Integrated Systems Biology Laboratory, Department of Systems Science,
Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
We are conducting a new research project which aims to reveal the neural
control of the reward system by constructing a computational model that
integrates transdisciplinary studies over molecular-cellular-circuit
level with our tenure track and post-doc researchers of various
backgrounds including systems biology, bioinformatics, computational
biology, mathematical engineering, and machine learning. Our laboratory
also has a strong collaboration with other laboratories in Advanced
Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR), RIKEN,
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) and NYU, Langone
Medical Center. The successful candidates will work on analysis for
microscopic images of neurons and neural circuits or bioinformatics for
neural proteomic data with our collaborators.
Candidates should have a strong background in one or more of these areas:
-Image processing: image super-resolution, segmentation, object
-Bioinformatics: omics analysis, proteomics analysis, pathway analysis
-Systems biology: molecular, cellular, circuit level modeling
-Statistical learning: large-scale data-driven learning, data mining
