Biochemical Engineer preferred but Research Contributor if found under-qualified

1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Why do you want to be a part of the Czerka family?

I have spent several years during peace time and in the restarted war searching the galaxy for interesting finds of scientific and archeological natures. More than once I have come into contact with Czerka teams and have been awed at the equipment they employ as well as the efficiency in which they use them. I have quite a bit of lab experience having worked on Taris, Coruscant, Quesh, and Voss (the technobeasts made by the Gormak are fascinating!). I have even seen the Sith station The Arcanum (don't tell the Empire) I've even seen what the Sith artifacts known as the Seeds of Rage can do (the prospect of weaponizing something like that is quite an exciting thought). If given access to Czerka lab facilities and equipment I am sure I would be a welcome asset.

2. At Czerka, we pride ourselves on our accomplishments. Please name three of your accomplishments that you are most proud of. (Please do not include family milestones such as marriages or the birth of your children.)

1) Recovering ancient Sith Holocrons from a dig near Sith Space
2) Successfully taming a Gormak techno-vorantikus without Gormak aid with minimal loss of life to my research team.
3) Using quesh venom to enhance kolto's healing ability. Again...with minimal loss to post-vorantikus research team.

3. How did you go about achieving the accomplishments above. Would you say you would do "whatever it takes" for success?

1) I contracted with the Imperial Reclamation Service through a Bounty Hunter contact I know who has worked with the Empire in the past. With the right...monetary coaxing I was granted dig permits. I uncovered two Sith Holocrons detailing alchemy and "creating monsters" according to my Force sensitive assistant's study into the Holocrons.

2) While on Voss my team and I ventured to the borders of the Gormak Lands and with a healthy balance of ion grenades and snares we were able to capture a vorantikus that the Gormak had turned cyborg. While it was unconscious we were able to map it's neural network and how the tech was grafted and with the correct stimuli tamed the creature! Only 3 assistants were killed.

3) Quesh venom is toxic, we all know this. But with the right tweaking makes great adrenals. Again, we know this. Well... Put slightly refined venom into kolto and what do you get? After 2 attempts a great new product! Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Proper compensation was sent to the families of the two first test subjects.

4. Would you say you have a strong moral compass? Do you think this could get in the way of your job, should you be asked to do something...questionable?

I would do anything for Science.

5. You are about to enjoy our wide variety of complimentary cocktails and snacks, when you notice that your esteemed colleague's newest experiment is likely to break out of their confines while you are gone. How would you handle this situation?

Well, Sullustan Gin in hand, I would quickly assess the situation. Can I turn it in my favor to be the "hero"? Would said heroic advance me further? If yes I would take whatever action (without harm to myself) to take credit for any successes. If too hazardous I would lock the lab and initiate a full cleanse. Making sure to note in my incident report that the fault squarely sit with my colleague.
Anything for SCIENCE!
