Missions

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. This position can be filled at the postdoc or software engineer levels, depending on experience and interests. The goal is to ensure and promote the reproducibility of computational modelling, both within the Human Brain Project and more widely.

Activities

- verifying the reproducibility of models produced by the Human Brain Project and/or published through the EBRAINS research infrastructure.
- 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.
- developing workflows to automate this verification process as much as possible.

Skills

- PhD or Masters degree 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.

Work Context

The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (https://neuropsi.cnrs.fr/en/institute-home/) is a research unit of the CNRS and the University 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/fr/icn/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.
