Duke Faculty Position in Pathology, Neuropathology



The Department of Pathology of the Duke University Medical Center seeks an academically oriented neuropathologist to provide diagnostic services.  Applicants should have board certification in anatomic pathology and be board certified or eligible in neuropathology.  Diagnostic responsibilities will include surgical neuropathology, frozen sections and autopsy neuropathology.   Experience in muscle and/or ocular pathology would be beneficial. Clinical responsibilities will be tailored to provide time for collaborative research.


The Department has 68 faculty members with 25 residents and fellows in anatomic (including neuropathology) and clinical pathology. Our surgical pathology service processes over 50,000 accessions annually, of which 2500 are surgical neuropathology, muscle and nerve biopsies. Autopsy neuropathology consultations are provided for approximately 230 cases per year. DUHS clinical laboratories perform over 16 million tests annually. The environment at Duke provides rich opportunities for exceptional clinical and translational research, both within the Department and in other Centers of Excellence in the Medical Center. Applicants should be committed to excellent patient care, as well as teaching, scholarship, and research. Teaching responsibilities include interactions with medical students, residents, fellows and trainees in multiple departments. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.  Women and under-represented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.


The greater Triangle area of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill is family-friendly, while offering young singles many options for an active outdoor and social life. The Research Triangle Park, a globally prominent high-tech research and development center conceived around the three academic centers in the region, has made the area culturally diverse, economically resilient, and nationally recognized as a great place to live and work.
