System manager scholarship

The Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center on Neuromathematics (RIDC NeuroMat) is offering scholarships for information technology professionals interested in being part of a breakthrough and innovative scientific project.

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. For more information:

The recipients 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.

Remuneration: It’s a FAPESP Technical Expertise Scholarship of level 5, in the value of BRL 7.372,40, for 40 hours of work per week. For more information on the scholarship: and e
