Do you want to be someone who enables and facilitates team science? Do you want to support a variety of research questions? Do you want to work at the furthest emerging edges of technology and expertise? Do you want to encourage scientific rigor, reproducibility, and sustainability? If you answered yes to any of these questions, have you considered a career in cores?
Cores, also known as shared research laboratories (SRLs) or shared research resources (SRRs), ignite interdisciplinary research, support sustainability, and provide researchers access to necessary scientific resources and expertise.
