State of Montana Veterinary Diagnostic Pathologist in Bozeman, Montana

The Montana Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (MVDL) seeks applications for a diagnostic Anatomic Pathologist position. MVDL exists as a bureau within the Animal Health and Food Safety Division of the Montana Department of Livestock, and is a full-service, AAVLD-accredited veterinary diagnostic laboratory. The laboratory performs approximately 200,000 tests per year on a wide variety of domestic and non-domestic animal species. For more information on the laboratory, please

We seek applicants with a strong interest in diagnostic pathology and client service, as well as demonstrated experience and confidence in veterinary pathology and accurate, timely diagnosis. Upon joining our team, the successful candidate will perform gross and histologic pathology evaluations and interpretations, participate in client consultation, and potentially provide supervision and oversight for the histology and clinical pathology sections of the laboratory.

Although not formally associated with Montana State University, MVDL is located on the MSU campus, and there are opportunities for interactions with university faculty and students, depending on interest. MVDL is a relatively small diagnostic lab, but is poised for growth, with multiple current and upcoming advances in client service and outreach. Initial programming and cost analysis for a new, state of the art diagnostic laboratory building are in process, with the potential to progress to full design and construction within the next 1-2 years. Loan repayment (competitive through USDA VMLRP) has been provided for veterinary professionals at the laboratory in the past, and new employees would also be eligible for this program. The Bozeman area is consistently ranked among the most desirable places to live in the nation. A small, friendly, college-town atmosphere paired with many conveniences typically only available in much larger cities, as well as an abundance of nearby outdoor recreation, make this region an ideal place to settle.

Qualified applicants will have (1) a DVM or equivalent degree, (2) specialty board certification in anatomic pathology by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP), (3) eligibility for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in the State of Montana, and (4) relevant experience working as a diagnostic veterinary pathologist. Excellence in written and oral communication is expected.
