Neuropathology Blog Initiates Job Listing Feature

I am today initiating an open position list on Neuropathology Blog. In the column to the right, I will be adding neuropathology positions as I become aware of them. I have inaugurated the process by listing three open positions, along with contact information. First, Rush University Medical Center is looking for a neuropathologist to replace the illustrious Dr. Liz Cochran, who has moved to the Medical College of Wisconsin. Secondly, the esteemed Dr. Mark Cohen is looking for a neuropathology colleague at Case Western Reserve University. Finally, Genentech in South San Francisco, CA is looking for a neuropathologist. If you hear of other positions that are available, please write in so that I can add to the list. Good luck to the job seekers. And thanks to Dr. Peter Cummings for suggesting this feature!

Esteemed?

The check is in the mail...

Though there was a bit of waffling last year, we now agree that we are looking for a white-collar neuropathologist to join yours truly, who will hold down the blue-collar duties. We've had a number of kick-@$$ researchers join us at Case, particularly in the area of neuro-oncology, and the money seems to be pouring in. I've got way too many balls in the air (and am having way too much fun), so I think this is a totally sweet opportunity for someone who wants to ease on down the road to the life of an academic neuropathologist.

Ciao for now,
A-86 (OK...Mark Cohen)

Slight correction to my above post: Dr ZuRhein discovered the causative agent of PML (JC virus) at UW-Madison in 1971 rather than discovered the entity PML. It was described in 1958 at MGH by E.P. Richardson and colleagues. Sorry for the typo!

We at the Medical College are delighted to have Dr Cochran coming our way...she will be replacing the beloved Dr Khang-Cheng Ho, who is retiring next June. He is a legendary teacher at MCW and will be missed, though he informs me that he is entertaining the idea of returning to Taiwan to teach at his alma mater med school. I hope he reconsiders and decides to keep teaching in Milwaukee!

I know all of this because I was showing him a case today from our Children's Hospital and overheard him chatting with Dr ZuRhein, a "neuropathology legend" who discovered the JC virus, the etiology of PML (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy), at the University of WI - Madison. Then he offered to let me chat with her - what an honor! Anyway, I wanted to share that unusual opportunity with you all.

Ciao!

Thanks for that historical information, Chris. And, as someone who knows Liz Cochran, I can tell you that if anyone can fill Dr. Ho's shoes, Dr. Cochran can. You are lucky to get her!!

Another historical note: both Drs. Ho & Cochran were trained by Uros Roesmann, now residing "somewhere in Montana".
