The University of San Francisco (USF) College of Arts & Science is forming a new interdisciplinary undergraduate course with a focus on biotechnology and applied science. This new lecture and lab course is being constructed by a team composed of industry experts in cell-based life science research and existing USF faculty. The goals of the course are to expose undergraduate upper-level science students to this exciting field via unprecedented technology access, hands-on skillset development and an awareness of the life science career path options available after graduation.
USF is seeking a motivated candidate to join the team creating this novel course as a full-time laboratory manager in charge of setup, daily operation, and oversight of the tissue culture (TC) learning laboratory. Candidates should love to learn as much as they love to teach.
