Very productive to build my career
Research Assistant Professor (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, KSJune 6, 2018
Skillfully focused on wheat and developing molecular markers for marker-assisted selection (MAS), specifically the molecular characterization of disease resistance genes, and by using molecular techniques, identified a strand of rust resistant genes in a wild relative of wheat. Arduously developed a large number of items, some of which include the EST-derived SSR markers, microsatellite-based deletion bin system; a high-density linkage map of Aegliops tauschii, and the D-genome progenitor of bread wheat.
• Vigilantly studied the rust resistant genes and ultimately produced a wheat germplasm resistant to leaf rust by using molecular markers.
• Personally saw to the resistance of Karnal bunt disease in wheat and went on to identify diagnostic markers.

My Job at Kstate
Custodial Specialist (Current Employee) –  Manhattan, KSJune 6, 2018
During school a typical week is cleaning the common spaces and the restrooms for the college students. I have learned that the kids are very messy and that the management talks down to their employees. The hardest part of the job comes in the summer time it is miserable no one likes it. The most enjoyable part is my co workers they are the best.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
short breaks and lunches

At Kansas State University everyone is very willing to help out someone in need. This is why I got involved with the mentor program to help incoming freshman. The mentor program meetings were productive and gave everyone the opportunity to voice their opinion.

Internal cliques made work frustrating
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) –  Salina, KSMay 21, 2018
A few poisonous faculty members (who were overly influential) combined with a university campus losing students and suffering under a reductive legislature makes this campus a place to avoid unless your job is so badly needed that you can rise above it all.
Pros
Good pay for adjuncts
Cons
Too cliquish

Research and Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, KSMay 15, 2018
Good place to work, live, and raise kids. Students are very nice. The only downside is: it is too far from Kansas City international airport (2 hours 30 mins) and Kansas City. It is not easy for your spouse to get a job in in town (Manhattan Kansas).
