C. Neuroscience and Law Graduate Seeking Part/Full-Time Position

My name is Sun Young Won and I am a recent graduate of Boston University with a background in neuroscience and law. I am currently seeking a part-time or full-time position in research, public policy, or health law. I hold a master's degree in neuroscience in addition to a law degree both in the US and South Korea. I have a deep passion and interest in neuroimaging studies and psychiatric research. I hope to find a position where I can combine my background in science and law. I am looking for a position to contribute my analytical skills and diverse experiences to the important work in healthcare research, policy, and compliance to help find ways to bring these fields together.  I welcome the opportunity to connect with those open to having an information interview or discussing potential opportunities with me. I can be reached at I look forward to connecting. Thank you!
