Positions Available in the Department of Pathology

Assistant or Associate Professor - Diagnostic Pathology, Bridgeport Hospital Division

The Department of Pathology at Yale University School of Medicine is seeking a Pathologist, certified in AP/CL by the American Board of Pathology, with broad skills in surgical pathology, cytology and laboratory medicine, for its Bridgeport Hospital division. This full-time position will be at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the University’s Clinician-Educator track, dependent upon the applicant’s experience and accomplishments. Applicant must be eligible for licensure in Connecticut.

The successful applicant will be focused on diagnostic excellence in a generalist environment, and be driven to perform at a level commensurate with the standards of a major academic center. The position also includes the expectation to rotate on a subspecialty service at Yale-New Haven Hospital for a portion of their time. Fellowships in broad-based areas, such as surgical pathology or cytology – preferably both – would be advantageous. Excellent communication skills are essential. The position ideally would be filled by someone with leadership potential.

Bridgeport Hospital is a highly integrated member of the Yale-New Haven Health System, with 383 licensed beads and 42 additional pediatric beds licensed under the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. It is a major teaching Hospital, with ~235 medical/surgical residents affiliated with the Yale University School of Medicine. The department of Pathology at Bridgeport Hospital is entirely staffed by physicians who are faculty members of the Yale Department of Pathology. Senior residents from the pathology training program at Yale rotate at Bridgeport; teaching is a major component of the position.

The case mix is very challenging with an abundance of Breast, GI, Pulmonary, Gynecologic and Urologic cases. Clinical fellowship programs are active in GI, Gynecologic Surgery and Pulmonary Medicine, which provide abundant opportunities for collaborative teaching and research. Additionally, as a Yale faculty member, the opportunity to access the exceptional resources of the entire Yale system is available.

Interested individuals should forward a letter of interest, a copy of their curriculum vitae, and the names of three individuals who may be contacted for reference to the address below. Electronic submissions are encouraged.

Instructor – Cytology

The Department of Pathology at the Yale School of Medicine is seeking a junior anatomic pathologist (M.D. or M.D., Ph.D.) with subspecialty interest in Cytopathology. This limited-term, full-time appointment will be at the Instructor level. The appointment is for one year beginning July 1, 2015 (potentially renewable for a second year based on performance and departmental needs), and is intended to facilitate the transition from fellowship training to independent clinical practice. It is not a ladder track position, and the position is limited to a maximum of two years. Certification in Anatomic Pathology by the American Board of Pathology or equivalent qualification is required. The candidate will also be expected to be subspecialty certified OR qualified (i.e., will have completed an ACGME accredited fellowship) in Cytopathology.

The major responsibilities of the appointee will be independent signout on the Gyn and Non-Gyn cytology services at Yale’s practice sites at the New Haven, St. Raphael, and Bridgeport campuses, attendance at consensus and correlation conferences, instruction of residents and cytopathology fellows, and participation in the unit’s quality assurance activities. While the majority of the clinical work will be in cytopathology, the appointee will also be expected to rotate on one or more of the subspecialty surgical pathology services, adding greater depth to the experience and better preparing the appointee for a long-term position in either an academic or private practice environment.

Interested individuals should forward a letter of interest, a copy of their curriculum vitae, and the names of three individuals who may be contacted for reference to the address below. Electronic submissions are encouraged.

Assistant or Associate Professor – Cancer Biology Program

The Department of Pathology at the Yale School of Medicine is seeking an applicant (M.D. or M.D., Ph.D. or Ph.D.) for a full time appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in an interdisciplinary program in Cancer Biology. The Cancer Biology Program has strong ties and collaborative projects with investigators in the Yale Cancer Center and throughout the Yale community. The successful candidate will be positioned to establish research leadership in areas germane to current concepts of cancer biology, such as epigenetics, cancer stem cells, gene transcription, cell cycle control, cell motility and migration. Investigators working in the field of urologic (prostate and bladder) are particularly urged to apply. Other responsibilities will include contributions to Yale’s teaching and (if appropriate) its clinical programs.

Appointment to the faculty of the Yale School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences will be at a rank commensurate with accomplishments and experience.

Candidates should forward or e-mail their current curriculum vitae, a two page summary of their current and proposed research program, and the names of three senior references who are familiar with their work and potential to:

Postdoctoral Positions Available

Postdoctoral Associate Position

A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Narendra Wajapeyee at the Yale School of Medicine. The postdoctoral candidate will use cutting edge technologies to discover the drivers of human cancers. Experience with mouse models of cancer and RNAi screening/CRISPR-CAS9 screening will be preferred. Evidence of one or more first author publications is necessary for applying for this position.

The overview of the research in Wajapeyee lab can be found at Pubmed using the URL http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=wajapeyee.

Requirements:

Evidence of one or more first author publications, experience with cell culture techniques, and some exposure to handling mouse models of cancer is necessary for applying for this position.

Interested candidates should forward via e-mail a current CV, a statement regarding their research interest in cancer, a biosketch and the names of three referees to: Narendra.Wajapeyee@yale.edu. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed and requested to provide three letters of reference.

Postdoctoral Associate Position

Accomplished Ph.D. graduates seeking postdoctoral associate training in programmed cell death are invited to apply to the Katz Laboratory in the Department of Pathology at Yale University. Successful candidates will work with BCL-2 family proteins, which play essential roles in many cellular functions including apoptosis. Disruption of apoptosis results in both diseases of cellular excess such as cancer and diseases of cellular loss such as neurodegeneration. A detailed understanding of how BCL-2 family members regulate apoptosis will ultimately allow the design novel therapies for a multitude of diseases. Recent work has focused on mechanisms by which loss of pro-apoptotic BCL-2 family members contribute to lymphomagenesis.

Successful candidates will be trained to develop an independent research career under the mentorship of Dr. Katz. This is an exciting opportunity to study mouse models of severe apoptotic resistance using state-of-art techniques in molecular, cellular and chemical biology. Motivated candidates with strong written and verbal skills and expertise in immunology, primary human lymphoid cell isolation and culture, or performing large scale screens with subsequent computational analysis preferred.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a 1-2 page description of their research interests together with the names and addresses of three references via e-mail to: samuel.katz@yale.edu
