Description:

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.
