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 
challenge 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, including tools and 
formats for data annotation, management, and sharing.
G-Node is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is 
part of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience (http://nncn.de) and 
national node of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF, 

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 include contributing to the 
development and enhancement of G-Node formats, tools and services 
(http://www.g-node.org/tools-and-services, https://github.com/G-Node), working 
closely with neuroscience laboratories that use, or plan to use, 
neuroinformatics solutions.

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

The position is available immediately, salary level is according to TV-L,
