Cha­rité - Neurowis­senschaft­liches Forschung­szen­trum

We are an inter­di­sci­pli­nary lab at the Neu­ro­sci­ence Rese­arch Cen­ter

HiWi pos­i­tion: Com­puter vis­ion / Animal beha­vior / Neur­os­cience


Work­ing field:

  • Com­puter vis­ion / deep learn­ing loc­a­tion track­ing of freely mov­ing fish
  • Develop, optim­ize and apply new track­ing strategies in Tensor­flow
  • Ana­lyze beha­vi­oral pat­terns
  • Use arti­fi­cial neural net­works to help us under­stand real neural net­works in the brain


  • Interest in animal beha­vior and/or the brain
  • Pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence with Python & Tensor­flow/Keras
  • Cur­rently enrolled as a uni­versity stu­dent (BSc or MSc)

What we of­fer:

Our lab is estab­lish­ing a mini­ature fish spe­cies as a new model organ­ism for neur­os­cience. Des­pite hav­ing the smal­lest known ver­teb­rate brain, it dis­plays fas­cin­at­ing beha­vior (includ­ing acous­tic com­mu­nic­a­tion). Join our group of bio­lo­gists, phys­i­cists, neur­os­cient­ists and engin­eers in study­ing brain cir­cuits under­ly­ing ver­teb­rate com­mu­nic­a­tion. We are based on the Char­ité Mitte cam­pus near Ber­lin Haupt­bahnhof.

We offer a HiWi con­tract for 60-80h/month and flex­ible work­ing hours. Note that HiWi con­tracts can only be given to stu­dents.
