Help improve open-source software for neuroscience experiments


#1

We are looking for a developer to build visualization plugins for Open Ephys, an open-source platform for neuroscience experiments used by researchers around the world. Electrophysiology data from brains has very similar bandwidth and bit depth to audio signals, which made JUCE the ideal framework for building our application. So far, the software has mainly been developed by scientists, so it doesn’t always adhere to the best possible coding standards. But, in combination with the low-cost open-source hardware we’ve designed, it has become a popular tool for data acquisition within the academic neuroscience community.

Now that Open Ephys is being used more widely, we are seeking a professional programmer to polish the software and build new real-time visualizations that can display information about hundreds to thousands of electrodes simultaneously.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience building desktop audio processing and visualization plugins/applications with JUCE
  • Experience with optimizing processor-intensive graphical displays
  • Ability to work 40 hrs/week for 3-6 months
