The International Brain Laboratory (IBL) is seeking a Software Engineer, who will play a key role in a new large-scale international collaboration in brain research. The IBL combines the efforts of approximately 50 scientists in 20 laboratories toward understanding the brain-wide basis of a complex behavior. Further details about the laboratory may be found at https://www.internationalbrainlab.com/.
The Software Engineer (SE) will work with scientists in our member labs to develop and ensure the smooth running of all software and hardware systems. This will require travel to member labs to solve problems that cannot be solved remotely. The SE will also be responsible for project-wide IT functions such as system administration, account control and website design. As this is a distributed collaboration, the candidate should be prepared to travel to all partner sites, with a home base in New York, London, or Lisbon. This position would be an ideal opportunity for an individual interested in brain research to learn about this fascinating subject.
The post is available immediately and is funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust for one year in the first instance.
