POSITION:

Research Associate

Please accept my resume for the research technician job, or any other position that would be suitable for me. I am confident that my background and skills in research techniques will prove to be an effective match for your qualifications.

I have had a great deal of laboratory experience in chemistry and biology, both indoors and in the field. In the lab, I have performed chemical reactions and I am currently using microscopes to observe many specimens. In environmental field studies, I have conducted outdoor labs to assess water chemistry.
