Software Developers & Scientific Computation Experts

Brain: the final frontier. Our mission: to answer the ultimate question "How does the mind arise from the network of neurons?" We are looking for software developers & scientific computation experts who will join the quest.

Research Challenges:

  • Analyze electron and light microscopic brain images and experiment data to map the neurons and their circuits
  • Develop an automated brain image analysis system using artificial intelligence and other computational techniques
  • Build a computation platform for analyzing and sharing petabytes of brain data
  • Study the brain map to mathematically and computationally understand neural circuits and their activity

Minimum Requirements:

  • B.S. in computer, science, technology, engineering, math or a related field
  • One or more native programming language with good knowledge of algorithms and data structures

More Experience, Extra Credits:

  • Web/desktop application or service development, GUI programming, data visualization, 3D graphics
