Scientist I - Analysis of Neurophysiology & Behavior

Department: 2480- Neural Coding
Location: Seattle

Scientist 1 – Analysis of Neurophysiology & Behavior 

We seek a Scientist I to be an essential member of a team investigating cortical circuits mediating visual coding and behavior in the mouse brain. Using our standardized Allen Brain Observatory (http://observatory.brain-map.org/visualcoding), we are generating systematic datasets of neural activity (both 2-photon calcium imaging of genetic cell populations and electrophysiological datasets acquired with Neuropixels probes).

The primary role of this scientist will be to perform computational analysis of large-scale neurophysiological datasets collected in the context of an active behavioral task. Areas of focus include cell type-specific processing, population coding, and functional interactions between areas and layers of the corticothalamic visual system.

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 generate useful public resources, drive technological innovations and discover fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments, modeling and theory.
