[vox-jobs] Opening for a scientific programmer.

Hello Everyone!

Position for a Scientific Programmer

We have at our Institute in Graz, Austria an opening for a scientific programmer, who will
develop efficient software for the parallel simulation of large neural circuits, and
for carrying out learning experiments with such circuits. This software will replace
and extend earlier software described on http://www.lsm.tugraz.at/

This work will be carried out in collaboration with Dr. Thomas Natschlaeger,
in the framework of the 4-year EU Research project FACETS
The goal of this fairly large research project is the development of detailed large scale
models of neural circuits and areas, whose properties will be explored through
simulations on a Blue Gene Supercomputer and on new special-purpose hardware.
The salary for this position will be competitive.

We are looking for a programmer who has the abstraction capability to design interfaces
between different software components, and the skill and dedication needed for writing
software that runs efficiently. We also expect experience in software development
in C++ and Linux, as well as experience in writing parallel software (multithreading
and interprocess communication).

Interest or knowledge in computational neuroscience and/or machine learning
would be helpful (in the case of scientific interest in these areas, a simultaneous participation
in our Phd-Program is possible).

Send your application by October 10 to

Thanks and regards,
Prashant Joshi

I. Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of
its situation.
Daffy Duck steps off a cliff, expecting further pastureland. He
loiters in midair, soliloquizing flippantly, until he chances to
look down. At this point, the familiar principle of 32 feet per
second per second takes over.
II. Any body in motion will tend to remain in motion until solid matter
intervenes suddenly.
Whether shot from a cannon or in hot pursuit on foot, cartoon
characters are so absolute in their momentum that only a telephone
pole or an outsize boulder retards their forward motion absolutely.
Sir Isaac Newton called this sudden termination of motion the
stooge's surcease.
III. Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation
conforming to its perimeter.
Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the
speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless
cowards who are so eager to escape that they exit directly through
the wall of a house, leaving a cookie-cutout-perfect hole. The
threat of skunks or matrimony often catalyzes this reaction.
