The mission of the Allen Institute is to unlock the complexities of bioscience and advance our knowledge to improve human health. Using an open science, multi-scale, team-oriented approach, the Allen Institute focuses on accelerating foundational research, developing standards and models, and cultivating new ideas to make a broad, transformational impact on science.
The mission of the Allen Institute for Brain Science is to accelerate the understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease. Using a big science approach, we generate useful public resources, drive technological and analytical advances, and discover fundamental brain properties through integration of experiments, modeling, and theory.
We seek an individual to work with interdisciplinary teams of experimental and computational scientists to manage processing of taxonomies and Patch-seq data sets, including (1) using existing and new computational methods to map Patch-seq cells to transcriptomic taxonomies, (2) develop and support applications for visualizing these results, and (3) support cross-team communication and taxonomy management, which could include creating and tracking brain region-specific taxonomies built from comprehensive existing taxonomies.
The Allen Institute believes that team science significantly benefits from the participation of diverse voices, experiences, and backgrounds. High-quality science can only be produced when it includes different perspectives. We are committed to increasing diversity across every team and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for this role.
