The Max Planck Institute for Brain Research 
<https://www.mpg.de/151405/hirnforschung?section=all> in Frankfurt am 
Main, Germany, is an innovative and growing research facility of the Max 
Planck Society for the Advancement of Science.

The Department of Neural Systems and Coding 
<https://brain.mpg.de/research/laurent-department.html> (Prof. Dr. Dr. 
Gilles Laurent) is part of the interdisciplinary neuroscience campus in 
Frankfurt/Riedberg where the new MPI building is located. Research in 
the Department aims to understand the physiology of perception with an 
experimental focus centered on neural computation, neuronal coding and 

To support our international team of biologists, computer scientists and 
physicists, we invite applications for a full time staff position 
as Computer scientist or Scientific programmer, starting as soon as
