Last Update: 2/27/23

The Division of Genetic, Genomic, and Metabolic Disorders at Children’s Hospital of Michigan is actively seeking applicants for an additional MD/DO Clinical or Medical Biochemical Geneticist.

Opportunity Highlights

The candidate’s responsibilities include the diagnosis and management of patients identified through the State of Michigan’s Newborn Screening Program with a suspected inborn error of metabolism. Our Division is the State of Michigan’s designated coordinating and referral center for all infants with a suspected metabolic disorder (inborn errors of metabolism and lysosomal storage disorders).

The metabolic team consists of 2 Clinical Geneticists also board certified in Clinical or Medical Biochemical Genetics, 2 genetic counselors, 3 dietitians, 3 nurses and 2 nurse practitioners; part time support staff includes a psychologist and social worker.

Additional on-call responsibilities include the evaluation and management of patients on the inpatient consultation service, supervision and teaching of medical students, genetic counseling students, residents, and fellows. Opportunities exist to pursue individual research interests. The academic rank, tenure status, and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Leadership roles in newborn screening are available commensurate with experience. Flexibility to also see general genetics patients is also an option, depending on the applicant’s personal or academic interests.

About the Division

In addition to the metabolic team, the candidate will enjoy working with the rest of the staff in the Division of Genetic, Genomic and Metabolic Disorders, including four Clinical Geneticists, five Genetic Counselors and 2 genetic counseling assistants.

We have an active Medical Genetics and Genomics Residency program (5 current trainees), an accredited Medical Biochemical Genetics Fellowship program (1 incoming fellow) and an accredited Genetic Counseling Graduate Program. On-site Cytogenetic, Molecular, and Biochemical Genetics laboratories directed by board-certified laboratory geneticists complement the clinical service.
