Data Scientist (Neurobiology) - NIH - Bethesda, MD



Kelly Government Solutions is a strategic supplier and business partner to the federal government and its key suppliers. Through our partnership with the National Institutes of Health, Kelly Government Solutions offers administrative, IT, engineering, scientific, and healthcare professionals the opportunity to work with one of the most prestigious research organizations in the world. We are currently seeking a **Data Scientist** to work onsite with the National Institutes of Health in **Bethesda, MD.**



For this position, we are seeking an individual who is eager to work at the interface of data science and neurobiological research. Capitalizing on recent advances in imaging-related technologies, NIMH researchers are analyzing brain circuits in large 3-dimensional volumes, including entire brains, at the level of individual neurons. Measuring patterns of neuronal activity and gene expression at the single cell level in such large volumes generates complex, multichannel datasets that can exceed 2 TB per experiment. Extracting information from these large datasets presents analytical challenges at multiple levels and requires adapting and optimizing methods for data handling (e.g. merging multiple views, spectral unmixing, spatial deconvolution, and segmentation) and analysis (e.g. correlation and cluster analysis, pattern recognition, etc.). In addition, correlating brain circuit activity with complex patterns of behavior, requires methods for automating behavioral characterization such as machine learning. If you meet the requirements listed below and are passionate about applying the techniques of big data to push science forward, please apply below.



**OVERVIEW.** This is a long-term, open-ended contract position which offers:




+ Competitive salary with a comprehensive benefits package.
