About Inscopix

Inscopix is pioneering a new paradigm in the quest to understand the brain and its diseases. Combining revolutionary technology and methods for the imaging of large-scale neural activity in a naturally behaving subject, Inscopix has developed the enabling means to relate causal neural circuit dynamics to corresponding behavior. With its nVista and nVoke products, Inscopix is today disseminating these capabilities to neuroscientists across the world, empowering them to gather unprecedented data and to make new scientific discoveries. With strategic collaborators and partners, Inscopix is at the same time developing in vivo neuropsychiatric disease assays and stands on the brink of making fundamental breakthroughs on treatments for brain diseases such as autism and schizophrenia.

Job Description

Inscopix has developed a miniaturized, real-time, brain mapping platform - enabling radically new approaches to understanding the brain.  The Company is not only advancing the mechanistic understanding of the brain at the level of neural circuits and networks, but also paving the way for incisive new insights into healthy brain function and next generation diagnostic treatments and therapeutics for brain disorders.


We are seeking a Software Engineering Intern to design and develop the next generation of neuro-imaging, processing and visualization software.  You will collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of neuroscientists, data scientists and engineers from software, mechanical, optical and electrical engineering fields to design and develop robust, high-performance video processing and visualization applications.  You will also work closely with product management to translate functional requirements into production software.
