The Computational Neuroscience team of the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (NeuroPSI) hires an engineer (“ingénieur d'étude”) position to develop computer tools (in Python) to model neuronal populations. The goal of the work is to build a computational model comprising several human brain regions, using the (python-based) tool “The Virtual Brain”. This work will contribute to the European project "Human Brain Project" (HBP).
- Develop and optimize open-source software to simulate neural systems
- Construct networks of neural populations in python
- Collaborate with local and international partners of HBP
- Programming in Python language (C++ would be a plus)
- Produce efficient and clear code, tested and documented
- Mastering of technical English
- Knowledge in neuroscience
You must be autonomous and also able to work in a team.
The Computational Neuroscience team comprises about 12 researchers, students and engineers, and is part of the Department of Integrative and Computational Neuroscience in the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (NeuroPSI). The team is interdisciplinary, at the interface between neuroscience, physics, engineering, computer science, and with a strong implication in European projects.
