Academic Gastrointestinal/Liver Pathologist
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is inviting applications for an academically oriented, fellowship trained gastrointestinal pathologist with clinical or translational research accomplishment and potential. Fellowship training in both the tubular GI and liver services and participation in both services is expected. Applicants must be eligible for a California medical license. The successful candidate will join a subspecialized GI pathology service which supports the clinical and academic mission of the internationally recognized programs in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Tumors, Colorectal Cancer, Pancreatic and Biliary Disease and Liver Transplantation. Substantial collaborative research potential is available with the GI programs in medicine, surgery and oncology. A secondary area of expertise or interest in surgical pathology would be highly desirable, particularly in gynecologic pathology, head and neck pathology, breast pathology or cytopathology.
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, located at the junction of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, is an 886 licensed bed quaternary medical care facility and is the largest private not-for-profit provider of health care on the West Coast, serving more than 9 million people in Los Angeles County, treating more cancer patients than any other medical center in Southern California. Candidates will be employed by Beverly Pathology, an independently contracted pathology group under the Cedars-Sinai Medical Foundation providing exclusive pathology services to the Medical Center.
The Department, with more than 50 faculty, oversees a clinical operation of over approximately 5 million laboratory tests, robust outreach and consultative referral practices. The Division of Anatomic Pathology processes over 60,000 surgical pathology and 25,000 cytopathology cases annually. All faculty participate in teaching residents, fellows and students and engage in scholarship, including basic, translational and/or clinical research. We are also interested in GI pathologist-scientists who conduct basic and translational research and can provide high quality laboratory space and startup funds for such individuals.
Eligibility for an academic appointment in the Cedars-Sinai Health System Professorial Program is required.
Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, letter of interest, and the names of three references to:
