Sonera is building state-of-the-art magnetic sensors that can be
used in ambient conditions at room temperature while maintaining
high sensitivity. We are looking for a talented and driven
neuroscientist to join our research efforts and work closely with
our hardware and software engineers towards developing a novel
biosensing system using these solid-state magnetic sensors. The
work will initially concentrate on designing physiological
experiments, collecting data using existing third-party systems,
and developing algorithms for analysis. As Sonera sensors come
online the focus will transition to adapting the experimental
pipeline to custom built hardware and providing input on sensor
design decisions for effective neuroscience applications. The ideal
candidate will have experience with neuroscience research and
signal analysis as they will play a hands-on role in experimental
design as well as both data collection and analysis. This person
should be comfortable independently determining the direction of
projects, evaluating a variety of potential solutions, and making
progress towards open-ended problems.Typical base salary is in the
$130,000 to $180,000 range alongside generous equity compensation
through participation in Sonera's Equity Incentive Plan; actual
salary can be more or less than the posted range and will be
determined based on the individual's applicable skills, education,
qualifications and experience for the role.
