Productive workplace with amazing people around
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – January 3, 2016
As a Graduate Research Assistant, I was given a new project on Breast Cancer to lead and complete. As I was part of a new lab, I helped set up the lab and was given the responsibility of placing orders for all the consumables in the lab.
I learnt skills like mammalian cell culture, photolithography techniques, immunoassays, and microscopy as part of the project. I also, acquired problem solving skills during the project completion and leadership qualities since I had to train and mentor undergraduate students on lab procedures. I learnt how to handle multiple responsiblities at a time, being a research assistant as well as a full time student at the same time. Enhanced communication skills while dealing with students and professors. I was helped immensely by my amazing lab mates and my wonderful mentor without whom I would not have been able to complete the innovative project.
Good mentor, obtained technical skills as well as people skills
