Eyewire is a citizen science project that launched in 2012 from MIT. It is played by over a quarter million people worldwide. We’re now a part of Princeton and are one of the world’s leading neuroscience endeavors, making discoveries about how neurons translate information from the world outside the brain into something an animal understands. We sit at the intersection of neuroscience, machine learning, crowdsourcing, and design.
Our small team works out of a sweet office space in downtown Boston right next to South Station. With this size comes great freedom and autonomy that you won’t get working at a large company. Applicants must live in or be willing to relocate to Boston for this opportunity.
Eyewire is a leader in neuroscience visualization and has been featured in numerous publications ranging from WIRED to the front page of the New York Times. Our VR experiences have been shown at the TED Conference, Tribeca Film Festival, and the United Nations.
