The SimLab Neuroscience in the High Performance Computing in Neuroscience department of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre provides community-specific support for neuroscientists with respect to complex simulations and data analyses on supercomputers, as well as their methods. As part of its in-house research and development activities, the SimLab Neuroscience develops software for brain-scale simulations of neuronal networks at scales ranging from morphologically-detailed spiking neurons to population dynamics.
We are looking to recruit a
Scientific Software Developer with a focus on neuroscience community engagement
- Excellent communication skills to enable close collaboration with developers and users from academia at the interface between neuroscience and HPC
- Proactivity and curiosity
- Good command of spoken and written English
- A master degree and a PhD in computer science, computational neuroscience, mathematics, physics or a related subject
- Interest in dynamic neuroscientific problems at system, network or neuronal morphology scales
- Relevant experience in neuroscientific modelling and simulation
- Profound knowledge of software development processes and programming in C++ and Python
- Experience with HPC accelerator backends and in large-scale parallelization, ideally at supercomputing scales, is advantageous
Note that it is not necessary to fulfill all of these requirements in order to be considered for the position.
