We are interested in both undergraduate and graduate level candidates and currently have a range of professional backgrounds including Engineering, Public Health, Geology, and Political Science.

Our attached flyer includes information on our Analyst position and what our company does; we find that the creative critical thinking aspect of the job is often attractive to those across a field of disciplines.

We will be attending the Science Job & Internship Fair on Thursday, January 30th from 2-5pm in Mary Gates Hall Commons, and would love to speak with any interested students at that time. While this fair is directed at students in the sciences, all are welcome to attend.

If you would like to contact me directly with questions, they can reach me at recruiting.
