We recently opened a new microjob position and hired a neuroscientist/molecular biologist/grad student getting ready to defend her thesis. Say hello to Lauren Sakowski. She’ll be doing for us what Ian Street, PhD (@IHStreet) and Andrew Thaler, PhD (@SFriedScientist) did for us last year–create and publish content to our blog.
Lauren is interested in expanding her skill set to potentially land a writing or communications job after she lands her PhD in March. We will help her with that. Expect to see a couple blog posts telling a story about the neuroscience of shopping for a lab.
