Resourceful place to do research

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee)
Richland, WA

ProsThere is a lot of funding and thus a lot of resources than a typical research lab in a university. And there are people from different backgrounds that can help you from different angles. Overall, it is a good place to work.

ConsUsually, there are too many samples to run on limited instrument, and you need to wait a long time to get your results and get your research moving forward.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
