The Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide.
The EPFL employs 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions : education, research and innovation.
The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of 16,000 people, including over 10,000 students and 3,500 researchers from 120 different countries.
Software engineer Frontend Web Developer (W / M)
Your mission :
The EPFL Blue Brain Project (BBP), situated on the Campus Biotech in Geneva, Switzerland, applies advanced neuroinformatics, data analytics, high-performance computing and simulation-based approaches to the challenge of understanding the structure and function of the mammalian brain in health and disease.
The BBP provides the community with regular releases of data, models and tools to accelerate neuroscience discovery and clinical translation through open science and global collaboration.
The aim of the Blue Brain Project is to build accurate, biologically detailed, digital reconstructions, and simulations of the rodent brain, and ultimately the human brain.
The brain is one of the biggest Big Data problems we have today. Therefore, the Neuroinformatics Software Engineering team recently open-sourced the Blue Brain Nexus platform to organize, store and process exceptionally large volumes of data in a semantic way and support usage by a broad number of users.
Going beyond the specific use case of the BBP, Blue Brain Nexus is designed to be agnostic of the data domain it is applied to, making it suitable for semantic data management within the scientific community as well as in many other industries.
Blue Brain Nexus is already being used by scientists and researchers all over the world.
You would be joining the Neuroinformatics Software Engineering team, which is in charge of developing the future of the Blue Brain Nexus platform, as a Software engineer - Frontend Web Developer (W / M) .
You will be tasked with designing and creating rich web applications to facilitate the work of scientists such as sharing and searching and visualizing data.
You have a product-oriented approach to designing user-centric and delightful software.
