Research Associate, Biodesign

Our mission at Precision Neuroscience is to develop and commercialize brain-computer interfaces. Founded by one of the co-founders of Neuralink and backed by venture capital, our company is pursuing minimally invasive approaches to BCI to address major unmet clinical needs. We are well-capitalized and have an IP portfolio that has been built over nearly 10 years. We plan to address previously intractable medical conditions such as refractory epilepsy, blindness, paralysis, cognitive impairment, and impulse-control disorders.

Brain-computer interfaces represent a new frontier in medicine and computing. We seek to establish Precision Neuroscience as one of the leading companies in this space globally. Our core objective is to deliver life-changing technology to millions of patients worldwide, and in doing so to transform the ways we interact with machines, one another, and our world.

We are seeking a Research Associate, Biodesign to drive our needs assessment activity. This is a rare opportunity to play a key role in improving patients’ lives by integrating cutting edge science with an empathic and creative approach.

You will receive guidance and advice from our executives as well as external advisors who are experts in the Biodesign process.

This position can be based in our Mountain View or NYC office. You must be physically present in the United States to apply.
