Our innovative electrophysiology platform measures a vast amount of data from neuronal cells, organoids, and tissue. Due to its high spatial-temporal resolution, our technology can record data with many unique features, such as complete network activity, single-cell action potentials and sub-cellular axonal signals. These unique features allow us to extract novel and more accurate biomarkers which enable faster and more reliable drug discovery than traditional technologies.

Therefore, we are seeking a highly motivated data scientist to join our scientific team, who will support us in analyzing and visualizing data features from microelectrode array (MEA) datasets, preforming electrophysiology recordings and providing some support in cell culturing for our scientific experiments.

Your Responsibilities

  • Analyze previously recorded datasets and identify relevant features
  • Preform statistical analysis (descriptive, inferential, associative, exploratory, etc.) on recorded datasets
  • Data visualization (charts, tables, diagrams, graphs, etc.) of both qualitative and quantitative data
  • Prepare, summarize, and present the experimental results and findings from data interpretation
  • Preform electrophysiology recordings and help with 2D/3D in-vitro cell culturing

Your Profile

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in life sciences, computer science, engineering or related field
  • Any in-vitro laboratory experience is a plus
  • Experience in data and statistical analysis (in electrophysiology is an additional plus)
