Weinberger Lab


The Weinberger Lab is looking for an administrative assistant to join our team. This person will work closely with Leor Weinberger, the lab PI. A successful candidate will be able to work well independently, communicate effectively with others, manage a wide variety of tasks, and possess a keen attention to detail. This job may be a great fit for a recent college graduate who is looking for experience with project management, interfacing with biotech startups/spinouts, or working in a scientific environment. Responsibilities include:

  • Being the lab "social coordinator": planning team events, coordinating new member arrivals to and departures from the lab
  • Maintaining understanding of individuals' and teams' roles at Gladstone to best refer questions and contacts

This person will be expected to wear a wide variety of "hats"; the ideal candidate must be willing to learn and take on unconventional tasks to assist the PI at a very pivotal time for the lab's research.

Preferred qualifications:
  • 1-2 years minimum previous administrative work experience
