Easy Apply Ended

Our client based in Brentford is seeking a Senior Data Scientist (Spiking Neural Networks) to join their team.

MFK Recruitment has successfully recruited 4 individuals to the team in the past 3 years, all 4 candidates are still with the company and enjoying their roles!

The Senior Data Scientist will work on-site in Brentford (they will likely be moving office to London in the coming months), you will be working on fascinating projects mainly for clients in the Defence sector. Remote working is offered 1 day every fortnight.

My client delivers systems that can perceive and understand the world with the same semantic richness as the human brain and using the same neural mechanisms they believe are at work in the brain.

Their approaches are inspired by their recent advances in theoretical neuroscience, which are beginning to deliver an understanding of how the brain makes sense of the world.

My client requires a Senior Data Scientist with a passion for both technology and the development of practical usable applications to join a growing project team. The project team will work on the development of a Spiking Neural Network (SNN) Engine designed for practical engineering applications.

The successful applicant will have current experience working on the development of SNNs, with strong coding skills in C++ and a knowledge of Cuda. Experience in Python and Pytorch would also be valuable. Postgraduate or post-doctoral experience in working on SNNs would be an advantage. Experience working on SNN development in a commercial setting would also be valued.

If you join our team, you will have the opportunity to interact with and contribute to work on the cutting edge of research through the development of key core component technologies required by the company. When you push out your code, you will be able to see the results of your efforts through your impact on product development and the enrichment of key customer relationships. You will contribute to the system design process and work towards the delivery of our collective business goals. Your code and your work will have a very direct, measurable impact on achieving those goals.
