If you think you are a good fit for the position, please apply regardless of whether you meet all (or most) of the qualifications!  You might be thinking that you are not qualified (and studies show that women, persons of color, and those from lower SES backgrounds are less likely to apply for positions unless they meet all qualifications). However, you should apply if you believe you have skills that are relevant (even if not exact), and you are passionate about clinical science and being part of a team that conducts and disseminates meaningful research.
