We are seeking postdoctoral associates to investigate how large populations of neurons perform complex computations. We collect and analyze recordings of 50,000+ neurons, developing machine learning tools to extract computational principles from these large-scale datasets. We welcome applications from various fields, with a preference for experimental neuroscientists and computational neuroscientists. 

Successful candidates for these positions will have:

  • A PhD in experimental neuroscience, computational neuroscience, or a related field
  • Programming expertise in Python (preferred) or MATLAB
  • Experience analyzing neural datasets and using machine learning pipelines 
  • Creative ideas to apply machine learning algorithms to neuroscience research

All research is internally funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, benefits are highly competitive, and start dates are flexible. The starting salary for postdoctoral associates at Janelia is $74,200. For information about Janelia, please visit www.janelia.org/about-us.
