The Computation & Theory (C&T) group at Janelia invites applications for the Janelia Theory Fellow program. Our group brings together expertise in computational and mathematical biology, machine vision and learning, and theoretical neuroscience. We tackle fundamental questions in biology by maximizing the insight extracted from biological data and closing the loop between theory and experiment.
