We are an innovative, fast-growing biotechnology company offering the right individual a great opportunity for rapid advancement. We are particularly interested in individuals who understand experimental design as a problem-solving methodology and have an interest in applying that methodology to problems with no obvious solutions. We would prefer a Ph.D. in biology or related field, but will consider appropriately qualified individuals with a BS or MS.
