Bristol-Myers Squibb, New Brunswick, NJ—Industry Anatomic Pathology Fellowship

Company: Bristol-Myers Squibb
Location: New Brunswick, NJ
Job Title: Industry Anatomic Pathology Fellowship


Drug Safety Evaluation (DSE), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS), New Brunswick, NJ, USA Program Offered:

The Department of Pathology in DSE at BMS is offering a 2 to 3-month industry fellowship for students wishing to gain practical experience in toxicologic anatomic pathology. Opportunities may be available for highly motivated board-eligible or recently boarded anatomic pathologists who demonstrate interest in toxicologic pathology. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to observe different phases of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and non-GLP studies conducted in a GLP setting, from study design and protocol review to necropsy, microscopic evaluation, data entry and data interpretation. Studies are conducted in multiple laboratory animal species in the context of preclinical safety assessment, providing participants with exposure to a wide array of background and drug-induced lesions.

Participants will also be involved in consensus and investigative response team meetings with program team members (e.g. general toxicologists/study directors, clinical pathologists, toxicokineticists, immunotoxicologists, laboratory animal veterinarians, genetic/reproductive toxicologists). Participants will also gain insight into the critical role of the study pathologist in characterizing mechanisms of drug pharmacology and toxicity and informing decision-making for drug development. This program is not intended to provide independent research components, but it may provide time and opportunity for small research projects and interactions with other scientists in the department. A stipend will be provided to cover housing and living expenses during the course of training.


Bristol Myers Squibb is a global healthcare company that has been working to discover, develop, and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail. We are committed to scientific excellence and investment in biopharmaceutical research and development to provide innovative, high-quality medicines that address the unmet medical needs of patients with serious diseases. We apply scientific rigor to produce clinical and economic benefit through medicines that improve patients' lives. We strive to make information about our commercialized medicines widely and readily available.

The fellowship will take place in a GLP test facility owned and operated by BMS in New Brunswick, NJ. The facility is a fully staffed laboratory with capabilities for all common ancillary procedures such as flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and laser capture microdissection. There is a total of 7 ACVP-boarded anatomic pathologists and 1 ACVP-boarded clinical pathologist in the DSE pathology department. Access to control tissues from a wide range of laboratory animal species and BMS extensive historical control database provides a strong background in animal species that are not traditionally assessed in the academic residency training (mice, rats, non-human primates, and rabbits). Reviewing toxicology studies in conjunction with BMS pathologists provides a unique opportunity to experience and learn from hands-on training in general toxicologic pathology. Abundant self-study materials are available, including slide sets from GLP and non-GLP studies, digital imaging capability and image archives, journals, and books.


Applicants should be highly motivated, currently enrolled in a veterinary anatomic pathology residency with at least 2 years of experience or have completed a veterinary anatomic pathology residency and be enrolled in a PhD program. Applications should include Curriculum Vitae, a letter of interest, and contact information for a faculty member from their institution willing to serve as a reference.

Please submit your application via e-mail with a subject heading of "Fellowship"
