivating new ideas to make a broad, transformational impact on science.

The mission of the Allen Institute for Brain Science is to accelerate the understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease. Using a big science approach, we generate useful public resources, drive technological and analytical advances, and discover fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments, modeling and theory.

The Genetic Tools team within the Molecular Genetics department at the Allen Institute for Brain Science generates high-precision genetic tools to effectively identify, monitor, and manipulate distinct cell types within the mouse brain. These viral and transgenic tools enable the analysis of the structure and function of neural circuits and represent foundational resources for the neuroscience community.

We seek an exceptional individual who will contribute to our newly established Institute pipeline by analyzing whole brain transgene expression and spatial transcriptomics data in mouse and nonhuman primate. This effort is funded by a newly awarded BRAIN UF1 grant from the NIH, which aims to generate an open-access AAV toolbox for Basal Ganglia cell types and circuits.  The candidate will be a B.S. or M.S. graduate in computational biology or a relevant technical discipline and will possess strong computational skills.

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.
