Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pathology (Research Emphasis) - Baltimore, MD

The Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology invites applications for our 4-year postdoctoral fellowship (research emphasis). The successful candidate will receive 3 years of outstanding research training in a discipline of their choice. Research training is preceded by one year of intensive training in anatomic pathology in preparation for certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP). This training is comparable to residency/PhD programs offered at veterinary schools, but is distinguished by the broader research opportunities afforded by a large medical institution and the opportunity to pursue a PhD in a stellar JHU graduate program.

Program
This is a 2-part program: three years of research training, funded by the National Institutes of Health, preceded by a year of pathology training funded by Research Animal Resources. During the first year the postdoctoral fellows gain outstanding clinical experience in anatomic pathology through gross and microscopic examination of cases from the JHU animal colonies, local veterinary practitioners, the Maryland State Laboratory, the Maryland Zoo and the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Didactic training consists of weekly lectures and pathology seminars plus peer-mentored boards study, gross and histopathology practice and journal review. In years 2 to 4, trainees participate in full-time mentored basic or applied research in a discipline of their choice. Postdoctoral fellows may pursue a PhD concurrent with their research training, finishing their PhD after completing the pathology fellowship.

Faculty
Our faculty includes 12 veterinarians with ACVP and/or ACLAM board certification plus additional MD and PhD faculty. Research interests include retrovirology, neuropathology, cardiovascular disease, proteomics, rodent phenotyping and laboratory animal diseases. Postdoctoral fellows also may work with faculty from more than 30 academic departments forming Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Qualifications
This position is targeted for a veterinarian who wishes to pursue a career as an experimental pathologist in a research setting. Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree, be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States who has graduated from an AVMA-accredited institution. Candidates from non AVMA-accredited institutions must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States and must have the ECFVG or a license to practice veterinary medicine in at least one state of the United States.

Applications
Submit your curriculum vitae, transcripts, three letters of recommendation, class rank, GRE scores, and a letter of application, describing your (i) professional background, interests and goals, (ii) pathology experience and preparation, and (iii) plan for professional development to Emma Ey, Academic Program Coordinator, Johns Hopkins University, 733 N.
