The director is responsible in ensuring the team's progress above all else. Some necessary skills/experiences that will be helpful include:

  • Strong communication skills
  • Scientific literature review
    • Much of the project development requires being critical about not just the paper but yourself, as it's important to set an optimistic but feasible goal
  • Delegation of tasks, as well as the willingness to delegate yourself

Lastly, because the director needs to understand all aspects of the team, both the engineering aspect and outreach aspect, they'll need to learn and understand all aspects of the project. The director's job is not only to pass down tasks, but to act as the bridge between other members.

Application deadline is September 30th, and interviews will be conducted from October 1-8.
