Academic Pediatric Pathologist, Seattle Children’s Hospital

The demand for pediatric pathology in the Department of Laboratories at Seattle Children’s Hospital continues to grow and our cohesive group of 8 anatomic pathologists seeks an academic, board certified/eligible pediatric pathologist to carry on decades of tradition in providing patient-focused services while engaging in collaborative research and the training of house staff and medical students. In addition to skills in surgical and autopsy pathology, applicants with particular competence in renal pathology, dermatopathology, and/or molecular pathology are especially encouraged to apply. Candidates must possess an M.D. or equivalent degree and qualify for licensure in Washington and a faculty appointment at the University of Washington. The individual will join an interactive and collegial group that is closely linked with a full-service clinical laboratory overseen by 10 additional doctoral staff working with 200 technical staff who perform over 3 million clinical laboratory tests annually, including molecular microbiology, NGS, flow cytometry and biochemical genetics. The SCH clinical and laboratory programs are part of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance combining with the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, that provides ample opportunities for interaction with both clinical and basic science investigators.
