Summary Description: Columbia University (CU) has recently undertaken an interdisciplinary initiative in precision medicine that offers exciting new avenues for applying advanced genomic science to the diagnosis and treatment of the most challenging diseases. To this end, the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM), under the direction of Dr. David Goldstein, is building a program that comprehensively integrates genetics and genomics into research, training and patient care. The IGM and its faculty members will develop programs that prepare students for careers as researchers and clinicians in the expanding field of genomic medicine. We are currently accepting applications for multiple non-tenure-track clinician scientists at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels in the field of genomic medicine. Faculty in these positions will hold an appointment in an appropriate clinical department and be full members of the IGM with full participation in its academic activities, and full access to all of its core resources. Successful candidates will be team players who excel in highly interdisciplinary environments. These collaborative research positions are intended to use clinical and translational genomic strategies to advance precision medicine, understand human biology, identify the complex functional networks underlying health and disease, and develop novel diagnostics and therapeutics. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to: -Neurology -Reproductive Medicine -Pediatric genetics -Nephrology -Gastroenterology -Psychiatry
Minimum Qualifications: MD, MD/ PhD, or PhD with significant research training in an appropriate clinical field, and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. A demonstrated ability to secure external research funding and publication in top peer-reviewed journals is expected. Training and/or experience in genetics/genomics
