Sponsor Funded Office/Clerical - Research Technician III

Job description

Biomedical Science research can lead to discoveries that result in better patient outcomes.  This research field can advance diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive measures for major human diseases.  To significantly and rapidly accelerate Georgia State University as a recognized leader in this area, the Institute for Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) has been established to expand its contribution and efforts to research and education in these areas.  IBMS is a leading multidisciplinary research and degree-granting education institute dedicated to advancing fundamental and innovative biomedical research that improves human health as well as educating and training future generations of leading biomedical scientists and health (non-M.D.) professionals related to biomedical sciences.


Despite tremendous advances in biological and medical research, significant gaps still exist between basic laboratory research and its clinical applications.  Now more than ever there is an urgent need for bridging basic research to clinical management strategies.  To meet this significant challenge and promote translational research from bench to bedside, the interface among the biomedical science disciplines has emerged as one of the most exciting interdisciplinary research fields in science.  IBMS will not only build a strong research presence in biomedical sciences but will also foster a unique environment to promote collaboration and develop world-class research and education programs.
