Job description

Omniscient seeks an experienced, qualified Junior Data Scientist.


Omniscient Neurotechnology is the “Human Connectome Company”.

Headquartered in Australia, Omniscient is a pioneer in Human Connectomics, a field of neuroscience that investigates the structural and functional connections of the human brain. Such study is providing researchers and clinicians the tools to better understand and treat complex neurological and mental disorders in a hyper-personalised way.

Our technology uses routine MRI scans to produce personalised brain maps via patented cloud and machine-learning-based processing techniques. Traits and abnormalities derived from an individual’s brain pathways can allow neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychologists and psychiatrists the ability to make more accurate diagnosis and create personalised treatment plans for all brain-related disorders.

Our products deliver these maps with enterprise-grade efficiency and usability, enabling broader access to vital subject-specific neurological insights. These insights are rapidly changing the research, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases such as depression, anxiety, dementia, chronic pain, cancer, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, ADD, ADHD, PTSD & TBI.

Since founding, we have grown exponentially and achieved several world-firsts, such as the development of the world’s first Connectomic neurosurgical planning platform to be cleared by regulatory bodies. Today, we are building the world’s most advanced repository of brain imaging data to facilitate researchers globally with the goal of using machine learning to explore the brain’s 100 billion connections.

With continued development, we intend to improve the lives of billions with both medical and non-medical products and services that drastically change how the human brain is understood, treated, and even enhanced.

To achieve our goals we have recruited a high-caliber team of professionals in Australia, USA, China, and Canada and are continuing to grow our team globally.
