We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Senior Research Coordinator for our Pediatric Undiagnosed Diseases Program at New York University (NYU) Grossman School of Medicine / Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital. This position will involve a unique mix of both research and patient interaction to help find diagnoses for children with rare and atypical undiagnosed diseases that are suspected to have a genetic cause.
The Program uses the latest genomics technologies that are not yet readily available clinically, including whole-genome sequencing, RNA-sequencing, custom genomic analyses, and studies of patient-specific stem cell lines. This is a unique opportunity to learn and apply cutting-edge genomics technologies while also helping families struggling to find a diagnosis.
This full-time position in New York City will involve work with clinical geneticists, human genetics researchers, molecular diagnostics laboratories, and other basic and translational scientists at NYU School of Medicine’s Center for Human Genetics & Genomics, the Departments of Pediatrics and Pathology, and the Children’s Hospital.
