Battelle-Pacific Northwest Laboratories has the Environmental Molecular Science 
Research Laboratory in Richland, Washington.  Though the "real" building
is in the middle of construction, the minds that comprise the organization
have existed for 4 or 5 years.

I don't know if they are specifically looking for people in molecular genetics,
but, as they say, "it couldn't hurt to ask..."

Have the young woman contact me and meanwhile I'll find the correct
"path" for her resume and put her in contact with EMSL's Human Resources

hope it pans out!
