Australian Genomics Health Alliance

The Australian Genomics Health Alliance (AGHA) was formed in late 2015 following the award of a $25M grant from NHMRC. The alliance creates a national network of clinicians, pathologists and researchers working towards the development and adoption of genomic medicine into clinical care, both within Australia, and in collaboration with international consortia.

The AGHA will work closely with two state based genomics alliances, specifically the Queensland Genomics Health Alliance (QGHA) and the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance (MGHA). The state based alliances will support the seamless translation of genomics applications and policies to the Australian healthcare system and community. The University of Queensland is the administrative lead for QGHA.

The position will work closely with two state-based genomics alliances, specifically the Queensland Genomics Health Alliance and the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance.

The person

Applicants should possess qualifications, training and extensive experience in relevant disciplines.
