The International Brain Laboratory (https://www.internationalbrainlab.com/)
is seeking 5 collaborators who will play key roles in a new large-scale
international collaboration in brain research. The IBL combines the efforts
of approximately 50 scientists in 20 laboratories toward understanding the
brain-wide basis of a complex behavior. The project will involve recording
the activity of millions of neurons in the working brain and building
mathematical models of the resulting data. The data sets this project will
produce are vast and complex, including physiological recordings,
behavioural measurements, and video, all of which must be standardized into
common formats, integrated into a single database, and subjected to quality
control. These core positions will support the both experimental and
theoretical work through the entire lifecycle of data, including
acquisition, analysis, modeling and dissemination.

Project Manager (PM) - The primary responsibilities of the PM will include
ensuring delivery of key milestones, managing overall project budget and
finances, facilitating project governance and internal communication, and
liaising with funders, external agencies and partners. Candidates should
have demonstrated success in project management of a comparable scale and a
strong background in scientific research.

Technical Manager (TM) - The TM will be responsible for ensuring
reproducibility of experiments across labs by (1) helping to establish and
maintain a common set of experimental apparatus for behavior and neural
recordings and (2) establishing procedures for standardizing, monitoring
and troubleshooting experimental conditions, including animal subjects,
surgical procedures, materials, etc. The position will involve extensive
travel between ten experimental laboratories at six institutions across the
U.S. and Europe. The ideal candidate would have a PhD in neuroscience and
very strong technical and experimental skills. Strong organizational and
interpersonal skills are required. Prior experience in laboratory or
project management is desirable.

Data Coordinator (DC) - The DC will work closely with our contributing labs
and scientific programming staff to ensure the integrity and organization
of data collected by experimental labs. The ideal candidate would have a
PhD in neuroscience, and extensive experience with large neurophysiological
and behavioral datasets. Attention to detail and ability to work
collaboratively are both essential. Strong computing ability is also
important, including knowledge of relational databases, Python and MATLAB.

Scientific MATLAB Programmer (SMP) - The SP will contribute to the design
of applications and pipelines for organization, storage and analysis of
this data. The job will involve building software and data infrastructure
for this collaborative research project, and supporting it. The ideal
candidate will have extensive experience with MATLAB and previous work with
big data in scientific research. Knowledge of Python and relational
databases and experience interfacing with experimental control hardware is
desirable.

Senior Scientific Programmer (SSP) - The SSP will lead the design of
applications and pipelines for organization, storage and analysis of this
data. The job will involve building software and data infrastructure, as
well as a role in ensuring data integrity, working closely with data
providers to ensure it meets project standards. The ideal candidate will
have extensive experience with relational databases and Python. Experience
with MATLAB, previous work with big data in scientific research, and
experience interfacing with experimental control hardware would also be
desirable.

Remuneration will be competitive and commensurate with experience. There is
considerable flexibility in base location within the U.S. and Europe. To
apply, please send cover letter and CV to info at internationalbrainlab.com
with subject: PositionAcronym LastName. Review of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the position is filled, with an ideal start
date of Sept.-Oct., 2017.
