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.

Opportunities at SCI

Join one of the most exciting and groundbreaking research environments. The Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute focuses on interdisciplinary research by harnessing the most advanced computer technology to solve the most challenging problems in science. The SCI Institute is truly a multidisciplinary environment, bringing together internationally recognized experts in cardiology, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, physics, mechanics, geology, mathematics, and computer science. We seek to create new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems that enable solutions to problems affecting many aspects of human life.

SCI Institute researchers also apply many of the above computational techniques within their own particular application domains, including fluid dynamics, atmospheric dynamics, biomechanics, cardiac and neural electrophysiology and bioelectric fields, inverse problems, and medical imaging.

If you share our passion and have the talent and drive, you could be part of our team. We are currently seeking the best candidates to fill our open positions. Please see if any of them are right for you. We look forward to hearing from you.

If you are a student interested in joining a research project/group at SCI, please review the faculty list (link) and identify those who pursue research that interests you. Then contact those faculty individually by email and please include in that message:
  1. A summary of your interests and ambitions, both technical/scientific and educational, and
  2. A resume that includes your past experience and especially the courses you have completed

Graduate Student Research Assistantships
