This is a training program for international candidates who have a Ph.D. degree.
The candidate must be able to converse with the PI/CEO at a senior scientific level.
The candidate must be undeniably competent in designing, executing, and troubleshooting experiments. Daily activities include:
- Training in molecular biology, chemistry, and/or aptamer research and development techniques

- Conducting bench work in a timely manner to meet project deadlines
The candidate will be trained to write effectively for project progress reports, prepare manuscripts for publication, and coordinate with research collaborators for grant applications.
The candidate must be meticulous when implementing and updating protocols and manuscripts, with strong attention to detail; however, they must also be able to step back and contribute to the overall scientific direction of each research project.
