For the past 5.5 years, I’ve been the point person on Sangamo’s strategic alliance with a leading plant biotechnology company, Dow Agrosciences.
It’s been going very well (the attached three papers are, as you might imagine, the tip of the proverbial iceberg).
My colleagues at DAS are hiring, and it immediately occurred to me that the folks at that meeting I spoke at will doubtless find this interesting. I know the group that the opening is in very well, and think it’s a superb opportunity for someone with good hands and excellent work ethic (but, very importantly, no previous industry experience) to make a significant contribution to a major project – again, see attached papers.
Feel free to forward this message to the entire list of attendees at that meeting. Those interested in applying should contact me with an expression of interest, but nothing more – I will then reply with instructions on how to actually apply.
One logistical point – the opening is in Indianapolis – which I’ve visited ca 20 times in the past 5 years, and am impressed with the food, the cultural scene, the infrastructure, etc.
