Boston Children's Hospital has an opening for a full-time, research program manager in the Epilepsy Genetics Program (EGP). The EGP was founded in 2011 with the aim of helping children and families with known or suspected genetic epilepsy syndromes. As one of the only multidisciplinary epilepsy genetics programs in the United States, our collaborative service includes 3 pediatric epileptologists and 3 licensed/provisionally licensed genetic counselors, as well as a research laboratory and a team of clinical and laboratory research assistants. It is situated within the setting of the Boston Children's Hospital Epilepsy Division, which incorporates expertise in all aspects of epilepsy diagnosis and treatment, including minimally invasive surgery and the ketogenic diet.

In addition, we conduct groundbreaking research focused on the genetics of epilepsy and related neurological disorders, as well as the psychosocial aspects of genetic testing. This position is for an experienced research program manager, ideally with expertise in clinical genetics research, for involvement in managing several clinical research efforts.
The clinical research manager will assist the PI in overseeing the scientific 'profile' of projects, interact with the EGP's many collaborators, and execute some of the most exciting work which involves bringing samples in from all over the world, and obtaining samples from patients with known or presumed genetic epilepsies.
The clinical research manager will collaborate with our colleagues to facilitate the creation of neurons from study participant blood cells by using stem cell technologies, assist the EGP's zebrafish lab supervisor in overseeing lab processes, and communicate our mission/vision/accomplishments through the creation and maintenance of the EGP newsletter and website.
