The New Mexico Department of Public Safety Forensic Laboratory in Santa Fe is looking for applicants for a Forensic Scientist 2 position in the Biology/DNA section. An FS2 position requires at least 4 years of experience, but a post-graduate degree may substitute for one year of experience. This will be an open posting until the position is filled, so please share with your colleagues.
Visit https://www.spo.state.nm.us/ and click on “View Job Opportunities & Apply” and look for Job ID 110159 (Forensic Scientist 2 – DNA Analyst DPS #17986). The supplemental questions may seem like you’re applying for a chemistry position, but it is for a DNA position, so the QAS education and experience requirements are what we will be looking for in qualified applicants.
We will likely also be hiring soon for entry-level and/or less experienced analyst positions, so be on the lookout in the coming months for that information.
