IBM has recently won Phase 1 of the DARPA SyNAPSE project that seeks to
discover, demonstrate, and deliver algorithms of the brain via a combination
of (computational) neuroscience, supercomputing, and nanotechnology. We are
seeking world-class candidates with expertise in one or more of the
following areas: computational neuroscience (spiking computation, synaptic
plasticity, structural plasticity), reinforcement learning, nonlinear
dynamical systems, systems of coupled difference equations, neuroanatomy
(gray matter, white matter), neurophysiology, neuromodulation, network
analysis, neuromorphic chip design, analog VLSI, digital VLSI, ultra
low-power computing, asynchronous VLSI, address events, circuit simulation,
chip layout, chip testing, large-scale simulations, MPI (message passing
interface), programming distributed memory machines, visualization, and
virtual environments (USARSim) for cognitive task design. Interdisciplinary
candidates with background in computer science, electrical engineering,
biomedical engineering, and computational neuroscience are strongly
encouraged to apply. Outstanding communication skills, ability to interact
with a large, technically diverse, distributed team, demonstrated
publication record, and relentless focus on project metrics and milestones
are a must. 
IBM is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an
equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive
consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion,
gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin,
genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
