In this month's The Genomics Landscape, we reflect on the career of Jeff Schloss, who lead the DNA sequencing technology development and $1,000 Genome programs. We also feature the new dbGap Data Browser, the "Your DNA, Your Say" Survey from the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, Dr. Diana Bianchi's new NHGRI laboratory and the applications for ASHG/NHGRI Policy and Education fellowships.
For several years, NHGRI and the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) have provided a pathway for scientists who want to pursue careers in science policy or education. The Genetics and Public Policy Fellowship and the Genetics and Education Fellowship offer effective experiences in the public, private and non-profit arenas to those with graduate education in genetics. These fellowships help build the skills required to inform science policy and education. Our 2016-2017 fellows share what they've accomplished.
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) seeks highly-motivated applicants for a scientific administrative position as a Scientific Program Analyst in Rockville, Maryland. This is an exciting opportunity for recent graduates in the biological sciences to gain first-hand experience in and broad exposure to how cutting-edge medical research is supported.
