The Department of Population Medicine and Diagnostic 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 nine ACVP board-certified pathologists whose goals include providing outstanding diagnostic services (necropsy and biopsy); training anatomic pathology residents and fellows; teaching veterinary students in the preclinical years in the core curriculum, on the necropsy rotation; and advancing the understanding of disease processes through basic and clinical research. The successful candidate will work with the staff of the Anatomic Pathology laboratory in the New York State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (NYSVDL), a state-of-the-art diagnostic facility supported by the State of New York. The AHDC has capabilities in a wide range of diagnostic modalities housed in 12 dedicated diagnostic sections, including a BSL-3 laboratory, and is accredited by the American Association of Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD). Capabilities in the Anatomic Pathology laboratory include immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, molecular diagnostics, and digital microscopy. The section handles over 9,000 biopsies and 1,600 necropsies per year and is noted for its specialties in dermatopathology, hepatopathology, forensic pathology, and neuropathology.
