Position: Medical Animator

Annual Salary: $60,000-$95,000

Location: North America (telework)

Who We Are:

Microverse Studios is a 3D animation studio specializing in molecular and cellular biology, primarily serving the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. We have been in production since 2005, combining gorgeous cinematography with deep science.

Who Should Apply:

We’re looking for an experienced biomedical animator to join our team, someone with a proven track record of creating animations from beginning to end, as well as working seamlessly on collaborative projects. The ideal candidate will have exquisite artistic vision and demonstrate strong 3D animation skills with a keen eye for composition, lighting and scene design. This is not an entry level position.

We want to see extraordinary creativity, and the ability to capitalize on motion, shape, texture and lighting to create and control mood and emotion.

Skills and Responsibilities:

All projects will require significant in-depth research into microanatomy, cellular and molecular biology, so applicants must be familiar with the process of finding and citing scientific literature to support their work.

Microverse Studios operates in a PC, Cinema 4D, Redshift and Adobe products environment. Immediate proficiency with these tools is preferred. Superior draftsmanship for producing storyboards is also a plus.

Critical requirements:

  • Applicants must have a masters’ degree in medical illustration.
  • Applicants must be able to provide animation samples of the highest production quality.
  • Applicants must have strong organizational skills.
  • Applicants must have access to high-speed internet in their home office.
  • Applicants must be comfortable collaborating with team members on projects in every phase of production.
  • Applicants must be competent in producing animations from start to finish with minimal oversight.


What We’re Offering:

Microverse Studios enjoys a distributed office, so this is a full-time, telework position. We will provide a powerful workstation, software, and rendering resources, as well as a subculture of support, creativity, and artistic growth.

Benefits are negotiable and include health insurance allowance, reimbursement for AMI and other professional memberships, and a generous and flexible holiday and vacation schedule.
