The Data Core project is creating and maintaining a Project Portal to comprehensively map a mouse Brain Atlas. We will be bringing together brain images and single cell data together on a commercial cloud platform to enable interactive collaborations and reference.
In order to understand how brains work, we need to understand their cell type and circuit connectivity. Multiple research groups are now working advance our understanding of brain function. The BRAIN Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN) is a collaborative effort aimed at creating an integrated resource containing knowledge about nervous system architecture in multiple species.
Currently the project is focused on analyzing a large data set of mouse brains (>1000 brains, each with >100Gigavoxels of image data) to obtain a comprehensive circuit map of the whole brain. http://mouse.brainarchitecture.org/homepage/
The role will involve executing towards a The selected individual must have a Ph.D. in the field of neuroscience or a related field, in which neuroscience was their primary focus and a computational or neural anatomy/bio-informatics background. Must have experience with writing and publications. Previous experience with experiments and mouse behavior are desirable but not necessary.
This is a salaried position, with benefits. Compensation will be set DOE. Applicant must be willing to relocate to Cold Spring Harbor Labs in Long Island NY.
Mitra Lab (mitralab.org) is a neuroscience research lab at Cold Spring Harbor Labs on Long Island. The hire we are seeking will be part of a team working on our Brain Architecture Project, which aims to assemble available knowledge about the structure of the nervous system, and present it to the wider scientific community in a very accessible way.
