The Department of Human Genetics (DOHG) at Emory University School of Medicine invites applications for tenure-track faculty at the  Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor rank. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in experimental  mammalian genetics or quantitative genetics who have strong track records in disease-driven research and a commitment to increasing diversity and inclusion in STEM. DOHG provides a competitive salary, benefits and start-up funds, laboratory space, access to state-of-the-art core facilities and extensive opportunities for collaboration both within Emory and  with  neighboring institutions, including CDC and Georgia Tech.

The DOHG has 40 full-time faculty members and extramural funding exceeding $30 million per year. Departmental research focuses mainly on human genetic disease and has major strengths in neurogenetics, metabolic diseases, and translational research. The DOHG contains the Center for Computational and Quantitative Genetics that catalyzes research at the interface between statistical/computational sciences and genetics across campus. Moreover, faculty with research programs in neuroscience will have opportunities to interact with the newly established Brain Health Personalized Medicine Institute. The DOHG also has a vibrant  clinical  program including numerous general and specialized outpatient clinics and in-patient consultations in several metro Atlanta hospitals, offering opportunities for collaborations in translational research. The Department has ACGME-accredited clinical genetics residency and medical biochemical fellowship programs and offers training in all ABMGG laboratory  subspecialties. The unique combination of a well-established basic research faculty along with the comprehensive clinical genetics division, places the DOHG at the forefront of contemporary translational research and predictive health.

Emory University and hospitals along with the CDC are located in a lovely-wooded Atlanta suburb. The Atlanta metropolitan area has an active art, music, food, and cultural scene with a delightful climate. The Atlanta metropolitan area continues to be rapidly growing, culturally diverse, and inclusive, offering an excellent and affordable quality of life. 

Candidates with expertise in experimental mammalian genetics must have a PhD and/or MD with significant research training in an appropriate field, postdoctoral experience, and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. Candidates with expertise in quantitative genetics must have a PhD in a related field (such as biostatistics or epidemiology) and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. Candidates working with single-cell RNA sequencing and long-read sequencing data are especially encouraged to apply. 

Interested candidates should send a Cover Letter indicating their research interest, curriculum vitae, statement of research accomplishments and goals (2 pages),  diversity  statement  detailing personal experience and/or commitment to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive training environment (1 page), and names of 3 potential references by email to Faculty Search Committee (recruit.dohg@emory.edu) before Dec 15th, 2021.
