Years of Experience:
CytoVeris Inc. is an emerging company formed with the vision to change the paradigm in cancer surgery through the introduction of optical based “guided surgical tools”. Our technology will assist cancer surgeons to discern between cancer tissue and healthy tissue in real-time during surgery and as a result will increase the probability of successful cancer surgery and outcomes. We use a multi-modal approach, including Raman Spectroscopy, to provide an optical “fingerprint” of the tissue to the molecular level. The need we serve, and the technology we employ, are ready now for introduction and broad market adoption.
If you’re inspired by the possibilities of technology to improve patients’ lives and you thrive on working in a dynamic environment where each person can make a significant difference, consider joining our team.
Position:Principal Optical Scientist
CytoVeris, located in central Connecticut, seeks a motivated, inventive and enthusiastic Principal Optical Scientist to support development of biomedical optics technologies including Raman Spectroscopy. This Scientist will support development of new optical imaging and spectroscopic technologies leading to products targeted for use in cancer surgery. This position is a key member of the start-up team, working with the VP of Engineering, as well as the CEO and clinical collaborators to develop and commercialize our products, including designing/conducting pre-clinical and clinical trials.
As an individual contributor, eventually mentoring a small team developing a new generation of optical based medical devices
Providing leadership on designing and implementing novel medical devices, from experimental setup, carrying out experiments, performing data analysis, data extractions and analysis; participate in modifying and optimizing experiments; conceiving new experimental ideas and setting up new experiments; provide suggestions on instrumentation design and or instrumentation improvements based on experimental results
Competitive Base Salary
Competitive vacation and holidays
Flexible spending accounts
Incentive Stock Options
EEO & Employment Eligibility
CytoVeris is committed to equal opportunity in the terms and conditions of employment for all employees and job applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, gender identity or gender expression, national origin, disability or veteran status. CytoVeris also complies with all applicable national, state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment as well as work authorization and employment eligibility verification requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act and IRCA.
The ideal candidate will have an MS or PhD, in an optical technology, with extensive laboratory experience in instrumentation development, characterization, data collection and processing as applied to signal/image processing skills and associated programming
Experience with Raman Spectroscopy, and it’s use for biomedical applications a plus.
Knowledge of other various spectroscopic techniques, such as fluorescence spectroscopy, or other spectroscopic techniques
Experience with light sources, lasers, pulsed lasers, fiber optics, high resolution spectrographs, all types of photo detectors, optical design software & analysis
Understanding of the principles of state-of-the-art spectroscopic instrumentation, and sampling methodologies
Medical device or other safety critical device development and familiarity with FDA and international medical device certification processes is a plus
Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential
A strong publication record is desirable
Experience working in or with a commercial start-up is a plus
Desire for and adaptability to a fast-moving company with a dynamic work environment
CytoVeris has been founded with the vision to develop new optical based ‘guided surgery’ probes to allow surgical oncologists to identify and remove all tumor tissue in real-time during cancer resection surgery, thereby improving the surgeon’s ability to ensure clean margins are attained. We are developing technology to detect molecular signatures that cancer cells create due to the way that they hijack the cellular metabolic processes and corrupt DNA and protein pathways which creates signature variations of molecules such as lipids, proteins and metabolites. CytoVeris’ new OncoMapTM technology platform will assist surgeons in assessing tissue type during surgery, using Raman spectroscopy. This technology provides high molecular specificity – measurement of the Raman spectra can be considered to give the optical fingerprint of a biomolecule.
