The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of the Weill Cornell Medical College is seeking an academic neuropathologist for full-time appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to replace a retiring neuropathologist.
Neuropathology is an active service with a strong relationship with neurosurgery and neuro-oncology. The service is completely subspecialized with major focus on tumor pathology as part of the surgical service and brain cutting/non-neoplastic disease as part of the Autopsy service. The Department of Pathology supports translational research through its strong translational research program. Collaborations are available within the Department, as well as with faculty from other Weill Cornell Medical College departments, including Neurosurgery and Neuro-Oncology. Neuropathology also interacts with clinical programs at Memorial Sloan Kettering, including pediatric neurosurgery.
The anatomic pathology facilities, including the faculty offices, sign-out rooms, conference rooms, gross dissection room and histology laboratories have been completely renovated and are thoroughly modern. Additional renovation is planned to update and expand conference room, laboratory and clerical space.
The successful candidate should possess strong diagnostic skills, be capable of participating in the service responsibilities of a busy and state of the art neuropathology service, and have a strong commitment to an academic career including resident education and medical student teaching. Established diagnostic expertise, a record of scholarly publications and experience in translational research is highly desirable. Board certification in Anatomic Pathology and Neuropathology is required as is eligibility for unrestricted medical licensure in New York State. Academic rank and compensation will be commensurate with the level of experience and scholarly accomplishments.
Interested applicants should forward curriculum vitae, statement of interests, and the names and contact information of three references to:
