Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases. Combining extremely talented people with the best technologies in a genuinely positive environment, we provide compassionate and comprehensive care to patients of all ages; we conduct research that advances treatment; we educate tomorrow's physician/researchers; we reach out to underserved members of our community; and we work with amazing partners, including other Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.
The Research Scientist will report directly to Judy Garber, MD, MPH, who serves as for the Chief of The Center for Cancer Genetics and Prevention (CCGP) at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).
The CCGP at the DFCI was one of the first clinical cancer genetics and prevention programs in the world. The Center offers genetic testing, counseling, and expert care for adult and pediatric cancer patients, survivors, previvors (patients who do not have cancer but tested positive for a mutation), and those with a family history of cancer. Our team also leads innovative research that helps to unravel the complexities of inherited cancers and uncover new methods of risk reduction.
The Research Scientist will be responsible for enhancing productivity of the CCGP through providing facilitative and scientific operational support. He/she will partner closely with Dr. Garber daily and will manage the execution of projects and tasks across all facets of operations, including day-to-day management, special initiatives, and oversight of deadlines. This position requires strategic agility, strong project management and communication skills, and interaction with multiple faculty and staff members across the Harvard-wide community.
