Highly functional team, great knowledge and skills learnt
Laboratory/Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hamilton East, Waikato20 October 2014
there isn't really a typical day that describes all the activities and skills that i have learnt at NIWA. There was a lot of field work, lab experiments, training of different lab equipment, collaborating ideas and knowledge as a team. Was the best experience gained as got to see the project all the way through till the end, and establish my name on a publication.
Pros
great experience, access to company cars, lots of opportunity to take on co-worker knowledge, researching experience
Cons
fixed term
