The Department of Pathology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is recruiting a full-time academic hematopathologist. BIDMC is a tertiary care facility with 743 licensed beds and an internationally renowned principal teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School with NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center-affiliated Cancer Center with strong and growing focus on hematologic malignancies.
The BIDMC Department of Pathology has launched new Strategic Initiatives in cutting-edge Precision Diagnostics (including cancer genomics, multiplex biomarker theranostics, and computational/digital pathology).
We are looking for an active, energetic, team-oriented faculty member to help us shape our future agenda and engage in areas that are being actively developed.
In addition to strong hematopathology diagnostic skills, expertise in advanced flow cytometry, molecular diagnostics (including NGS and FISH) and/or coagulation testing are desirable. Strong interest in further developing the crucial role of Pathology in clinical trials is a plus, including new companion diagnostics.
Candidates with a strong clinical, translational, or laboratory-based research program are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates with existing NIH grant funding will be supported by attractive research space and start-up funds to expand their programs.
The successful candidate will join a team of hematopathologists, cytogeneticists, and molecular diagnosticians, residents, and fellows to provide world-class diagnostics for benign and malignant hematology, stem cell transplantation, and the cancer vaccine and T-cell therapies center at BIDMC. Additionally, the candidate will support the vibrant training programs, including pathology residency program, hematopathology fellowship program, and clinical hematology/oncology fellowship program.
Applicants must be board certified in Pathology (AP or AP/CP) and Hematopathology.
Board certification in Molecular Pathology (including NGS) is a significant plus.
The candidate will be appointed to the full-time faculty of Harvard Medical School at an academic rank commensurate with experience.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center consistently ranks as a national leader among independent hospitals in National Institutes of Health funding.

The Harvard-Thorndike Laboratory, the nation's oldest clinical research laboratory, has been located on this site since 1973. BIDMC also shares important clinical and research programs with institutions such as the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, Joslin Diabetes Center and Children's Hospital.
