Scientist I - Simulation & Analyses of Neural Dynamics

Department: 2290-MAT
Location: Seattle

Our mission at the Allen Institute for Brain Science is to accelerate the understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease. By implementing a team science approach on a large scale, we strive to drive technological innovations and discover fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments and simulation.

  POSITION SUMMARY
We seek to fill a position at the level of Scientist I (SciI) to work on the development of computational representations of single-neurons, analytical and statistical assessment of their dynamical behavior as well as comparison of such dynamics with in vivo experiments. The goal of this effort is to (i) develop faithful single-neuron representations based on existing, very large and standardized experimental data sets; (ii) assess cellular mechanisms at the physiology and morphology level critically contributing to neural response properties; (iii) analyze, visualize and report results. To address these questions, computational efforts will benefit from existing state-of-the-art single-neuron model building, simulation, analyses and visualization capabilities at the Institute (see http://celltypes.brain-map.org/). In addition, this work will occur in parallel with in vitro and in vivo pipeline experiments examining single-neuron excitability and morphology (for example, see http://celltypes.brain-map.org/) and network activity (for example, see http://observatory.brain-map.org/visualcoding).
