The transition continues for the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, as operations staff move and new hires continue to be made.
Communications Director Katie Pawlosky said Thursday on KMAN’s In Focus that they see ongoing shifts in the demographics as the facility moves towards being operational in 18 months.
NBAF Coordinator Dr. Ken Burton adds that leadership has been tasked with getting people up to speed because of remote work mandates implemented when the pandemic started.
Operations Director Patrick Moylan said Thursday on KMAN’s In Focus that the new facility is dramatically different than the one it replaces, located at Plum Island, New York.
Moylan’s been involved in such work for 30 years and appreciates what this facility means for research.
There are up to 50 operations positions that NBAF is seeking to fill. Those job listings can be found at USAJobs.gov.
