Please announce this job opportunity in Brazil:

IT Specialist positions in the NeuroMat Project (University of Sao Paulo -

The Center for Research, Innovation, and Dissemination NeuroMat is offering
technical training scholarships for Computer Science/Engineering
professionals interested in applying their Computing experience on world
class scientific research. The recipient will interact with researchers
from USP and other NeuroMat collaborating institutions in activities of
development, customization, maintenance, and deployment of software to
support the research activities of the center.

The NeuroMat project aims to integrate modeling with basic and applied
research at the frontier of neuroscience. The goal of the project is to
develop a mathematical and computational framework leading to the
theoretical understanding of neural systems, fully integrated with
experimental research in neuroscience. New models, theories, and open
source software will be developed to handle the huge quantity of data
produced by current experimental research and to provide a conceptual
framework for the multiscale aspects of neural phenomena.

Neuromat is a "Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center" funded by
FAPESP (Sao Paulo Research Foundation), an independent public foundation
with the mission to foster research and the scientific and technological
development of the State of São Paulo, in Brazil.

- Number of available positions: 3

- Monthly Salary: BRL 5.908,80 (for 40 hours of work per week)

- Requirements: applicants should be graduated in Computer

of São Paulo (USP) - São Paulo / Brazil

- Planned activities include one or more of the following: database
modeling, implementation and management; development of open source
computational systems and tools to acquire, store and analyze data from
neuroscience experiments such as the electrophysiological (EEG, TMS, EMG,
etc.), neuroimaging (MRI, MEG, etc.) and behavioral experiments; creation
and maintenance of the project Web portal.
The software developed in NeuroMat will be both used internally by members
of the project as a means to carry on the project-related research as well
as released as Open Source Software on the Web portal of the project.

The scholarships will be awarded to candidates capable of carrying out at
least one of the following activities:
  1) Software architecture and development
  2) Software testing, packaging, and distribution
  3) Dissemination of results in Web portal

programming and Web programming (JavaScript, Java, PHP, Python, Ruby on
Rails, or others), persistence frameworks  (for example, Hibernate and
ActiveRecord), agile software development, software testing, Matlab,
processing of biological signals (such as EEG, EMG and fMRI).

The trainees will not only offer support for the products to be developed
by the research project but will also be trained by the USP FLOSS
Competence Center (http://ccsl.ime.usp.br) in advanced techniques for the
development and dissemination of open source software and digital media.

To apply for one of these positions, please send your CV to Lourdes Netto (
lourdesv at ime.usp.br) until September 15th, 2013.
