Stein Lab Research Assistant | Nuclei Ninja

Post Date

Are you interested in contributing to analytical tools for neuroscience? If so, come join our team!

Our lab is developing a cloud-based software platform to help us understand potential contributing cell types in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). To achieve this, we acquire light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) images from our mouse model of ASD and manually segment nuclei within these images. We use these manual annotations to train our machine learning algorithm designed to recognize nuclei within our LSFM images, which helps us quantify and characterize different cell types in ASD.

Successful applicants will need:
– An up-to-date resume or CV
– A brief (1-2 sentence) statement on how this research supports their career endeavors
– 10 hours / week to learn our software and manually segment nuclei
– Availability between 9am and 6pm to attend mandatory weekly team meetings
– Excellent attention to detail and an interest in neuroscience
– Prior research experience not necessary, but certainly helpful
