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
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
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
* 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.
* 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)
* Familiarity with DSP/FGPA devices and the associated
* Prior experience in a research laboratory (even if it's not
* Prior experience with auditory engineering
If you're interested, please contact me for more information.
