Career Resources/Employment Opportunities

Learn about everything careers-related that ASHG offers at the Career Center

In Houston, the Career Center will be located in the Exhibit & Poster Hall at ASHG Central and will be open during exhibit hours (Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 18 from 10 am - 4:30 pm, and Friday, October 19 from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm). Stop by to receive a list of exhibitors who are hiring, information about career services that ASHG offers, or just to say hi.

The meeting program includes several career development events and workshops for trainees and early-career scientists that are available now.

As you’re walking through the Exhibit & Poster Hall, look for exhibitors wearing the “Industry Scientist” ribbon. Anyone wearing the ribbon can ‘talk science’ with you, wants to hear about your work, and tell you about what they have to offer.

Resume/CV Reviews

Derek Haseltine, Director of Career Development at Baylor College of Medicine, will be reviewing resumes and CVs during exhibit hall hours at the Career Center. Attendees must sign up for a slot. The sign up page will go live later this summer. For questions, contact Evelyn Mantegani at emantegani@ashg.org.

Find new jobs and post your resume on the ASHG Career Center

ASHG’s online job board connects the innovative and energetic members of ASHG with the newest positions open in the human genetics and genomics community.

Collaborate with other undergraduate faculty members at the Undergraduate Faculty Genetics Education Workshop

This workshop, held in conjunction with the ASHG Annual Meeting each year, covers human genetics content and pedagogies for faculty who teach biology courses that have significant genetics content. The overarching goal is to encourage effective teaching of human genetics and to improve the genetic literacy of students enrolled in such classes. Students/postdocs serving as teaching assistants or interested in teaching are welcome as well. Workshop registration is separate from Annual Meeting registration and is now open. This year’s theme is Environmental Influence on Genetic Risk. For questions, contact Evelyn Mantegani at emantegani@ashg.org.
