Additional information from a VCU alum who works at this lab:

  1. There is no civil service exam for this position.  The interview process replaces that so don’t be discouraged if the position can’t be found on the county’s examination page.
  2. At least one year of experience is required if the student ALSO has a MS, so I hope the internships are going well.
  3. The lab is in Buffalo, NY.  It is a smaller lab, we have case ownership, and the position does everything from Serology to DNA, statistical analysis with STRmix, and testifying.
