The Computational Cognitive Neuroscience lab at the University of Colorado Boulder (http://grey.colorado.edu/CompCogNeuro/index.php/CCNLab) and eCortex, Inc are seeking Computational Modelers who will construct, program, train, test, and support complex models of brain areas and functions. This is not a software development position, but the ability and patience to program complex software applications has proven to be an excellent indicator of success in computational modeling. Consequently, we are seeking motivated individuals with at least a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and two years of industry experience developing software that is more complex than a web GUI. Any pertinent experience or coursework in AI, computer simulation, neural networks, neuroscience, and/or cognitive science is a plus, but there will be supervision and expertise available on these domain-specific aspects of the role, and we will train you on the relevant software (emergent neural network simulation software http://grey.colorado.edu/emergent, and other relevant tools including MATLAB, Python, and R). Interest in and enthusiasm for this field is essential.

The positions are funded through various research projects, and the time commitment is initially for 1 year, with renewal opportunities for subsequent years.  Some advantages of the position include: flexible hours, a casual academic-like work environment, and the opportunity to make important contributions to figuring out one of the greatest mysteries in the universe: the brain. Salary will be competitive with industry positions and based on experience.  The University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment, and eCortex is committed to equal employment opportunity.

Please email a resume and cover letter to Randy.OReilly at colorado.edu.
