Goal of the research project "Multiscale Virtual Fish" is to increase the insight into the functioning of the zebrafish nervous system by integrating measured and simulated data within a virtual environment and by performing visually supported analyses.
Primary tasks include:
- Integrated 3D / 4D visualization of different types of anatomical (3D images, geometry) and functional (activity time series) neuroscience data, obtained with different imaging modalities and at multiple scales in a common reference frame (atlas)
- Multi-scale neural network modeling, analysis and visualization
- Development of a web-based and/or desktop software solution to be used on a daily basis by neuroscientists
We expect creativity and a high degree of commitment in solving problems. We offer a friendly working atmosphere, excellent equipment and a challenging professional environment. We offer scientists in all career stages opportunities for further qualification and support and expect research on top level with international visibility. Non-PhD candidates are strongly encouraged to pursue a doctoral degree in conjunction with this work.
- University degree in computer science, mathematics or physics
- Experience in several of the following areas is essential: 3D / 4D visualization, image analysis, image registration, signal processing, geometry processing, 3D anatomical atlases, shape analysis, numerical modeling and simulation
- Applicants are expected to be highly motivated, self-reliant, and able to collaborate and work with top-level scientists in neurobiology
- Good command of written and spoken English is essential.
Persons with disabilities will be given preference, when equally qualified.
