The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM) at the Juelich Research Center in Germany investigates the structure and function of the brain. The department INM-6 consists of 3 groups that conduct research in the field of computational and systems neuroscience. The group of Statistical Neuroscience headed by Prof. Sonja Grün aims to develop computational methods to analyze the joint activity of neuronal networks monitored by electrophysiological multi-channel recordings, and to apply these methods to data in the framework of international collaborations.

The group is hiring a

Coordinator Software Technology (m/f)

to strengthen its international and interdisciplinary team.

Your tasks: Coordination of the development of analysis tools, and making that software available via technology platforms. Implementation of statistical analysis tools for neuronal data processing. Establishment of professional workflows within the group and with experimental partners. Responsibility for documentation. Internet presentation of the software. Integration of installation routines for workstations and high performance computing clusters. Organization of storage and transfer of large data. You will represent the technology at scientific conferences, during educational courses, to the public, and within the framework of the Human Brain Project.

Your profile: University degree in mathematics or natural sciences; you are convincing with your confident attitude as well as good communication skills, and are a team worker in an international and interdisciplinary environment; very good expertise in the programming languages Python, Matlab, and C/C++, and in the standard Linux tools for creating, distributing, and evolving software; experience in conceptualizing and programming scientific analysis methods; experience in creating documentation and course material; experience in creating parallel and distributed programs; solid knowledge of versioning and bug tracking systems; integration in the international Computational Neuroscience community; experience in web development, in particular WIKI technologies; fluent in spoken and written English.

We offer: a position in a creative and international team that conducts research at the frontiers of science, themes ranging from computational neuroscience to simulation technology. The Jülich Research Center is one of the largest research centers in Europe, with excellent scientific equipment including the fastest supercomputer in Europe, is located on a green campus, and near the cultural centers Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Aachen/Aix-La-Chapelle.

Applications, including a motivation letter, CV, and publication list, should be sent to:
