The Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a clinical track faculty position in the Section of Anatomic Pathology. This individual will join a group of 7 board-certified pathologists whose goals include providing excellent diagnostic services (necropsy and biopsy), training anatomic pathology residents and fellows, teaching veterinary students in the preclinical years, on the necropsy rotation and the histopathology elective, and advancing the understanding of disease processes through basic and clinical research. The successful candidate will work with the staff of the histopathology and necropsy laboratories in the Cornell Animal Health Diagnostic Center, a state of the art diagnostic facility equipped with digital microscopy, a variety of diagnostic modalities such as immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization, and a BSL-3 laboratory.
Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree and have completed a three-year residency in veterinary pathology. Board certification in veterinary pathology (ACVP) is preferred, but board eligible individuals are also encouraged to apply.
Distribution of effort in the section and department will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate's expertise and academic goals. The percentage of time spent on clinical teaching and service in the Animal Health Diagnostic Center, lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students, residents and fellows, and independent and/or collaborative research expectations is negotiable. Extensive opportunities for collaborative research exist at the College and University, including Weill Medical College and technology campuses in New York City.
Diagnostic duties require flexible working hours that may include daytime, evening, and weekend responsibilities. The candidate should have strong interpersonal and communication (written and oral) skills, as well as the ability to work cooperatively with clinicians at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals and at external clinics.
