The Department of Pathology at Duke University School of Medicine seeks a surgical pathologist with experience/interest in breast pathology to provide diagnostic services. Applicants should have board certification in anatomic pathology and ideally be fellowship trained in breast pathology or have extensive experience in the specialty. Competitive candidates are those highly committed to patient care, who have excellent interpersonal skills, and who seek to advance the field of breast pathology through original and collaborative scholarship. Additional training or experience in gynecologic pathology is desirable but not required.

The Department has 89 faculty members with over 30 residents and fellows in anatomic and clinical pathology. Our Surgical Pathology service processes over 50,000 accessions annually and DUHS Clinical Laboratories perform over 16 million tests annually. The Division of Breast Pathology at Duke consists of four Breast Pathologists and is known for its expertise in diagnosis and multidisciplinary care of patients with diseases of the breast. We work closely with our breast surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, and radiologists to provide the best patient care.

Diagnostic responsibilities include neoplastic (including biomarker studies) and non-neoplastic breast pathology as well as accompanying multidisciplinary conferences. Experience in gynecological pathology would be beneficial, but not required. 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. Clinical responsibilities will be tailored to provide time for collaborative 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 several major universities in the region, has made the area culturally diverse, economically vibrant, and nationally recognized as a great place to live and work.
