Scientific Recruiting Is a Pain

You know that hiring top scientific talent is critical to your business, but a host of challenges exist:

If you're looking for

Entry-Level Candidates

You're often swamped with resumes and have to spend hours weeding through them to figure out who's relevant and who's not.

If you're looking for

Senior / Executive Candidates

You spend countless hours trying to find candidates that have the skills and experience you need.

(Or pay an expensive recruiter to do it for you.)

We know these challenges because we've lived them. Founded by former biotech executives, SciBase uses crowdsourced data to identify top scientists and facilitate better research.

We Make It Easier

Our recruiting services are unlike anyone else's in the industry:

Focused

We focus solely on M.S. and Ph.D.-level scientific positions.

Data-Driven

We use novel, data-driven processes to identify and present only the best candidates.

Peer-Reviewed

All candidates have their scientific work pre-screened by at least 3 Ph.D. experts in their field.

Comprehensive

We specifically evaluate depth of knowledge, experimental skills, communication, & personality.

We do things differently.

Unlike most recruiters, we both identify and evaluate candidates based upon both their scientific ability and other traits that are likely to make them a top performer.

The Secret Is In Our Process

The secret to our process lies in our crowdsourced scientific review platform. Our platform is like "Yelp for Science": scientists can review any paper across a number of key dimensions, such as reproducibility. Other scientists then read those reviews and rate their quality. Our platform aggregates that data to help researchers find the best papers...and help you find the best scientists.

While there are many reasons why we created this platform, we believe one of the biggest benefits is that it can help companies evaluate researchers based upon the quality of their science, not just their resume.

Here's How It Works

User Profile
Step #1

Profile

As we source candidates, we ask them to complete a profile on our platform, which includes a complete list of all their publications.


Step #2

Review

We also ask the candidate to review three papers that they themselves have tried to reproduce as a part of their research.

Review

Rate a Review
Step #3

Rate

Other scientists in turn provide reviews on the candidate's academic publications, as well as rate the quality of the reviews that the candidate provided.


Step #4

Analysis

Through a proprietary process, we utilize this data to identify the scientists who are the best fit for the position and provide you with the top matches.

User Profile Analysis

This process helps ensure
that all candidates we provide you will be:

Interested

Candidates have demonstrated a willingness to put in the effort necessary to highlight their work.

Qualified

The candidate's scientific work has been evaluated by other PhD's in their respective fields*.

*Helpful when you don't already have in-house expertise.

Communicative

New content provide evidence of the candidate's scientific and communication sklls.

Confident

The candidate has demonstrated a willingness to submit their work to examination by their peers.

Most recruiters can only provide you with a resume that fits the job description.

We'll provide you with a person that fits the job.

Why Most Recruiters Struggle With Highly Technical Hires

A few years ago (before SciBase was founded), one of our executives was leading a search for a specialist in synthesizing polymers for high temperature applications. He had hired a recruiter to aid with the search, but it has been about 8 weeks and no solid candidates had some through. Exasperated, he decided to start doing some digging himself. After a few hours, he had come across someone who appeared to be the perfect candidate: a senior level chemist with significant experience synthesizing and formulation high-temperature expoxys. He reached out to the candidate directly, who seemed interested in the position.

Next time he saw the recruiter, he gave this candidate's profile to the recruiter as an example of the kind of person they were looking for. To his surprise, the recruiter told the executive that he had actually come across this candidate a few weeks ago, but didn't think that he was a good fit. Surprised, the executive asked the recruiter why. "Because he doesn't have any experience with polymers!" It turned out that the recruiter did not realize that epoxys were a type of polymer; instead - like far too many recruiters - he simply had been looking for a specific set of "keywords", without really understanding what he was looking for.

This is why traditional recruiters often struggle with highly technical hires: they simply don't have the in-depth understanding of the subject matter required.:

Recruiters often have trouble identifying candidates who don't exactly match the "keywords" in your job description.

Recruiters are even less effective in evaluating a candidate's actual scientific abilities.

We'll find you the right Ph.D. for your position in less time.
Guaranteed.
