“Brain Power”, a Neuro-Technology Startup focused on autism, is recruiting Interns in Health Communications, Video & Photo Editing, Social Media, Graphics & Design.
Our powerhouse team at Brain Power is pushing the boundaries of what is thought to be possible in the autism field, and with smartglasses like Google Glass and other headsets. As a neuroscience-based startup, we are combining smartglasses with our patent-pending “Empowered Brain” software to help children with autism, and to give hope to their families.
Our work has already been featured by Google, Autism Speaks, TechCrunch, Wired, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, Boston Globe, and numerous other organizations. As our team expands beyond our core engineering and clinical teams, we have the perfect learning opportunity for arts and communications interns to join us and help us to empower the 1 in 68 children who have autism in the United States.
An Awesome Team
We are a team of leading neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, engineers, business strategists, and of course superhero team members who aim to TRANSFORM the opportunities for children with autism and their families. Check out some of the team members on our main web page. You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from these Harvard and MIT trained experts, and you will liaise directly with our CEO, Dr. Ned T. Sahin, and our VP of Health Strategy and Communications, Dr. Arshya Vahabzadeh. Dr. Sahin is in our Cambridge, MA headquarters, and Dr. Vahabzadeh leads our San Francisco office.
Cutting Edge Equipment
We live and breathe the latest technology, like Google Glass, Microsoft Hololens, Structure 3D scanner, spherical cameras, 3D printers, and our own custom hardware & software. We design, build, 3-D print, and create the next generation of possibilities, completely in-house. We will give our interns the opportunity to become familiar with the technology that they will be tweeting, posting, and circulating in their circles.
Apply your talents to a humanitarian mission, and be part of a positive impact on society. At Brain Power, our currency is smiles, and “Vitamin H” … Hope!
Each day exciting things happen around here. Please see the video below from PBS Newshour when they covered part of our Clinical Trial – and the Mom broke down crying when she suddenly felt more connected with her own child than ever before.
