Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbHJülich
As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields of information, energy, and bioeconomy. It focuses on varied tasks in the area of research management and utilizes large, often unique, scientific infrastructure. Come and work with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topics and disciplines at one of Europe's largest research centres.
The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM) at Research Center Jülich, Germany, investigates the structure and function of the human brain on different spatial and temporal scales within the research program "Decoding the Human Brain". The Supercomputing Centre is home of one of the most powerful machines and has a leading role in the European exascale strategy. Basic neuroscience connects the two research areas as it heavily relies on modeling and simulation, which are necessary to approach the brain's immense complexity, manage the huge amount of resulting data, and develop reliable control techniques. The subinstitute INM-6, Computational and Systems Neuroscience ( www.fz-juelich.de/inm/inm-6/EN/Home/home_node_INM6.html), develops mathematical models of neuronal dynamics and function. Model-driven analyses of brain activity and structure as well as simulation of biologically realistic models form the core of our work. Among others, the INM-6/IAS-6 is actively involved in the EU flagship project "Human Brain Project" (HBP, www.humanbrainproject.eu). Together with its partners, INM-6 develops analysis tools and the leading simulation code (NEST) for brain scale networks with cellular resolution in an open source approach ( www.nest-initiative.org ). NEST has been under continuous development for 20 years and is serving a worldwide community.
