Extreme Light Laboratory

Business Assistant (summer)

The Extreme Light Laboratory (ELL) is seeking an assistant to work with the business team on various projects related to business development and business management. ELL is at the forefront of international high field physics and laser research, and manages multiple research projects funded by federal grants and contracts. The project manager will work with the assistant to select a summer project that best matches the candidate’s experience and interest, such as conducting a market survey to identify potential collaboratory users or planning a workshop for regional and national subject matter experts.

It is preferred that applicants have experience working in a business setting, or have completed coursework related to project management and/or marketing. Candidates should be self-motivated and detail-oriented, and should be proficient with computers, and basic Microsoft Office software (Outlook, Excel, Word, and Power Point). This position will require 30 hours/wk. (Mon. – Fri. between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) during the summer months. There is potential to earn college credit and to extend the position beyond the summer months with fewer required hours/week. Pay is $12/hr.
