Software Developer Lead
At the Carboncopies Foundation, we believe that the possibilities and opportunities enabled by Whole Brain Emulation (WBE) represent the most promising technological path to overcoming our fundamental limitations as a species.
To achieve WBE, essential advances are needed in neurobiology, neurophysiology, brain imaging, micro- and nanoscale technologies, computational neuroscience, computing hardware, and even the philosophy of mind. We provide peer networks and project opportunities to scientists working on challenges critical to whole brain emulation and recognize that there is a long road ahead of us.Responsibilities
The Carboncopies Foundation is growing and has recently decided that our Environmental Rendering System (ERS) division should operate more independently. We are looking for someone who can take on some of the managerial tasks of ERS so that our resources can be used more efficiently. As the Lead of the ERS division, you would be part of our neural simulation platform department at the Carboncopies Foundation and join a team consisting of the Leads and Co-Leads of this department.
Your tasks, as the Lead of our ERS division of our neural simulation platform, would include the following:
- Oversight of team
- Onboarding members to the ERS division
- Management of meetings
- Updating our neural simulation platform department as a whole on progress
- Requesting resources from other divisions of our neural simulation platform team
- Creation of status updates for the rest of the Carboncopies organization
The following qualifications and/or experience aren’t required but would be helpful for you in taking on this role:
- Previous experience with team management and leadership positions.
- Previous experience working with/for a non-profit organisation.
Approx. 20 hours / week.

The Carboncopies Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides support to scientists working on challenges critical to whole brain emulation (WBE). We believe that the possibilities and opportunities afforded by WBE represent the most promising technological path to overcoming our fundamental limitations as a species and as individuals.
To promote and accelerate the whole brain emulation, our foundation is focused on:
Encouraging scientific collaboration to create stepping-stone technologies
Publishing reviews of scientific literature and technology developments
Maintaining R&D roadmaps to identify and address scientific and engineering challenges
Increasing general awareness of the human adaptability gap and the possibility that neural prosthesis, whole brain emulation and substrate-independent mind may offer solutions
Hosting conferences or workshops, and providing informational material
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
