Qualifications

Who May Apply: US Citizens In order to qualify, you must meet the experience requirements described below. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community; student; social). You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Your resume must clearly describe your relevant experience; if qualifying based on education, your transcripts will be required as part of your application. Additional information about transcripts is in this document. Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes leading a team; applying histopathology concepts and methodology in areas such as tissue processing, embedding, microtomy of all types of tissues including very small biopsies, staining and microscopic tissue identification within a clinical laboratory; assisting with training and/or instruction for personnel on the basics of Histopathology (embedding, microtomy of all types of tissues including very small biopsies, and quality control preferred); and experience in the performance of special stains, immunohistochemistry, direct immunofluorescence, and in-situ hybridization techniques. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-09). Some federal jobs allow you to substitute your education for the required experience in order to qualify. For this job, you must meet the qualification requirement using experience alone--no substitution of education for experience is permitted.
