Cha­rité - Ein­stein Cen­ter for Neur­os­cien­ces Ber­lin

We are an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary lab wit­hin the Neur­os­cience Rese­arch Cen­ter at the Char­ité

Animal com­mu­nic­a­tion / Machine learn­ing / Lan­guage mod­el­ing

Work­ing field:

Study acous­tic com­mu­nic­a­tion, col­lect­ive beha­vior and swarm intel­li­gence in one of the smal­lest ver­teb­rates: a mini­ature singing fish. 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 Haupt­bahnhof.


  • Track anim­als in the aquar­ium using com­puter vis­ion and acous­tic tri­an­gu­la­tion
  • Ana­lyze beha­vi­oral pat­terns and vocal­iz­a­tions using machine learn­ing / lan­guage mod­el­ling
  • Help us under­stand fish lan­guage

These tasks (and other pro­jects in the lab) could also lead to thesis pro­jects.

Please visit for more inform­a­tion about the lab or for a video of the spe­cies.


  • Self-motiv­ated, inde­pend­ent, organ­ized, sci­ence-driven and a team worker
  • Pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence in Python and tensor­flow
  • Machine learn­ing / deep learn­ing / com­puter vis­ion skills
  • Exper­i­ence with one or more of the fol­low­ing (or strong motiv­a­tion to learn): time series mod­el­ing, sequence mod­el­ing, seq2seq, neural machine trans­la­tion, lan­guage mod­el­ing
  • Can­did­ates must be able to com­mu­nic­ate in Eng­lish

What we of­fer:

  • Flex­ible HiWi con­tracts for stu­dents
  • Or Min­i­jobs for non-stu­dents

How to ap­ply:

Email your CV, tran­scripts and a brief (≤ 300 words) motiv­a­tion let­ter to and include "[hiwi-applic­a­tion]" in the email sub­ject. Please men­tion where you saw this ad and how many hours per month you would like to work (range). If some of your work is access­ible online (e.g on git­hub), please include a link.
