About BDI The Bridging Divides Initiative (BDI) is a non-partisan research initiative that tracks and mitigates political violence in the United States. BDI supports efforts to grow and build local community resilience through elections and other periods of heightened risk, laying the groundwork for longer-term to bridge the divides we face as a nation. We do this by 1) producing action-oriented and responsive research to fill existing gaps and empower local leaders; 2) enabling cross-sector collaboration, so individuals and organizations are better prepared to mitigate risk and respond to crisis when it does arise; and 3) helping to drive the policy and community response. Over the past three years, BDI played an essential role in supporting a wide range of actors preparing for...

Petascale EM Imaging Specialist The Princeton Neuroscience Institute is searching for an accomplished scientist to lead acquisitions of petascale image datasets via volume electron microscopy (EM). The Institute is the only site in the world hosting beam deflection transmission EM and multibeam scanning EM instruments, both of which have sufficient throughput for petascale connectomics. The Institute leads the FlyWire Consortium, which in 2023 released the first connectome of an adult brain, that of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. The Institute is a key performer in the NIH BRAIN CONNECTS program, which aims to scale connectomics up to the whole mouse brain.

Connectome Annotation Manager OverviewThe Seung & Murthy Lab at Princeton Neuroscience Institute aims to make discoveries by mapping the brain. The Lab is using high-throughput serial electron microscopy (SEM) to completely image multiple brains and nervous systems. The massive data sets will be utilized to reconstruct neuronal circuits, ultimately culminating in the complete connectome—or wiring diagram—of the brain. The connectome will provide the most complete anatomical description of a complex nervous system to date in an organism uniquely suited to combine this anatomical information with functional imaging, electrophysiology, quantitative behavioral assays, precise genetic manipulation of identified cell types and computational modeling. Thus we expect these circuit-level...
