The G2P Research Program has a long history of working with trainees to advance their career development, and with young investigators to advance their research skills.
Opportunities exist for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellows to contribute to and expand high-profile studies that are re-shaping the way genomics is being integrated into medicine. Please click through the options below to learn how you can engage with our programs.
The G2P (Genomes2People) Research Trainee Program
Opportunities exist for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellows to contribute to and expand high-profile studies that are re-shaping the way genomics is being integrated into medicine. We also accept genetic counseling interns seeking rotation experience as part of their genetic counseling masters program, as well as medical students (see more information below).
Trainees work with Dr. Green and the entire G2P Team to observe NIH-funded research activities and conduct independent projects that build skills and advance their career goals.
If you are interested in pursuing a research opportunity with us, please complete our G2P Trainee Interest Form. Please email Erin Drake with any questions.
The G2P Diversity in Genomics Research Trainee Program
At the core of our research at Genomes2People we are accelerating preventive genomics through science and storytelling. Our commitment to improving healthcare for all people involves taking steps towards a more equitable future for underserved communities in medicine. We have partnered with investigators and local communities of color, through our BabySeq2, PopSeq and PeopleSeq research studies, to make sure that our genomic research can be counted among the incredible work being done to balance systemic health inequities. Yet, we acknowledge that the roadway is paved with challenges and will require emotional imagination, humility and divergent perspectives. As such, we are offering paid internships for Black, Indigenous, person of color (BIPOC) undergraduate, graduate, pre-doctoral and doctoral students who are interested in contributing to and expanding high-profile studies that are re-shaping the way genomics is being integrated into medicine. A stipend will be provided at a maximum of $2,500/month for a full-time internship (40 hours/week) and the preferred duration is 8 weeks, but there is flexibility for part-time arrangements and alternative timeframes based on the needs of the successful candidate. Candidates who are able to complete their internship hours on-site will be given preference following employees return to BWH, however remote positions will be considered in the interim. If you are interested in pursuing a research opportunity with us, please complete our G2P Trainee Interest Form and indicate your interest in the G2P Diversity in Genomics Research Trainee Program. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
The G2V (Genomes2Veterans) Research Trainee Program
Genomes2Veterans (G2V) is a translational genomics research program focused on the implementation of genomics innovations into the routine practice of medicine, including pharmacogenomic testing, polygenic risk scores, and the return of genetic results to research participants in a national biobank.
Opportunities exist for undergraduate students, graduate students, medical students, pharmacy students, postdoctoral fellows, and recent graduates to contribute to and expand high-profile clinical research studies and implementation projects that are re-shaping the way genomics is being integrated into clinical care at the VA.
Trainees work with Dr. Jason Vassy and the entire G2V Team to observe clinical research activities and implementation projects, as well as conduct independent projects that build skills and advance their career goals.
If you are interested in pursuing a research opportunity with us, please complete our G2V Trainee Interest Form.
Opportunities for Medical Students
Many opportunities are available within G2P for medical students. Students at any point in their medical school training are welcome to apply for a research trainee position by completing this G2P Trainee Interest Form. Note that we are open to other structures not listed here.
Harvard Medical School Scholars in Medicine Program
Harvard Medical School requires all medical students to undertake a scholarly project with a new mentor. The project is intended to foster critical thinking while cultivating practitioners who can both master and create knowledge. One result of this program is that many students have authored peer-reviewed papers. Students may spend three to five months—or even a year—carrying out a scholarly project. These projects need not be hypothesis-based, but the student should take a major intellectual role in designing and completing the work. Dr. Green is available to serve as a mentor to HMS students.
