Hi all,
the Mrsic-Flogel lab at the University of Basel, Switzerland is looking to
fill 2 positions: a data scientist and a research associate. The official
announcement is below.
Thanks!

*Data scientist position in the Mrsic-Flogel lab*

The Mrsic-Flogel lab is seeking a highly motivated data scientist. The main
focus of our research
<http://www.biozentrum.unibas.ch/research/groups-platforms/overview/unit/mrsic-flogel/>
is
to understand the visual cortex.

The primary responsibilities for this position will be to design data
analysis packages for processing large data sets. Our lab uses two-photon
imaging of individual neurons, wide field imaging of the entire cortex, and
electrophysiology to understand how neural activity relates to sensory
perception and behavior. The successful candidate should have extensive
experience working with large data sets, be highly organized and
detail-oriented, be able to work both independently and within a team, and
have a degree in physical or biological sciences (or several years of work
experience). Experience with imaging data, and familiarity with
sophisticated analysis techniques (e.g. dynamic causality modelling,
machine learning, etc.) are ideal. Familiarity with MATLAB and/or LABVIEW a
plus.

Applications (in electronic form), including CV, a brief description of
previous research experience/software projects, and contact information of
two references should be addressed to Tom Mrsic-Flogel, Biozentrum,
University of Basel, Klingelbergstrasse 70, 4056 Basel, Switzerland (
mrsic-flogel at googlegroups.com).

Additional info

Full-time position, starting immediately or upon agreement. The position is
initially for 1-2 years. Salary and benefits according to University of
Basel standards.

The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the leading institutes
worldwide for molecular and biomedical basic research and teaching. It is
home to more than 30 research groups with scientists from over 40
countries. Research at the Biozentrum focuses on the areas of Cell Growth &
Development, Infection Biology, Neurobiology, Structural Biology &
Biophysics and Computational & Systems Biology. With more than 550
employees, the Biozentrum is the largest department at the University of
Basel’s Faculty of Science.

Basel is an international city with people from 150 nations. Located on the
border where three countries meet – Switzerland-Germany-France, it is
