Clinical Molecular Geneticist Division of Genome Diagnostics, Dept. of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine BC Children’s Hospital & BC Women’s Hospital, Vancouver, BC
Regular Full Time Opportunity
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, at the BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospitals, is seeking a qualified and highly motivated individual with excellent communication skills to join the Division of Genome Diagnostics as a Clinical Molecular Geneticist.
As a Clinical Molecular Geneticist you will work collaboratively with the Division’s Head and medical staff consisting of Molecular Geneticists, Cytogeneticists, and Scientists. You will be required to build relationships and provide prompt and expert consultative services to physicians and other health care providers, while providing case interpretation, technical oversight and monitoring of compliance with CCMG/RCPSC/DAP requirements and guidelines, participating in new test development and implementation, collaborating on Division, hospital and provincial initiatives pertinent to laboratory genetics and genomics care, and participating in quality and other administrative committees.
With a recommendation for appointment to the Clinical Faculty at the University of British Columbia (UBC), in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, you will be expected to be actively engaged in academic teaching and research.
The Department provides laboratory and pathology diagnostic care to BC’s perinatal women, infants, and children, including those with the most acute and complex conditions, and includes provincial specialty laboratories such as prenatal screening, newborn screening, biochemical genetics, and inherited constitutional genetics and genomics. The Department’s mandate includes working collaboratively with health authorities to establish provincial standards and guidelines, leading pilot projects assessing clinical utility of emerging diagnostic and screening technologies, and contributing to and participating nationally and internationally to promote access to appropriate laboratory care and best practices within BC.
The Division of Genome Diagnostics is responsible for providing academic pediatric, adult, and maternal-fetal medicine care for the province of BC in conjunction with the other Departmental provincial services, primarily focused on the diagnosis of inherited disease using genetic and genomic approaches. The Division is leading the way towards the future of genome-wide sequencing, successfully functionally integrating molecular genetics and cytogenetics care into a single delivery model. Join this dynamic team which aims to be flexible, adaptable, and responsive in this rapidly evolving medical field.
As the successful candidate you will be an experienced clinical Molecular Geneticist with expertise in constitutional genetic and genomic testing. You must hold a PhD in Genetics or related field, and be certified or eligible for certification in Clinical Molecular Genetics by the Canadian College of Medical Genetics (CCMG). Dual training in Molecular Genetics and Cytogenetics is an asset. Preference will be given to candidates with at least 3 years experience working as Molecular Geneticist in a clinical molecular genetics laboratory, and experience or specialized training in laboratory medical operations.
We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Applicants from outside Canada must be eligible for CCMG certification; maintenance of employment requires successful achievement of and ongoing CCMG certification. Salary and hospital rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
