The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a EUR 1 billion European scientific research initiative to improve our understanding of the brain. With more than 500 scientists from 131 European partner institutions across 19 Member States, the HBP is one of the largest projects ever funded by the EU.
The HBP started in 2013, is building the world’s first integrated infrastructure for academic and industrial brain research and development into a single HBP Joint Platform (HBP-JP). A newly created association based in Brussels, named EBRAINS, is to coordinate the HBP and drive the construction and operation of its European research infrastructure for brain research, on behalf of its members.
EBRAINS is now recruiting its Chief Executive Officer.
The EBRAINS CEO will be responsible for leading the EBRAINS AISBL in achieving its objectives by promoting, supporting, and coordinating science in the field of brain research through the creation and operation of a European-led, cutting-edge, ICT-based scientific and medical research infrastructure. The EBRAINS CEO will also be the HBP Director General and as such will direct the management of HBP as a EC FET Flagship project and guide the HBP through its transition to an enduring European research infrastructure.
Candidacies can be sent to CEO_candidature@ebrains.eu, and must include curriculum vitae, letter of motivation, and if relevant a list of publications.
