Short lived, but very fun position
Research Scientist (Former Employee) – Willimantic, CT – October 19, 2015
As a research scientist for the EES department, my typical day was to go out and take structural measurements and samples of rock outcrops. I learned a great deal about metamorphic geology and the tools and methods used to interpret structural data. My manager was an ECSU Professor, who showed me the ropes and was extremely helpful when it came to interpreting data that I had collected. The best part of this job was getting to work independently out in the field for 90% of the project, and getting to present my research at a conference at ECSU. The hardest part of the job was the physical demands of hiking through thick underbrush all day during the summer, while being stung by hornets and eaten by mosquitoes.
independence, being paid to learn, develop strong relationships with Professors
