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 
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 
simulations on a Blue Gene Supercomputer and on new special-purpose 
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 
in C++ and Linux, as well as experience in writing parallel software 
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
maass at igi.tugraz.at

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.
