Position Summary: A number of postdoctoral or more senior research positions in computational neuroanatomy are available in the laboratory of Sebastian Seung at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. The postdoctoral researchers will analyze multimodal and multiscale brain images from light and/or electron microscopy. Analysis tools will include image stitching and registration, 3D reconstruction and object detection by convolutional networks, brain atlasing, and social computing. The researchers will use anatomical and molecular information to elucidate mechanisms of brain function. Application domains may include retina, olfactory cortex, and neocortex.See http://bit.ly/EyeWireNature for an example of a recent publication using connectomics to elucidate visual function.These full-time positions have an initial appointment of one year with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding availability. This position is subject to the university's background check policy.Applicants must apply online at http://jobs.princeton.edu (requisition No. 1600158) and include a CV, cover letter or statement of research interests. Also include the names and contact information for at least 2 references.
Essential Qualifications: Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience, Computer Science, or other closely related field; strong quantitative skills; Matlab or Python.
