Why hire us?

The classical approach:

Hiring an intern, PhD student or postdoc typically involves:

- A time consuming hiring process

- Possibly having to train someone without much experience

- A fixed-time contract, without much flexibility

Working with us:

When hiring us, you can:

- Instantaneously have at your disposal a team of experienced researchers, data scientists, software engineers and AI engineers

- Work with us for as short or as long a period as you need

Our team consists of:

Olivier Mirat

Olivier created the first version of ZebraZoom in 2013 during his PhD and has since continued working on tracking, behavior, and other biological and heath data analysis or AI-related projects.

Claire Wyart

Claire is an accomplished neuroscience professor at the Paris Brain Institute; she's an expert in zebrafish, behavior and optogenetics. Her lab studies the circuits underlying the control of locomotion.

Ante Sikic

Ante is an expert Python programmer, who specializes in the creation of easy to use Graphical User Interfaces and who is responsible for the latest version of ZebraZoom's graphical user interface.
