We are on the verge of a clinical evolution that will leverage knowledge from deep databases of human genomes and clinical information from large health systems to change the practice of medicine as we know it today. The candidate must have an MD or MD/PhD and have expertise in clinical genetics and genomics. The successful candidate must have a strong background in clinical, basic, or translational research in human genetics. The research program can span a number of different fields, including translating genomic information into novel therapies, predicting genomic risk for human diseases, and/or genomic medicine implementation. We seek faculty members interested in working in a fast paced, highly collaborative environment in which interdisciplinary teams of data scientists, clinician scientists, and disease area experts work together with the shared goal of leveraging large-scale data to predict, test, and translate genomic information into new paradigms for genomic health.
This will be a faculty appointment at a rank commensurate with experience. Candidates should have advanced training in genomic medicine, with a track record of innovation and scholarship in this field, as evidenced by a strong publication record. Faculty at DGM/IGH have full access to the BioMe biobank (a germline DNA repository of over 60,000 Mount Sinai patients linked to EHR data), freely available, state-of-the-art high performance computing ecosystem, and institutional expertise in many areas of genomic medicine. Additionally, through the newly launched Mount Sinai Million Health Discoveries Program, which aims to enroll one million racially and ethnically diverse patients in the next five years, we plan to advance precision medicine research and improve patient care. This position offers a unique opportunity to develop and lead genomic research using cutting edge health systems data.
We offer highly competitive recruitment packages, strong institutional commitments to faculty support and workforce diversity, comprehensive benefits, relocation services, and a rewarding work and life environment. The Icahn School of Medicine is in the heart of Manhattan with offices one block from central park.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will remain open until positions are filled.

About Institute for Genomic Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The Institute for Genomic Health is committed to accelerating the integration of genomic information into clinical care throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. Investigators at the Institute are leading international collaborations that harness the power of massive-scale genomics research to bring new discoveries to the front line of clinical care for use in diagnosis and preventive health. In the next decade, the routine care of patients will increasingly be centered on genomic information. The rich scope of genetic, demographic, clinical, and lifestyle data in our health system is accelerating the pace at which we are discovering genetic variants that impact disease. Our research helps translate these findings into medical knowledge that can be used to predict, diagnose, or even prevent disease. Our faculty include experts in computer science, genomics, and medicine.
