|Fellowship in Wildlife Pathology|
The Department of Population Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University (CVM) invites applications for a 12-month fellowship in wildlife pathology with the New York State Cooperative Wildlife Health Program. This program is a partnership between the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the CVM. It focuses on wildlife disease surveillance, disease research and support of NYSDEC policy and staff needs related to wildlife health. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct necropsies and review biopsies for submitted wildlife cases and assist with teaching and supervision of residents, students and trainees. The candidate also will be expected to engage in a research project related to wildlife health which can be tailored to personal interests. Scheduling may be flexible to accommodate board certification studies. The University offers an exciting work environment with opportunities for innovative research, outreach, and collaborations with faculty and external partners active in public health, epidemiology, international conservation work, sustainability, and field ecology.
Applicants must have a DVM degree (or equivalent) and have completed a residency in anatomic pathology. Board certification is a plus but board-eligible applicants will be considered. The successful candidate will have a strong diagnostic pathology background, broad interests in wildlife disease and excellent interpersonal skills.
