The position forms part of a project whose aim is to understand the great diversity of cell types present in cortex and their roles in cortical circuits and in the resulting computations.
The successful candidate will develop computational methods to process large amounts of data arising from experiments combining in vivo two-photon calcium imaging, RNA sequencing and targeted optogenetic stimulation.
The data basically consists of images, videos and high dimensional gene expression vectors.
- PhD in a discipline relevant to the project
- Background in computational neuroscience, theoretical physics, computer science, mathematics, or engineering
- Experience in digital image processing, machine learning and neural network modelling is highly recommended
