Specific Technologies has developed a disruptive new paradigm to identify and monitor cells based on their metabolic signature. The company’s technology enables the inexpensive and accurate identification of cell type, mutation variant, and further monitors cell metabolic output during growth, with applications in infectious disease diagnosis, pharmaceutical selection and drug discovery. Our first product, SpecID®, is a disruptively superior platform for the assessment of blood infection causing sepsis. Sepsis is the most expensive condition treated in hospitals, >$20B , kills more than prostate cancer, breast cancer and HIV/AIDS combined, with a mortality rate estimated at 28% to 50%. Time of the essence mortality increases every hour until the effective antibiotic is determined. Specific Technologies has demonstrated identification of infectious organisms more than 4 times faster, 2 days sooner, than standard methods and before other molecular or protein methods even start, further we do so with less labor and no new instruments.
This is an opportunity to join us at a formative time of company growth. We are a small group, you will not have 5 bosses, rather you will be expected to work independently. You will not be narrowly defined as one cog in one large project; rather you will effectively contribute to multiple projects.
Software is at the core of our company. We are developing a suite of tools that can acquire, process and analyze high volumes of multi-dimensional data. Development challenges start with image capture, image processing, rendering images into large data sets. We use concepts from machine learning and data mining to analyze the multi-dimensional data and dynamic, data driven solutions, to visualize patterns as well as outcomes obtained from statistical analysis and data mining.
This is an outstanding opportunity to be part of not only a dynamic and exciting company, but also to be part of a great team putting together state of the art software.
We are looking for Computer Sciences student or graduate for a part or full time position. If you thrive on learning, if you are smart, dynamic, if you are well adaptable to changes and new ideas and if you are willing to work hard – this is a good fit for you. Creating new-to-the-world, impactful products requires passion, smarts, strength, persistence, and hard work. You should be able to solve difficult problems and get big things done. If you just sat next to the guy who did it, do not apply, you will not succeed.
We will love you even more if you are knowledgeable with the following:
1. Programming: C#, WPF, Python, R, Matlab, MySQL
2. Statistics, machine learning/ Pattern classification, Signal/Image processing
If you are this exceptional rare breed and up for the challenge, please contact us.
Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor any type of visa applicants - this position is open to permanent residents and US citizens only.
