The Computational Memory Lab is currently seeking applications for the following positions:

Application Developer B

This work will include the rapid and flexible development of new experiments in human memory, as well as critical improvements to existing programs and libraries. The candidate is expected to coordinate with a team of cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, and engineers on multiple projects involving brain stimulation to boost human cognitive abilities, online experiments of human memory, and computational cluster analyses of EEG data from human participants. Active coordination is expected with the systems development team to design systems, develop plans and testing procedures, and prepare releases. Other responsibilities may include resolving systems administration issues, file server and web system issues, and computer cluster issues. Additional projects may include analysis of collected data and simulations of human memory processes in computer models of memory.

The position is planned as temporarily remote, with an expectation of on-site presence at the University of Pennsylvania upon resumption of on-site activities for this position category.

Required qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or related field, with 1 year of experience.
  • Experience in C++ and Python programming.
  • Demonstrated experience completing significant technical projects or working on large code bases.
  • Familiarity with Linux.
  • Familiarity with version control and deployment tools, such as git, conda, pip, travis, or similar.
  • Experience designing software architectures.
  • Ability to work on a software engineering team.
  • Responsive to software users and able to translate user needs into concrete software requirements.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Expertise in Python programming.
  • Exceptional quantitative skills.
  • Experience with Unity or Qt.
  • Experience with data analysis.
  • Experience with hardware and electronics.
