Job offer: software developer at device center for reproducible neuroimaging

Dear all,

In our DFG-funded project “Tools and practices for reproducible and open neuroscience” we are looking for a new team member for the development of a python based software for research data management with a focus on neuroimaging data, such as MEG and MRI data.

Please circulate this among your students and other potential applicants.

The research data management software should be based on the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS). The project has two stages. The first stage is the development of a tool to convert all data acquired at the main devices of our facility (MEG and MRI) into the BIDS standard. The second part is providing additional features to this tool, such as extracting and annotating metadata in a standardized form to accompany the converted datasets in order to make them better understandable and increase the efficiency of the data.

The salary level is approximately 38000-40000 Euros p.a. with 40h/week. The position can be split.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual to fill this position. The successful applicant has finished an apprenticeship as a software technician or a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field and has prior experience with programming in python. Experience in the domain of software engineering and working with BIDS data are welcome. Students looking to finance their studies are highly encouraged to apply for this position.

For enquiries, please contact Aaron Reer: or Prof. Dr. Jochem Rieger: Send your application preferred in one single pdf document (letter of motivation, CV, certificates) to Aaron Reer, E-mail: The deadline for applications is March, 10th, 2023.

The Applied NeuroCognitive Psychology lab (ANCP lab) is located at the Carl-von-Ossietzky University, Oldenburg, Germany. Remote work is possible. Conditions can be negotiated.
