The Laboratory of Pathology (LP) in CCR at the National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health (NCI/NIH) is seeking a full-time genitourinary pathologist. The NCI is a major center for genitourinary cancer research (including prostate, kidney and bladder), and this represents an outstanding opportunity for a pathologist to participate with a multidisciplinary team in clinical and translational investigations of genitourinary cancer. In addition, the NCI has recently partnered with the Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR, https://www.cpdr.org/) which would provide the incumbent an additional opportunity to collaborate with a center that contains a large number of biospecimens and matched clinical outcomes data relevant to prostate cancer.
This position consists of clinical, educational and research activities and is ideal for individuals interested in fully participating in academic genitourinary pathology. At the clinical level, this individual will sign-out material from patients being treated on or being evaluated for entry onto clinical trials at the NCI. Of note, the LP is prioritizing integration of surgical pathology with clinical genomics using next-generation sequencing and additional technologies to promote integrative histo-molecular diagnostics. The incumbent will also have the opportunity to develop a clinical consultation service to review additional genitourinary pathology cases submitted by outside institutions. At the educational level, this individual will instruct and mentor pathology residents and fellows training in the LP. At the research level, this individual will work closely with other pathologists, oncologists and scientists to develop and analyze clinical correlative studies related to genitourinary cancer.
The successful candidate will have an M.D. and/or equivalent medical degree, must be board certified in anatomic pathology and have completed fellowship training (or equivalent experience) in genitourinary pathology. This individual must have the clinical, organizational and interpersonal skills to work closely with oncologists, pathologists and scientists in clinical care and correlative research activities. In addition, a genuine interest in education and a commitment to training and mentoring are essential elements of this position.
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and accomplishments and a full package of benefits (including health insurance, life insurance, retirement and a Thrift Savings Plan) is available. Candidates may also be eligible for the NIH Loan Repayment Program (http://www.LRP.NIH.gov). This position is not restricted to U.S. citizens, but applicants must be eligible to be credentialed in the Clinical Center.
Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, brief statement of clinical and research interests and future plans (1-2 pages) electronically, and three letters of reference to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the address below. Applications will be reviewed beginning on July 1, 2019 and will be accepted until the search process has been completed.
