Nia Therapeutics is developing implantable brain stimulation devices to restore memory function after brain injury and degenerative disease. Our technology was developed at the University of Pennsylvania with funding from DARPA and our team has demonstrated proof of concept for improving human memory across multiple clinical studies. Our technology has the potential to help patients by improving their memory function, reducing disability and increasing on-the-job performance. Our team includes leaders in the fields of biomedical engineering, cybersecurity, neuroscience, and neurosurgery.


We are looking for a hands-on electrical engineer who enjoys solving challenging problems to develop implantable and wearable components of our smart, connected neurostimulation platform for treating memory impairment. You will take a leadership role in architecting and designing the company's implantable and wearable components of our medical device from an engineering prototype to clinical evaluation and will work closely with multi-functional engineering teams and executive staff. You will gain a deep understanding of the system requirements and research, design, develop, build, and test the electrical components of the system.
