ACADEMIC NEUROPATHOLOGIST



The Department of Pathology at The University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine seeks candidates for an Assistant, Associate or Full Professor position on either the tenure track or non-tenure clinical track to join an active neuropathology division. Physician-scientist candidates with productive research programs are welcome to apply.  



The neuropathology service at the University of Iowa encompasses a broad range of neurosurgical, neuromuscular, and autopsy specimens.  Many of the neuromuscular disease biopsies are referral cases from around the United States and Canada.  The evaluation of postmortem brains supports a busy hospital autopsy service and an active Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office.  Neuropathology faculty are involved in training pathology, neurology, child neurology, and neurosurgery house staff.  They teach students in both lecture and small group formats for the medical school, allied health programs, and graduate school programs.



The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital opened in 2017.  These expanded pediatric patient services provide an opportunity for individuals with dual neuropathology and pediatric pathology expertise, experience, or interests.



The autopsy service at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is directed and primarily staffed by three forensic pathologists. The University of Iowa forensic pathologists serve as appointed Johnson County Medical Examiners in a high functioning, well-staffed medical examiner’s office. In addition to Johnson County, medical examiner autopsies are drawn from seven other counties in southeast Iowa.



Applications should include a CV, a letter of application containing a statement of career goals, and the names and addresses of three individuals who could provide letters of reference.
