A brand new institute with a bit of a rocky start
Research Assistant IV/ Lab Manager (Former Employee), Jupiter, FLJune 17, 2013
Pros: good science and new equipment
Cons: site issue and the temporary facility was not top notch
A typical day at work consisted of tissue culture, management of the lab,and cell based screens.
I learned a tremendous amount about starting up a lab and facility.
The management of the institute was from California and it was a little difficult without them on site.
My coworkers were really great,talented people devoted to the research.
The hardest – more... part about working there was that the permanent site for the institute was challenged in court and had to be abandoned. The uncertainty of this issue was a bit overwhelming.
The most enjoyable part of the jobs was working with some really amazing people. – less

Great working environment.
Research Assistant/Lab Manager/Safety Officer (Current Employee), La Jolla, CAMarch 5, 2013
Collaborative team. Always look forward to going to work. Communication between lab research groups always encouraged through internal postings - it provided a good support system. The hardest part is lack of job security with the present US economy and lack of grant funding by NIH.
