Recruiting a Data Scientist/Neurobiologist for Zebrafish Brain Atlas 2.0

The Department Genes – Circuits – Behavior at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology is looking to hire a data scientist with an interest in neuroscience, genetics and brain atlas development or a neurobiologist with affinity for brain anatomy, big data and machine learning.

Our group has assembled a large collection of single-neuron morphologies and gene expression patterns, which we have registered to a standard brain of the zebrafish larva (see Kunst et al., Neuron 2019). Now we are in the process of advancing this resource by integrating functional imaging data, EM connectomes and other data modalities.

The position is best suited for a systematic thinker who enjoys coding as much as high-quality visuals. You need good judgment, communication skills, logical thinking, a passion for science and an eye for details. Your salary will be that of a staff scientist/postdoc and commensurate with your experience.

If interested please direct your inquiries and apply with a succinct letter of motivation, a CV and the names of two or three references to Herwig Baier (). We strictly adhere to equal opportunity principles in our hiring process. The search will continue until the position is filled.
