Adam Longwich Capoferri (Biochem '13), Research Technician I/ Lead Study Coordinator, would like to share this with our students.
The lab I work in will be posting a job openings in the beginning of January, looking for a Clinical Study Coordinator through Johns Hopkins) and a Research Technician (through HHMI). Ideally, they probably would want someone who would stay for at least one year; but considering the massive type of opportunity that this would be, I would endorse it! My mentor within the lab mentioned to me that if I knew anyone that was interested in a possible position to send along their CVs for an early first glance. I would gladly answer any additional questions as well.
