For any of my friends with a biology background who are looking for a job and are a reasonable distance from Richmond: One of the other techs here at Contra Costa College just got accepted to medical school and will be leaving us sometime in August. This means that there's going to be an opening here, minimum qualifications are a B.S. in Biology or a related field and two years of experience working in a lab. The position will likely start out hourly (no benefits), and is currently 28 hours/week. I know the department wants to offer a permanent position, but that may take longer than the start of the school year. Contact me if you're qualified and interested and I'll put you in touch with the appropriate people. Since this was the position I started in, I can also give a general idea of what's involved if anyone wants to know. I will say that I quite enjoy working here and the particular job, so I recommend the place to others.
