At the German Neuroinformatics Node (G-Node, http://www.g-node.org),
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. Variety and complexity of data in this
field bring 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 and tools for
metadata management and data annotation. G-Node is part of the Bernstein
Network Computational Neuroscience (http://nncn.de), is collaborating
with the International Neuroinformatics Coordination Facility (INCF,
http://incf.org) Secretariat 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 (http://www.g-node.org/tools-and-services), working closely
with neuroscience laboratories that use, or plan to use, neuroinformatics

Candidates should have excellent programming skills, preferably in Python
and C++ 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 TV-L,
duration is one year with possibility of extension.

Severely disabled applicants will be given preference in case of equal
qualification. Applications by women are specifically encouraged.
