Research & Science

Research Operations Associate

Sunnyvale, California, United States

Do you love science (and scientists) but have no desire to spend your days at a lab bench? Are you interested in learning more about human genetics research and running projects/teams from the inside?

Do people naturally turn to you when something needs to get done? Does helping people do things in a smart, organized, efficient way make it easy for you to get out of bed every morning?

You should be highly organized, detail-oriented, curious, and able to manage multiple priorities.
