[Histonet] lab manager position

Victor Tobias victor <@t> pathology.washington.edu
Fri Feb 23 17:10:08 CST 2007

I thought I'd throw in my .02. I was the manager there from 1990-99. 
WADDL is a great organization, staffed with exceptional people. The 
workload was very diverse among species and there was a broad range of 
research projects. This is an academic facility with residents in 
training. The only reason I left was to relocate near the grandkids. 
This is small college town living, population approx. 30,000. The 
summers are very quiet with the students gone. For you sports fans, 
Cougar basketball is currently ranked #10 and the football team holds 
its' own in the PAC-10. The closest big town is Spokane to the north. 
Definite 4 season weather. Feel free to contact me if you have any
