We are always looking for outstanding candidates with the ability to provide technical solutions for multiple neurotechnology applications in a cutting edge, multidisciplinary project-based environment.

Open positions

Chief Neuroscience Officer

Position Title: Chief Neuroscience Officer

The Wyss Center is a unique environment in which to develop novel neurotechnology to diagnose or treat nervous system disorders. Our goal is to translate innovative neurotechnology through proof of concept pilot human trials, leading to commercialization. The Center provides financial resources and access to science engineering facilities as well as engineering, neuroscience, clinical, regulatory and entrepreneurship expertise. The CNO will work with this interdisciplinary team to oversee the scientific development of neurotechnology products and their application in reading and interpreting neural, behavioral, and sensory signals or modulating neural circuits in disorders of the nervous system. While the interests of the Center are broadly related to neurotechnology, there is a unique interplay between industry and academic expertise in complex implantable devices. The Center has particular interests in disorders related to movement, sensory loss, pain, and brain circuit disorders, as well as advanced technology (electrode interfaces, electronics, signal processing) needed for long term assessment and modulation of neural function.
