Job Description

The Quantified Experience (QX) team is seeking a human vision scientist with extensive prior interdisciplinary scientific experience. The position involves leading end-to-end studies with human participants & modeling of low-level visual processing by the eye & the brain. You will investigate the perceptual & experiential consequences of technical trade-offs in mixed reality & provide direction for technical innovations. Candidates must be able to creatively apply fundamental knowledge from human vision science but also from psychology and/or neuroscience and/or optometry. 

The QX team informs leadership & other teams on perceptual best practices & works closely with other departments such Systems, Optical Engineering, Health Care, Human Factors & UX/UI teams. We are looking for candidates who are creative, energetic team players who excel in a fast-paced, hands-on environment. We offer a competitive salary & excellent benefits.
