The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat) is offering FAPESP scholarships for information technology professionals interested in being part of a breakthrough and innovative scientific project. The recipient will interact with researchers from USP and other NeuroMat collaborating institutions in activities of development, customization, maintenance and deployment of open software related to the scientific goals of the center. The software developed in NeuroMat will be both used internally by members of the project as a means to carry on the project-related research as well as released as Open Source Software.
NeuroMat is a world class scientific center hosted by the University of São Paulo and funded by FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation). The goal of the center is to develop a mathematical and computational framework leading to the theoretical understanding of neural systems, fully integrated with experimental research at the frontier of neuroscience. New models, theories, and open source softwares will be developed to handle the huge quantity of data produced by experimental research and to provide a conceptual framework for the multiscale aspects of neural phenomena.
