We received many wonderful applications and currently have two WMU students working PT for us. As states open up and businesses get back to work our sample volume is increasing, and we need additional Lab Assistants in both our Screening Lab and our Confirmation Lab.

I have attached the job description. The Screening Lab is a part-time position (9a-1p) and the Confirmation Lab is part-time up to full-time for the summer. Our hope is that the student would be able to continue part-time in the school year or at least return for school breaks in winter, spring, and the following summer.  Today I will be opening this position on Handshake again for two weeks. Students can email me their resume or apply through Handshake. I appreciate any assistance you could offer. Make it a great day and stay well!
