This is an opportunity to join a dynamic team of two board-certified pathologists and 18 pathology staff members supporting the clinical and research missions of Yerkes National Primate Research Center. The Center’s research programs include studies on infectious diseases (such as HIV and malaria), vaccine development, neuroscience, and transplantation. We maintain a colony of approximately 3,000 nonhuman primates, including rhesus monkeys, cynomolgus monkeys, pigtail macaques, sooty mangabeys, squirrel monkeys, and chimpanzees. A rodent vivarium is also located on site.
The minimum qualifications for this position include a DVM (or equivalent) degree and eligibility for ACVP board certification. While there are no additional requirements, candidates with a PhD degree and/or prior experience with diseases and pathology of nonhuman primates are preferred. Specific training in nonhuman primate pathology will be offered as needed. The primary job responsibilities include providing diagnostic pathology services, both in support of the clinical care of the nonhuman primate and rodent colonies and in support of ongoing research projects. The successful applicant is also expected to engage in collaborative or independent research, and to participate in teaching laboratory animal and primate pathology to laboratory animal veterinary residents. The salary will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience.
Interested individuals must apply online, uploading a CV, letter indicating experience and research interests.
