Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is recruiting for an academic clinical geneticist at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor within the Division of Human Genetics. You will join a team of 8 clinical geneticists including 3 biochemical geneticists, dedicated metabolic RD, and a great team of genetic counselors. We provide evaluation and management for individuals and families with a wide variety of complex and rare disorders, completing 6200 patient encounters per year. This is an opportunity to focus primarily on clinical care and to partner with our dedicated clinical trials/ registry team. The successful candidate should have completed a clinical genetics residency as well as training in pediatrics or internal medicine. Fellowship in either clinical biochemical genetics or medical biochemical genetics is a plus but outstanding candidates with interest in skeletal dysplasias, connective tissue disorders, or neurogenetics should also consider this opportunity. Clinical geneticists have opportunities to work on multidisciplinary care and research teams, including cardiovascular genetics, craniofacial genetics, eye genetics, growth disorders, and disorders of sexual differentiation. Support services include on site biochemical genetics, cytogenetics, and molecular genetics laboratories. We have a vibrant and diverse education program, including clinical genetics, combined pediatrics/ genetics, medical and clinical biochemical genetics, and laboratory genetics and genomics, as well as one of the largest genetic counseling masters degree programs in the US. The Division is under new leadership under Louis Muglia, MD, PhD, and envisions further enhancing the integration of our clinical care, research, education, and laboratory diagnostics, and expanding expertise in both rare disease genetics, and common complex disorders with new approaches to functional/regulatory genomics.
