At the German INCF Node (G-Node), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München,
a full-time position is available to join the G-Node team in developing
neuroinformatics solutions for data management in neurophysiology.
The amount, variety and complexity of data in this field brings the
challenge of large-scale data access, consistent storage and efficient
data analysis. G-Node is interacting closely with research labs to address
these challenges with state of the art neuroinformatics methods. Current
developments include a data sharing platform with an API for unified data
access and client tools for integration with the scientist's data analysis
environment (www.g-node.org/tools-and-services). G-Node is part of the
Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience (nncn.de), is collaborating
with the INCF Secretariat (incf.org) and other INCF National Nodes,
and is involved in teaching and training activities.

The position involves working in a small team of developers within a
lively neuroscience environment, with ample opportunities for bridging
between neuroscience research and neuroinformatics. Tasks will include
contributing to the development and enhancement of G-Node tools and
services, working closely with neuroscience laboratories that use, or
plan to use, neuroinformatics solutions, to identify needs, problems,
and solutions, incorporating the acquired knowledge for architectural
design decisions, software development and improvements, and interacting
with all G-Node partners.

Candidates should have excellent programming skills, preferably in Python,
C/C++, and/or Java, knowledge about relational databases, the ability
to work in a team, and a strong interest in the development of novel
open-source solutions for neuroscience. Experience in further fields of
relevance, such as web development (Javascript, HTML/CSS, web frameworks),
semantic web technologies, scientific software and analysis, experimental
or computational neuroscience, would be beneficial.

The position is available immediately, salary level is according to
German payscale TV-L, duration is two years with possibility of renewal.
Applications should include CV, statement of experience and motivation,
and names of referees. Informal inquiries prior to application are welcome.
Applications should be submitted by September 30, 2013, but applications
will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply, please send
your application as pdf by email to wachtler at bio.lmu.de.
