Subject: Genetic Counselor Seeks Full-Time Research Assistant Starting Summer
2018

Description:
The ClinSeq project is a cutting-edge study being conducted at the National
Institutes of Health (NIH) to pilot the use of whole exome sequencing.
Through our piloting, we hope to learn more about the informatics,
laboratory, medical and genetic counseling challenges associated with such
large-scale genetic testing. We currently have an opening for one recent
college graduate to join our team starting in summer 2018. This person will
gain a wealth of clinical and research experience over the course of a 1- or
2-year appointment, as well as the opportunity to work with a wide variety of
clinical and research professionals. This experience is particularly well
suited for graduates who have an interest in genetic counseling as a
profession.

The job responsibilities vary, but may include:recruiting and scheduling new
participants in the program; maintaining electronic and paper records of
study participation and data collection; assisting social and behavioral
researchers with various aspects of study design and implementation
including: literature reviews, participant recruitment, and data collection;
participating in weekly group meetings and conferences; assisting with the
publication of research findings in peer-reviewed journals; and carrying out
other administrative tasks related to the study as requested by study staff.

If you are interested in applying, please send a cover letter and CV to Katie
Lewis at [log in to unmask] by January 15, 2018. For more information on
the IRTA program at the NIH (which is the hiring mechanism for this
