A position in neuroscience model curation and verification is available within the Neuroinformatics research group of the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, as part of the Human Brain Project.

The successful candidate will be responsible for verifying the reproducibility of models produced by the Human Brain Project and/or published through the EBRAINS research infrastructure. This will involve working with scientists from many institutions to ensure their code is usable by others, and that it reliably reproduces the results shown in associated publications. It is expected that the candidate will develop workflows to automate this verification process as much as possible.

Applicants should have a PhD in neuroscience, computer science, library/information science, or a closely related discipline, preferably with experience of computational modelling. Experience of simulation tools often used in computational neuroscience, such as NEURON, NEST or Brian, would be of particular benefit; knowledge of computer programming (in Python, C++, MATLAB or other) is essential. Knowledge of French would be helpful but is not required, as English is the working language of the project.

The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (https://neuropsi.cnrs.fr/en/institute-home/) is a research unit of the CNRS and the Université Paris-Saclay, located in Gif sur Yvette, about 40 minutes from central Paris. The Neuroinformatics research group (https://neuropsi.cnrs.fr/en/icn-home/andrew-davison/ <https://neuropsi.cnrs.fr/en/icn-home/andrew-davison/>) develops novel informatics tools and approaches for neuroscience data sharing, modelling and simulation, and for brain-inspired computing. This post is funded by the Human Brain Project, an EU Flagship initiative in which over 100 partners work together to build a completely new information computing technology infrastructure for neuroscience and for brain-related research in medicine and computing.
