The Department of Comparative Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine is searching for an academic veterinary pathologist with a strong research focus to pursue independent and collaborative research, participate in training of laboratory animal medicine residents, and provide, on a rotational basis, diagnostic pathology services.  The Pathology Unit provides necropsy, microbiology, histology and health surveillance support for the Yale Animal Resources Center, which maintains more than 120,000 animals ranging from zebrafish to nonhuman primates, with the majority comprised of genetically engineered mice.

The Department of Comparative Medicine has a full-time faculty of 38 veterinarians, physicians, and basic scientists with robust federally funded research programs in metabolism, neurobiology, stem cells, vascular biology, cardiopulmonary biology and COVID. Comparative animal model development and with a strong translational and collaborative focus has been identified as a strategic area of research growth within the Department. 

This position is being requested to provide pathology diagnostic support to Veterinary Clinical Services (a unit of the Yale Animal Resources Center) and to expand programmatic research that aligns with Comparative Medicine’s strategic plan of advancing comparative animal model development and translation. One of the current diagnostic veterinary pathologists will shift a large portion of effort to research pathology and will as needed support the diagnostic service or teaching and training activities within Comparative Medicine’s Laboratory Animal Medicine Training Program. Pathology replacement effort is needed to support the veterinary pathology diagnostic service and meet pathology teaching/training responsibilities. An independent or well-established collaborative research track record is anticipated to fulfill the research expectations of the position.
