Web Application and Database Developer

The Integrative and Computational Neuroscience Unit
(http://www.unic.cnrs-gif.fr/) at the Gif sur Yvette campus of the CNRS, near
Paris, France, seeks a highly motivated individual to work on a
neuroinformatics project in the context of a pan-European project on
brain-inspired computing (http://www.facets-project.org).

The project involves development of a database of experimental data 
from the visual system, combining diverse datasets from research 
labs in London, Debrecen (Hungary), Gif sur Yvette and Marseille, France, with 
multiple interfaces (web, web-services, and via in-house developed data
analysis/acquisition software). The database will provide data for use within
the FACETS project (http://www.facets-project.org) in models of visual cortex
and in the development of novel analog VLSI hardware for neural circuit 
emulation, and will also be made available to the wider scientific community.

Requirements: Bachelor's or Master's degree in computer science, software
engineering or other field with comparable software engineering experience.
Demonstrable expert-level knowledge of relational databases (PostgreSQL,
MySQL), dynamic languages (Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP, etc.), both Linux/Unix
and Windows environments, and web development (AJAX, XML, DOM, HTML,
JavaScript, CSS, etc.). Interest in neuroscience. Strong software engineering 
skills. Fluent English essential, ability to speak French preferred but not 

Please send your CV and the contact details of three referees to 
andrew.davison at unic.cnrs-gif.fr, or feel free to make informal inquiries to 
the same address.
