Imaging Scientist - Electrical / Automation engineer
TissueVision, Inc.
Newton, MA

TissueVision is seeking to hire an Imaging Scientist with a background in electrical engineering or mechatronics to join our microscopy product development team.

TissueVision was founded based on our work at MIT on high-speed 3D tissue imaging. We're a team of collaborative scientists, engineers and programmers who have a passion to apply our expertise towards making better tools for biology. A major problem in biological research is that researchers don't have the right tools to answer crucial questions, especially when investigating the all-important tissue level of biology. The products we've made fill this need and have been used by thousands of scientists in academia and industry across North America, Europe and Asia.

Responsibilities: As part of an interdisciplinary team you will be applying your electrical engineering and mechatronics skills broadly to help develop our next generation imaging and tissue processing hardware and services. This includes PCB board development, programming, automation, interfacing to custom FPGA hardware, and analog electronics. You will also be involved in a cutting edge spectroscopy project combining multi-gigahertz RF analog electronics and FPGA data post-processing of time- resolved fluorescence images.

You will also have the opportunity to work directly with researchers at our TissueMetrics contract research services at in areas such as cancer or Alzheimer's Disease.

Salary is commensurate with experience.
