Training will be available, but preference will be given to candidates who also have demonstrated skills in: 1) statistical analyses, 2) laboratory analyses, 3) oral and written communication, and 4) effective interaction with a diversity of colleagues and students. The position is for one year with renewal possible contingent on satisfactory performance.
