Hiring Manager:
I am currently employed at The Ohio State University as a Post Doctoral Research Scientist with an appointment in the Department or Veterinary Biosciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine. I am actively searching for employment as a mid level Research Scientist targeting the Bio-Pharma industry. My area of interest is in basic scientific research in project or assay development, for clinical applications in molecular/cellular biology or virology.
My Ph.D. training as a molecular retrovirologist has exposed me to novel scientific approaches to help answer questions about the mechanisms involved in human retroviral causes of cancer. I have 7 years of combined research experience in industry and academia. This combination of the different research environments has allowed me to perfect my technical skills in molecular/cellular biology in signal transduction as well as transcriptional and translational control. The work I performed at Battelle Memorial Institute in vaccine research, prior to my Ph.D. training, has allowed me to experience bench research translated to therapeutics for clinical applications. Additionally, I am very skilled in immunological, biochemical, and genetic applications utilizing animal models of infection and disease. I have not only proven to be a leader in scientific research at my current institution, but I am more than just a scientist. I have excellent personal communication skills; enjoy public presentations, as well as collaborative interactions with colleagues. This skill set has allowed me to succeed in my personal and professional life and will aid my future success a within your company.
