The Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) was established by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research to deliver and interpret genome sequences for clinical use and to translate the benefits of genome sequencing into routine healthcare. KCCG was among the first three sites in the world to acquire the Illumina HiSeq X Ten sequencing platform, capable of sequencing 150 whole human genomes every three days. KCCG aims to be a clinically-accredited provider of whole human genomes in 2015.
In July, the NSW Health Minister announced the Sydney Genomics Collaborative, which aims to sequence thousands of human genomes at KCCG over the next four years. As its research and clinical projects continue to grow, the Centre has a vacancy for a dedicated Genomics Project Officer to manage the projects and relationships of KCCG.
The Genomics Project Officer will be responsible for development, conduct and completion of research and clinical projects in KCCG. This senior position represents an exciting opportunity to engage across all levels in the implementation of clinical genomics in the Australian healthcare system.
