CheckOrphan provides a very rewarding atmosphere. Every day you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the world for people with rare diseases. We are looking for a volunteer, who will be willing to head up our European team and oversee our team of volunteers and interns.

Our staff will rely on your leadership and your ability to motivate and mentor them, as well as, help them trouble shoot their problems. Many of the people we have on staff are transitioning from the laboratory to a desk job and CheckOrphan provides that opportunity to develop their career path and gain the experience they need, while ensuring the many CheckOrphan tasks are executed.
