The intern will also have the ability to lead their own special projects. Changes to the biotextile or production method must contribute to one of Bucha Bio, Inc.'s established material science goals: Consistency, Tensile Strength, Hydrophobicity, Durability / Longevity, or another novelty feature that differentiates Bucha Bio, Inc.'s biomaterial from other leather alternatives on the market.
