The Synthetic Neurobiology research group is developing cutting-edge methods for mapping the wiring and molecular composition of the brain, to understand how the brain works and how to treat brain diseases. We are looking for a Computational Associate for Whole Brain Circuit Mapping to develop and implement new approaches to reconstructing neuron morphologies and identifying connections between neurons from new kinds of experimental brain mapping data, generated by new technologies we have invented (e.g., expansion microscopy). The datasets produced in this way will serve as the basis for deriving fundamental insights about the computational architecture of the brain.
