Careers – vacant positions at Blue Brain

Join the team at the Blue Brain Project

Blue Brain’s Team Science approach sees multi-disciplinary teams working together to build the world’s first biologically detailed digital reconstructions and simulations of the mouse brain.

Our aim is to establish simulation neuroscience as a complementary approach alongside experimental, theoretical and clinical neuroscience to understanding the brain.

Open Science and Open Source are key themes of our work. Through sharing our models and data as well as open sourcing our software and technology we are contributing to accelerating brain science and you can be a part of this.
