caesar is a neuroscience research institute associated with the Max Planck Society and is located in Bonn. caesar’s research is interdisciplinary with scientists from various research areas working together on the topics of cellular signal processing and the neural foundations of behavior. This ranges from studying the behavior of single-cell organisms to studying one of the key questions of neuroscience: how does neuronal activity give rise to complex and goal-directed behavior?
We are currently looking for a Head of Scientific Computing
(m/f/d, full time) to join us at the next possible opportunity.
The position will initially be for 2 years with the possibility of continuation.
As the Head of Scientific Computing you will lead a newly forming centralized scientific computing core facility. You will have the opportunity to recruit and build your own team of scientific computing experts and create the strategy for the developing group. The primary goal of your group is to facilitate research by providing a central resource for scientific algorithm development, data analysis, image analysis, machine learning expertise, and software development. A key aspect of this will be managing and developing algorithms for a new, currently being installed, mid-size High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster. caesar is also modernizing storage with two mid-size storage units for the purpose of facilitating the use and retention of scientific data and your facility will assist scientists to effectively use this resource.
caesar is committed to diversity and inclusion and is aiming to increase the percentage of women in areas where they are under-represented. We therefore explicitly encourage women to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.
