Highly motivated, translation-oriented PhD research scientist in the last stages of a PhD in neuroscience/biomedical sciences. I am highly adaptable, flexible and thrive in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment where I can put my problem-solving/troubleshooting skills to good use.
4+ years as a neuroscientist and cell biologist, exhibiting successful collaborations among multiple laboratories and research groups to design and conduct innovative experiments. My work has helped to understand neurodegenerative disease etiology, and will result in multiple publications.
Experience in scientific writing, use of social media outlets to communicate science, interviewing scientists about their work, attending conferences and summarizing proceedings, knowledge of a wide range of biomedical and public health topics, and a passion for science communication to a broad audience.
Efficient and economical project manager, maximizing productivity in a team of 10+ scientists, communicating goals and directives to multiple undergraduate students and laboratory managers, while simultaneously optimizing experimental protocols to meet project deadlines.
Strong background in life sciences (neuroscience, cell biology) in addition to experience in the fields of pharmacology, biochemistry, and genetics. Research experience in proteomics, CRISPR/Cas gene editing, neurodegenerative disease pathology, histology, confocal miscroscopy, and molecular biology. I am looking to expand my expertise into cancer biology and therapeutics.
My skills as a scientific communicator and team player combined with a motivation to solve problems and develop biomedical therapies/products would be conducive to companies in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area looking to recruit Science Writers, Academic Editors and Project Specialists.
