Your tasks

In addition, you assist with treatments and interventions in consultation with the trial managers and veterinarians. We attach great importance to respectful and responsible treatment of our laboratory animals.
In addition, all trainees take part in internal training (Word, Excel, PP courses), training on learning and communication strategies, and team training.
