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 behavior, genomics, spatial transcriptomics, anatomical reconstructions, and large-scale population recordings. This person will be involved in helping 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 genomic data
Image analysis for in situ sequencing of gene expression (ie. spatial transcriptomics)
Automated behavioral training and video analysis
Analysis of dense electron microscope reconstructions of neuronal connectivity (ie. Connectomics)
BA/BS degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Bioinformatics, Neuroscience or related technical field
One to three years of academic or professional experience
Programming experience in MATLAB, Python, and R is required
Extensive background in either genomic analysis, image analysis, computer vision, or machine learning is preferred
