TITLE: Laboratory Technician Trainee
TYPE: Contract (6 months with the possibility of being extended or going full-time)
LOCATION: Brooklyn, NY
START DATE: Immediate

Our client located near Brooklyn, NY has an immediate opening for a Laboratory Technician Trainee. Within 6-24 months, this person will have the opportunity to be promoted into a full Lab Tech position with the same company. The trainee role is around 45% customer service, 45% administrative support, and 10% working with the lab techs while they train you how to do their job. The ideal candidate has a bachelor’s degree in Biology, Microbiology, Genetics, Forensics, etc. and only has limited non-academic experience with Biology techniques such as PCR. This is also an excellent role for someone who is going to start grad school in the next 1-3 years and needs to gain some experience in the field before starting school again. You will be trained on how to perform the additional tasks of the role.

Main Responsibilities:
Customer Service (~45%):

  • Be the first point of contact with customers when they enter the lab.
  • Greet customers in a friendly and positive way, provide instructions, help with any paperwork or pre-appointment checks that need to be performed.
  • Follow all HIPPA guidelines and keep all healthcare information/lab results confidential.
  • Schedule appointments with patients over the phone and make sure that the appointment is updated correctly in the LIMS system.

Administrative Support(~45%):

  • Enter data into the LIMS system.
  • Review PCR test results and input the correct information into the LIMS system.
  • Run various reports out of the database to be presented both internally and externally.
  • Help ensure that the lab is running smoothly.

Laboratory Training (~5-10%):

  • Working in a CLIA/CAP certified, high complexity/high throughput Biology lab, you will be able to observe and shadow the lab techs performing the entire qPCR process from start to finish.
  • Once you have enough knowledge, you will be able to run part of the qPCR process with the help of a lab tech.
  • Eventually, you will have an opportunity to be promoted into a Lab Tech role, when a position becomes available.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Forensics, Genetics or a similar field. Those with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry or Physics are probably not going to be a fit for this position.
  • Academic experience with Western Blotting, Gel Electrophoresis, PCR/qPCR/RT-PCR, DNA/RNA extraction BUT less than a year of real-world experience
  • Personable demeanor, friendly personality, and the ability to perform a high level of customer service. Experience working with the general public in a restaurant, retail, or other public setting is a BIG plus.
  • Must have reliable transportation, driver’s license, valid insurance, clean driving record.
  • Must be flexible with regards to local travel and shift.
  • Must be reliable, dependable and trustworthy.
