Academic Autopsy Pathologist

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of the Weill Cornell Medical College is seeking an academic autopsy pathologist to participate in our hospital-based autopsy service. The ability to cover other anatomic pathology services is desirable as is experience and/or interest in biobanking activities.

Our department performs over 150 post-mortem examinations per year for NYP/Weill Cornell and our affiliate network hospitals in Brooklyn, Queens, and Lower Manhattan. All autopsies are performed centrally in our fully modernized autopsy suite at the main Weill Cornell campus location in Manhattan.

Weill Cornell takes a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, research, and medical education, and thus our faculty have the collaborative attitude and strong communication skills that are necessary for the interdepartmental relationships with the clinical faculty, students, and researchers with whom they work.

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine supports faculty research initiatives through its robust translational research program. Collaborations are available within the Department as well as with faculty from other departments at Weill Cornell Medicine, Rockefeller University, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

A strong commitment towards advancement of knowledge in the field through research and education is essential. Board certification in Anatomic Pathology is required as is eligibility for unrestricted medical licensure in the state of New York. Academic rank and compensation will be commensurate with level of experience and scholarly accomplishments.
