Geisinger National Precision Health

Washington, DC Area

As part of a major expansion of its innovative and patient-centered programs in genomics and precision health, Geisinger has launched a new national initiative, based in the Washington, DC area. Under the leadership of Huntington F. Willard, PhD, Geisinger National Precision Health will accelerate implementation in genomics and data science and develop novel national partnerships to broaden Geisinger’s impact in precision and population health.

To spearhead this effort, Geisinger is seeking candidates for several new positions based at Geisinger National headquarters in North Bethesda, MD.

Early Career Investigators

We will recruit multiple Geisinger National Early Career Investigators to develop and extend programs of collaborative research that build upon and leverage the extensive data-rich resources of the MyCode Community Health Initiative.  Early Career candidates will have received an advanced degree, such as PhD, MD, or Masters in Genetic Counseling, within the past five years, with a history of creative, non-traditional, and entrepreneurial experiences, a record of contributions in emerging areas of science, technology, and implementation, and a commitment to a career with national impact. Successful candidates will have experience in the development and application of analytical and translational approaches in relevant fields such as genomics, computational biology, clinical/bioinformatics, or health policy/economics, as well as a demonstrated commitment to creative and mission-oriented multidisciplinary research. While these are independent faculty-level appointments, candidates will be expected to collaborate with other investigators throughout the Geisinger network of research and clinical sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. Early Career Investigators will receive an initial three-year appointment and will be eligible for a faculty appointment at an appropriate level.

Bioinformatics Core Director

To expand our infrastructure in bioinformatics and implementation science and to facilitate collaborative research throughout the Geisinger network of research and clinical sites, we seek candidates for the position of Director of the Bioinformatics Core, one of several core facilities that facilitate and accelerate research by Geisinger scientists and clinicians, leveraging the MyCode Community Health Initiative and other data-rich resources across Geisinger.  The successful candidate will be expected to build, develop, and oversee operation of a new and progressive Bioinformatics Core, including planning, supervision of staff, and collaborations with other core directors and investigators across the full spectrum of data analysis in bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and genomics.  Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in one of the following areas: bioinformatics, genomics, genetics, computational biology, biomedical informatics, computer science, medicine, biostatistics, or a related discipline. A record of published collaborative research in bioinformatics and genomics and potential for obtaining extramural funding are essential. The ideal candidate will have experience in developing and operating a successful core facility and will be eligible for a faculty appointment at an appropriate level.

Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a statement of research interests as a single PDF file C/O Skjoseph@geisinger.edu or apply online at www.geisinger.org/careers. Letters of reference should not be sent at this time but will be sought during the evaluation process. Review of applications is ongoing and will continue until the positions are filled.
