A solid background in Python and at least one other HPC programming language such as C++, C, or Fortran is mandatory. Familiarity with concepts to parallelize deep learning applications and the Apache Spark platform is desirable. Experience in high-performance computing is considered a significant plus.

Our offer

We offer the opportunity to work on cutting-edge, high-performance AI projects at the interface of data science and high-performance computing, in close collaboration with leading domain scientists at the MPI-CBS, in both human neuroscience and neuroimaging, and its international partners.

The full-time position starts as soon as possible and is initially limited for a maximum period of three years. Salary will be based on experience according to the German TVöD.

Additional benefits include:

  • Flexible working hours and a friendly working environment
