Data Scientist, Sensor Fusion

Data Scientist, Sensor Fusion

The Early Signal (EaSi) team at Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) develops analytical systems and machine learning pipelines focused on time series data streams from wearable and/or biometrically-oriented devices and sensors. Such devices capture a range of biophysical information that can be mined and explored to better understand how to monitor and forecast various emotional, disease, and cognitive states with focus on brain health.

We are looking for a sensor/signal-oriented data scientist to help implement novel and creative solutions in health care using cutting edge tools and algorithms. We are especially interested in applicants who have prior experience working with sensor data (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, imaging, EEG, PPG, etc) to discover patterns and build predictive models using techniques from a variety of disciplines, such as digital signal processing, machine learning, and causal modeling.


  • Collaborate with a team of data scientists, researchers, and clinicians to provide solutions for analyzing data from home sensors, wearable devices, and clinical instruments.
  • Develop, implement, and optimize algorithms for sensor fusion and predictive modeling, leveraging techniques from time series analysis, digital signal processing, machine learning, and deep learning
  • Strategize and develop data ingestion pipelines and processes.
  • Contribute to study design and data collection strategies.
  • Conduct research and support software development projects.
  • Stay up to date with relevant research and technologies.
  • Participate as needed in PoC studies including testing of devices to assess their comfort, ease of use, data quality, and suitability for the organization’s purposes.


  • Master’s or a higher science degree in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Machine Learning, or any other related quantitative field. Equivalent working experience is also acceptable for the position.
  • In-depth knowledge of deep/machine learning and digital signal processing methods for time series, forecasting, and predictive modeling applications
  • A minimum of 2 years’ experience developing data-driven software products, predictive models, and research in the context of healthcare, medical data capture, wearable technology, telehealth, robotics, or other relevant disciplines (e.g., weather forecasting, remote sensing, etc).
  • Experience working with, creating, and curating large data sets stemming from a variety of sources
  • Ability to work in multidisciplinary teams and multitask environment.
  • Proficiency in Python (preferred) or R; Experience with other analytical tools and programming languages.
