Academic Surgical Pathologists

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of Weill Cornell Medicine is seeking three academic surgical pathologists for full-time appointments at the Assistant, Associate, or Professorial levels. These recruitments are sought to permit the department to handle an expanding anatomic pathology case volume and to expand its academic programs in certain subspecialty areas, particularly gastrointestinal pathology, pulmonary pathology, and genitourinary pathology.

Successful candidates should possess strong diagnostic skills, be capable of participating in the service responsibilities of a large, busy, and demanding anatomic pathology service, have a strong commitment to an academic career and to publishing original papers in their chosen area of subspecialization, and be similarly committed to resident education and medical student teaching. Established diagnostic expertise in an area of subspecialization, a record of scholarly publications, and experience in translational research and molecular pathology are highly desirable. Board certification in anatomic pathology and eligibility for unrestricted medical licensure in New York State are required. Academic rank and compensation will be commensurate with the level of experience and scholarly accomplishments.

The Anatomic Pathology Division is composed of 30 anatomic pathologists currently handling an annual volume of 60,000 surgical specimens, 125 post-mortem examinations, 49,000 cytological specimens, and 3,500 fine-needle aspirations. The anatomic pathology service is partially subspecialized so as to permit the faculty to maintain broad exposure to many organ systems while expanding their diagnostic expertise and scholarly accomplishments in an area of subspecialization. The anatomic pathology facilities — including the faculty offices, sign-out rooms, conference rooms, house staff rooms, gross dissection room, and the histology and cytopathology laboratories — have been completely renovated and are thoroughly modern. Excellent Immunopathology and Molecular Pathology Laboratories support the translational research programs of the anatomic pathology faculty. Exceptional collaborative research opportunities exist with the numerous independent research laboratories within the department, Weill Cornell Medicine, and at our neighboring institutions: The Rockefeller University and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
