Software Developer – Caesar

caesar is a neuroethology institute located in Bonn that studies how the collective activity of the vast numbers of interconnected neurons in the brain gives rise to the plethora of animal behaviors. Our research spans a large range of scales from the nano-scale imaging of brain circuitry, to large-scale functional imaging of brain circuitry during behavior, to the quantification of natural animal behaviors. caesar is closely associated with the Max Planck Society and shares its scientific principles.

We are currently looking for a

Software Developer (m/f/d)

(full time at 38,5 hours/week)

to join our new central service facility “Scientific Computing” at the next possible opportunity.


This position will initially be for 2 years with the possibility for extension.

Job description

  • Your main task will be to support our scientists with their analyses of scientific data using our new HPC-resources. To this end you will develop algorithms and code for the processing of high-resolution images from electron and fluorescence microscopy in close collaboration with our scientists, as well as algorithms and code for simulation of neuronal structures and networks.
  • You will also further develop and improve existing open-source and in-house applications with new methods and using modern programming paradigms and frameworks.
  • The performance optimization and maintenance of existing and new code/computational pipe­lines for execution on our in-house HPC cluster with GPUs will also be your responsibility. You will develop software that will likely combine classical algorithms and machine learning approaches. This will also include troubleshooting and documentation as well as testing of software while also considering usability-aspects. In addition, we expect you to participate in the development and application of new algorithmic and statistical methods for analyzing, integrating and visualizing large-scale image datasets.
