The Opportunity

As a Research Scientist at LifeBell AI, you will develop and implement signal processing and other software algorithms in the healthcare data arena. Your work will include processing raw data from LifeBell and other sensors deployed on patients in a clinical setting to derive medical indicators that help predict sepsis and other serious conditions. Additionally, you will likely work on related machine learning tasks and hardware interfaces.

You'll work closely with our Chief Research Officer, Chief Science Officer, data science team, and engineering team. You’ll join a tight-knit group that values collaboration, continuous improvement, and solving challenging technical and product problems in an emerging space. Plus, we like to have fun along the way.
