Rockefeller University Administrative Assistant in New York, New York
Job Title Administrative Assistant
Laboratory / Department Laboratory of Genome Maintenance
Throughout its lifetime, a cell's DNA is under constant metabolic and environmental assault leading to damage. Left unchecked, the resulting genome instability initiates cancer and other age-related disorders. Using Fanconi anemia as a backdrop for understanding aging and cancer, our laboratory's research aims to elucidate pathways that prevent cancer development, with a specific focus on those that repair DNA and those that induce permanent growth arrest in response to cellular stress.
Work in the lab focuses on rare genetic diseases caused by DNA repair deficiency. International Fanconi anemia Registry (IFAR) collects information about patients with Fanconi anemia. The Administrative Assistant will work closely with the study coordinator and with the Principal Investigator (PI) of the study to collect necessary information from families, physicians, and medical records. Will enter the information into a local database and file them in charts.
High School diploma or equivalent required; Bachelor's degree preferred. Must have a minimum of one year of previous administrative experience. Previous work in a clinical setting with patient charts/medical information preferred. Must have strong organizational skills, attention to detail, and follow through skills, as well as the ability to work independently. Must be able to communicate well over the phone and through email. Must have working knowledge of Excel, Word, and database management.
