Dear all,
Below is the description of a position opening at USC, Los Angeles, in
January 2011.
Thanks for spreading the word.
Francois Tadel


    Research Programmer, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA

The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern
California is seeking a research programmer to participate in the
development, distribution and support of software for functional brain
mapping. The programmer will be responsible for implementing software
for all phases of the analysis of magnetoencephalograpy (MEG) and
electroencephalography (EEG) data and its integration of other
functional and structural imaging modalities. The resulting software,
which will be developed under grant support from the National Institutes
of Health, will be distributed to researchers throughout the US and the
rest of the world, for analysis of data collected in cognitive
neuroscience and clinical research studies. This project will be
conducted under the supervision of Professor Richard Leahy in the
Department of Electrical Engineering and will involve close
collaboration with researchers at USC and other institutions.


    * Play a leading role in developing common workflow, data
      structures, and file formats for use in analysis of MEG and EEG data.
    * Develop and document code to implement algorithms for analysis and
      display of M/EEG data.
    * Development of procedures for automated testing of software and
      software updates.
    * Develop and support procedures for distribution and documentation
      of new software.
    * Participate in training of users
    * Participate in research meetings and interact with PhD students,
      postdocs and research faculty in Dr. Leahy's lab in the
      development of new approaches to the analysis of MEG and EEG data.
    * Work with collaborators who are also developing software to
      facilitate interoperability between software packages with the
      ultimate goal of producing a single software package for EEG and
      MEG data analysis.
