Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) – A research program funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute that supports central resources to define the clinical relevance of genes and variants for use in precision medicine and research (www.clinicalgenome.org). Students will have the opportunity to interact with clinicians, clinical genetic testing laboratory staff, researchers, and genetic counselors from around the world as they support efforts to evaluate gene-disease validity, dosage sensitivity, and/or variant pathogenicity. This opportunity may be either hybrid (with an in-person component at Geisinger Autism & Developmental Institute) or fully remote. Since ClinGen is a project within the ADMI, interns are able to take part in other learning opportunities including lectures from ADMI team, observations, and case conferences.
Summer Undergraduate Research Program features:
·Students entering their undergraduate Sophomore, Junior and Senior years are eligible to apply.
·Pharmacy students in their first two professional years are encouraged to apply.
·Paid program $11.50/hr., 40 hours per week, Tuesday May 30, 2023 – Friday August 4, 2023
·To the degree possible, students are matched with research programs according to their stated interest and work on projects under the direct supervision of our staff and faculty.
·Students are selected from diverse academic backgrounds.
·Geisinger does not sponsor OPT for this short-duration summer internship and does not participate in e-verify.
·This internship with the ClinGen team will be remote. No travel will be required but you will interact with the team online.
Consistent access to a computer and internet are required. Please contact Juliann Savatt at email@example.com if you are interested in this opportunity but this requirement is a barrier.
Interested students should send the application form and all required materials in one complete packet to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify your interest in the ClinGen program in your application. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2023. Late submission will not be considered.
