  • Act as lead trainer for the nucleic acids extraction team. Should have availability to perform training across all shifts (AM, PM, weekend)
  • Implement strong continuous improvement in the extraction workflow
  • Work to maintain CLIA/CAP compliance for equipment, reagents, and all lab processes
