it's better to have an advanced degree in here
lab assistant (Former Employee) –  La Jolla, CAOctober 11, 2014
People are really friendly, but as an undergraduate, I highly recommend you to have at least a master degree. Otherwise it will be hard to balance your life and work.

Researchers were energetic and friendly. I learned a lot of new strategies and skills at there. As the scale of laboratory was small, I could experience several kind of things like management, equipment maintenance and so on. But sometimes those works made me so busy.
