I figured it out.
To embed Javascript put it into the currently used ipython profile's 
"/static/custom" directory, i.e., for the default profile something like

And then edit the custom js and css files:

$([IPython.events]).on('app_initialized.NotebookApp', function () { 

@import url("mycss.css");

Sorry for the spam,
