[JOB] New York University contract position for experiment control GUI

From: Brad B.
Sent on: Tuesday, November 2, 2010 11:21 AM
The Center for Neural Science at New York University is looking for a
Python programmer willing to work on a contract basis. ��The programmer
will build a stimulus generation, experiment control, and data
acquisition program that will be used in several neuroscience
laboratories.

You know you're a great fit for the job if you know what band-limited,
amplitude-modulated noise is, and can figure out how to generate the
waveform (assistance from your signals and systems textbook definitely
OK). ��Better yet, can you figure out how to compute the required
amplitude of a tone (in volts) to produce a given dB SPL when the
waveform is fed through a speaker? ��If you do, we want to hear from
you!

Key components of the framework include:
* A GUI that allows the user to build an auditory signal from basic
building blocks (tone, noise, frequency modulation, etc) and
manipulate the parameters (e.g. change the tone frequency, rate of
modulation, etc).
* A controller that uploads the auditory signals to external hardware
(for playout during the experiment) and downloading acquired data.
* A GUI to perform some basic analysis and plot the acquired data.

This job is open to anyone, whether you're entry-level or a senior
developer. ��Compensation is proportional with experience.

Technical requirements
* Strong knowledge of Python
* Knowledge of signal processing
* Able to commute to New York University (Washington Square campus in
Manhattan) several times a week to meet with us and test the program.
* Familiarity with a GUI toolkit (we are agnostic when it comes to wx versus Qt)

Bonus experience
* Familiarity with DSP/FGPA devices and the associated
schema-definition languages
* Prior experience in a research laboratory (even if it's not
programming-related)­
* Prior experience with auditory engineering

If you're interested, please contact me for more information.
