Great place to be creative with solutions
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Manhattan, KSFebruary 6, 2014
Because this is an academic research position, there are many opportunities to try out many different creative solutions. It's difficult to manage school/work especially when trying to coordinate with others who are doing the same. At the same time, it has been nice to be able to focus on my studies while maintaining a position at the university.
