Advancing methods to better cryopreserve organs will reimagine pressing medical needs, like organ transplantation, and help ensure humanity’s well-being far into the future. Lorentz Bio is an early stage, well-funded deeptech startup working to make fundamental advances in organ cryopreservation. Joining us provides a rare opportunity to conduct cutting edge research in an industry setting with none of the typical restrictions on staffing associated with an academic environment.
We are hiring a neurobiologist to conduct key experiments and test the function of organs following cryopreservation. You will work closely with a world-renowned cryobiologist who will train you in state of the art methods and don’t need prior experience in cryobiology.
Who you are:
- You are obsessed with assaying brain function. You should be deeply interested in, and have thought about the nuances involved in assaying the function of the brain at different spatial scales, and in different conditions. You don’t have to have personally run assays at all scales, but you should be interested in doing pioneering work which requires a team of experts to assay function at all scales (spatial transcriptomics through MRI/EEG).
- You are motivated by improving human health, and optimistic about our ability to make significant breakthroughs in our lifetime. You should have a deeply scientific approach to moonshot project claims - interested in ambitious projects by default, but calibrated to the evidence required for the claims being made.
- You have a collaborative mindset. Ideally, you’ve worked with others on hard projects you can tell us about in the past. Building hard tech with a team is the metric for success.
- Experience performing surgery
- Experience with EEG and other measures of whole brain activity
- Good but not required:
- Experience building mechanical/electrical systems on the job to support your work
- Experience with organ perfusion
- Experience with histology
- Knowledge of angiology
