About Us
Genomics Inc is a pioneering global health-tech company established in 2014. We have developed a world leading team of scientists to drive our understanding of the genetic determinants of many common, chronic diseases. The company is now expanding and pivoting toward utilising this scientific expertise to improve human health by supporting individuals (and their healthcare providers) to better understand their risk of developing a range of diseases, and how to take actions to mitigate this. We also use this expertise to support life sciences companies develop new drugs.
It’s an exciting time at Genomics:- we have recently launched our “Health Insights” product in the US via a major commercial partner. This product uses our technology to empower individuals to better understand their risk of developing a range of important diseases including cardiovascular disease and common cancers. A key goal for 2024 will be to develop and further engage a range of new customers for this product.
The US Medical Director Role
This is a senior leadership role within the company, and the first medical hire in the US, where we have an established commercial and lab operations team. The successful candidate will provide medical leadership and will be responsible for the development and execution of a US-focussed medical strategy to commercialise and further develop our products for a range of customers.

You will also understand and be able to effectively communicate the benefits of prevention/early detection of common chronic diseases. The successful appointee will have the opportunity to work with a major US based integrated delivery network to generate evidence for clinical utility of our products in US healthcare systems. You will also have a broad understanding of how precision medicine can drive value for payers, and understand how clinical evidence can drive economic evaluation of novel products.
