Department: Neuroanatomy

Research Associate III – Neuroanatomy


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 the integration of experiments, modeling, and theory.

As a member of the Neuroanatomy team, this research associate (RA) will perform rodent surgeries and wet-lab experiments related to elucidating cell-type-specific circuitry in the brain. The ideal candidate will have neuroanatomy, rodent neurosurgery, histology, and microscopy experience. The RA will also be responsible for analyzing neuroanatomical data, generating figures, and presenting results regularly in team, department, and stakeholder meetings.

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.
