Herophilus is reinventing drug discovery for complex brain disorders by combining human brain models, scaled biology and machine learning to decode brain disease, from genetics to neural computation. We’re building a world-class high-throughput cell culture, microscopy, and bioassay platform that requires integration of industry-standard and custom proprietary robotic systems. We harness the resulting deep biological insights to systematically discover novel drugs for complex neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases with a higher probability of technical success. 

We are seeking excellent computational neuroscientists to join our multidisciplinary team in our search to understand the complex biology of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This role is as a core driver of our scientific mission, bridging between experimental neuroscience and machine learning.

In this position you will:

  • Propose and implement computational models to analyze neural functional activity collected from cerebral organoids
  • Interface with the stem cell biology and bioengineering teams to understand and interpret complex neurological data
  • Mentor and cross-train with ML scientists via academic-style discussions and reviews
  • Participate in team-wide projects as well as lead the design and delivery of independent initiatives
  • Publish results in high-impact journals

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Academic publications in the field of computational and/or systems neuroscience; or 5+ years of industry experience in this area
  • Experience with applying statistics, signal processing, and/or machine learning to neural activity datasets (e.g., multi-electrode arrays, electrophysiology, or calcium imaging)
  • Proficiency in scientific computation (e.g., Python/NumPy, R, MATLAB)

We offer competitive salary, benefits, and opportunities for professional growth in an intellectually stimulating and fast-paced environment. These include medical/dental/vision coverage, 401(k) and FSA plans, a flexible vacation policy, paid parental leave, and support for relevant training.

Herophilus is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
