About Paradromics

We are building a direct data interface with the brain to provide technology solutions to unmet medical challenges. A revolutionary leap beyond today’s research-grade brain computer interfaces (BCI), our Connexus® Direct Data Interface (DDI) collects neural signals at an industry-leading high data-rate and is designed for long-term daily use. Our first clinical application will enable severely motor-impaired people to communicate and independently use a computer, translating their neural signals into synthesized speech, text, and cursor control. We will continue to expand the capabilities of our massively scalable platform to support a pipeline of future applications that could benefit millions.

The Role

The Paradromics Neuroscience team is seeking strongly motivated Research Assistants to contribute to the preclinical testing of our Connexus® Direct Data Interface in large animal models. This role is a temporary position with a fixed period of a year with the possibility of renewal at the end of the contract. This role involves interfacing with veterinarians, neuroscientists, electrical engineers, software engineers, and data engineers. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are crucial for excelling at this role. This role requires an individual with a “can-do,” self-starter attitude. This position is based on-site in College Station, Texas. We are building next-generation brain implants to treat serious conditions in mental and physical health. If you want to use your skills in a positive, impactful way, if you like to be intellectually challenged, and if you want to be surrounded by hard-working and passionate co-workers, this work will be highly fulfilling.
