Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.
The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah invites applications for a post-doctoral researcher for interdisciplinary work in uncertainty and/or multifield visualization. The successful candidate will perform research in uncertainty and/or multifield visualization and work closely with SCI Institute researchers and external collaborators on compelling problems in science and engineering.

The SCI Institute is seeking a highly talented and committed individual with a demonstrated ability to work well with minimal supervision in a multi-disciplinary research environment. The successful candidate will contribute to the Institute's world-class research and software development in scientific visualization and have the opportunity to develop their research, publication, and presentation skills under mentorship from established faculty investigators.

Non-Technical Skills: Excellent oral and written communication skills are mandatory. A willingness to collaborate in a highly diverse, multi-disciplinary environment is also essential.

Start date: Immediate.
FTE: 1.0
Salary Range: $60,000 - $65,000

The initial appointment will be for a one-year period, with the possibility of an extension based upon performance and availability of funding.

The University of Utah, an AA/EO employer, encourages applications from women and minorities, and provides reasonable accommodation to the known disabilities of applicants and employees.

The SCI Institute: The SCI Institute is a world-class research institute located within the new Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. We are a highly dynamic, driven group of over 170 faculty, staff, and students.

The overarching goals of the SCI Institute's scientific computing research are to create new techniques, tools, and systems, by which scientists may solve problems affecting various aspects of human life. We believe that to advance the state-of-the-art and create meaningful computational solutions for such complex systems, one needs to advance research in a number of areas within scientific computing, including: visualization, simulation, and modeling.

The SCI Institute presents a highly challenging, collaborative work environment that can be deeply rewarding for the right individual. Further information is available at
