BioInformatics Co-Director Ladder Faculty Position in Laboratory Medicine at Yale
Location: New Haven, Connecticut
Type: Full Time
Internal Number: 659
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT (USA). The Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine seeks an MD, MD/PhD or a PhD with expertise in Computational Biology and Biomedical Informatics for a full-time, ladder faculty position in the Department as Co-Director of the Laboratory Informatics Section. The successful candidate would be expected to have experience overseeing clinical laboratory testing, with special expertise in next generation sequencing, genomics, and/or metagenomics. It is preferred that the candidate has experience with federal (e.g., CLIA/CAP) regulatory bodies and ideally also with state (e.g., NYS DOH) regulations. The successful candidate would be expected to spend the majority of their time in clinical “omics” computational endeavors; educational and scholarly responsibilities are also an important part of the position. This is a leadership position within this subdiscipline, working together with the other Co-Director whose primary emphasis is on computational health care, electronic health record analytics and algorithmic advancement. Secondary appointment in the new School of Medicine Section (Department) of Biomedical Informatics and Data Sciences is possible for appropriately qualified candidates. There are many opportunities for independent research, as well as for collaborative translational and clinical investigation.

The Department of Laboratory Medicine at Yale has a long and proud tradition of providing leading edge clinical care, outstanding biomedical research, and comprehensive education. Its roots can be traced back to the work of John Peters, who, as head of the Metabolic Division of the Department of Medicine at Yale in the 1920's and 30's, established methodologies for the rigorous examination of the chemical composition of blood and urine that brought quantitative discipline to the study of human metabolism publishing the seminal volumes Quantitative Clinical Chemistry, Methods and Interpretations in 1931-32. This tradition of excellence, innovation, and evidence-based inquiry drives the Department.
The department has over 30 faculty involved in basic and applied biomedical research. The research interests of the faculty include immunology, stem cell biology, asthma/allergies, advanced cell therapy, biomarker discovery, cancer and molecular genetics, data science (computational healthcare and imaging), epilepsy/neuroinflammation, immunohematology and transfusion medicine, and microbiology/virology. Faculty are involved in teaching residents, medical students, graduate students (PhD), and Yale undergraduates.
