Please do not forward this to other bboards, but you can forward it to
selected individuals you think may be suitable.

I'm looking for an experienced C/C++ programmer to work on "neural"
software in a high-performance scientific computing environment.
Almost all the work will be focused on parallel platforms: workstation
clusters, massively parallel supercomputers and SMPs.  The user
community is scientists in neuroscience, psychology and other related
disciplines.  The full text of the job ad appears below.  Respond to
ngoddard at psc.edu.

work within the Biomedical Applications Group of PSC. In addition to being a
national center established by the National Science Foundation, the PSC is a
National Institutes of Health sponsored research resource and has an extensive
program of research and development of biomedical applications, including
molecular modeling, protein and nucleic acid sequence analysis and neural
science. This position is responsible for helping to develop software for the
biomedical applications group at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center,
particularly in the neural sciences area and with a focus on parallel
applications. The position responsibilities will include writing original code
as well as working with existing code, and the associated documentation and
test routines.  Examples of projects include: parallelization of the GENESIS
neural simulation system; development of a database system for neural models
and associated data; development of near real-time parallel image processing
software for functional magnetic resonance imaging studies.
