- The person will be involved in all aspects of the research facility, including live-feed, algae, larval rearing, nutrition, and fish health trials as well as daily tasks that include general maintenance of the recirculation systems, water quality testing, sample weighing, feeding, dissections, and other experimental requirements.
- The candidate will also need to work on drafting and preparing standard operating procedures (SOP), manuals, and training guides, as well as potentially assisting in the training of foreign students that come to the R&D facility each year for internships.
