(Apologies for cross postings)

The Silver lab (http://silverlab.org) at University College London is looking to hire a postdoc/research associate to work on a project to extend the functionality of the Open Source Brain platform (http://www.opensourcebrain.org, Gleeson et al. Neuron 2019) to support the sharing of standardised experimental neuroscience data alongside neuronal models. This will involve building web-based infrastructure and the curation and standardisation of neuroscience models (in NeuroML format) and data (in Neurodata Without Borders format). This will facilitate collaborative model development and model reuse by the community as well as enable interactive display and analysis of models and neuroscience data through the browser.

A PhD in neuroscience, physics, computer science or a related field is required, as well as experience in computational neuroscience, neuroinformatics, or development of analysis pipelines for electrophysiology and imaging data. A strong foundation in computer programming, with strong competencies in data structures, algorithms and software design is essential, along with demonstrable knowledge of UNIX/Linux, experience of web development technologies and Python and/or JavaScript programming experience.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to fully participate in the academic activities related to this initiative including contributing to research and attending scientific conferences.

Deadline for applications is 3rd Jan 2020. The post is funded for 2 years in the first instance. Full details can be found here<https://atsv7.wcn.co.uk/search_engine/jobs.cgi?owner=5041179&ownertype=fair&jcode=1847743&vt_template=965&adminview=1>.
