background ={The Human Brain Project (HBP) is an ambitious large-scale research  initiative funded by the European Commission with a high worldwide visibility. About 100 research institutes from different disciplines all over Europe cooperate intensively to  achieve a multi-level, integrated understanding of brain structure and function through the development and use of information and communication technologies (ICT). The project will run for about 10 years and during this time six ICT platforms will be developed. The Neurorobotics Platform (NRP) is a web-based platform for the design and performance of neurorobotics experiments, and is built under the aegis of Prof. Alois Knoll. It grants  neuroscientists easy access to state-of-the-art simulators: spiking neural networks,  robotics and physics. These simulators are connected together and coordinated within a closed loop. They run on high performance computing resources and on neuromorphic hardware. The NRP also provides tools to create neurorobotics experiments, namely designers for the creation of brain-body interfaces, virtual worlds and robot models. To strengthen our Neurorobotics team at TUM we are looking for an Assistant to the Software Development Director.},
