Deborah's requirements:
I am really hoping to get someone in with sequencing experience that has also worked as a technical writer in a regulated environment. I also don't want to bring someone on with too much experience or who is at too high of a level because they might get resentful at having to do some of the tedious aspects of the job. I need someone that can roll up their sleeves and get the job done no matter what it is, which is pretty much a requirement for anyone working at IVS J
