Computer vision / deep learning location tracking of freely moving fish
Develop, optimize and apply new tracking strategies in Tensorflow
Analyze behavioral patterns
Use artificial neural networks to help us understand real neural networks in the brain
Interest in animal behavior and/or the brain
Programming experience with Python & Tensorflow/Keras
Currently enrolled as a university student (BSc or MSc)
What we offer:
Our lab is establishing a miniature fish species as a new model organism for neuroscience. Despite having the smallest known vertebrate brain, it displays fascinating behavior (including acoustic communication). Join our group of biologists, physicists, neuroscientists and engineers in studying brain circuits underlying vertebrate communication. We are based on the Charité Mitte campus near Berlin Hauptbahnhof.
We offer a HiWi contract for 60-80h/month and flexible working hours. Note that HiWi contracts can only be given to students.
How to apply:
Please email your CV and brief (< 250 word) motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "[hiwi-CNN]" in the email subject. You can find out more about our work at http://jlab.berlin
