Who we are:

NeuCyte is an early stage biotechnology company that focuses on developing treatments for those suffering from neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. We develop translatable cell-based assays for modelling neuro related disorders using patient-derived and genetically-engineered neural cell types to discover novel therapeutics. Based on our SynFire® technology, our proprietary human neural in vitro platforms assess complex electrophysiological and

morphological readouts suited for target identification and validation, as well as drug efficacy testing.

What we're looking for: 

We seek a highly motivated Scientist with strong mammalian cell culture experience to join our team. Applicants must be able to keep up with the fast pace of a small biotech startup and work on multiple projects at a time.
