Graduate Student Co-Op & Post-doc Program
This program is well-suited for candidates who have a Master’s or Ph.D. degree. The candidate must be able to take a leadership role and converse with the PI/CEO at a senior scientific level. The candidate must be undeniably competent in designing, executing, and troubleshooting experiments. Daily managerial activities include reviewing laboratory notebooks, training/overseeing students/technicians, and conducting bench work in a timely manner to meet project deadlines. The candidate must be able to write effectively for project progress reports, manuscript preparation for publications, and coordinating with research collaborators for grant applications.
Meticulous when implementing and updating protocols and manuscripts, with strong attention to detail; however, the candidate must also be able to step back and advise on the overall scientific direction of each research project. That is, the candidate must have the elements of a tactician as well as a strategist on projects. The candidate must be able to communicate effectively and clearly to all Aptagen team members as well as clients via email, on the phone, and in person during any on-site meetings.
