Junior Pathologist

Salary: £40,000 – £43,000

Ref: 5477


As one of the world’s largest contract research organisations, Envigo contributes to public safety by performing toxicity studies with a range of pharmaceuticals and chemicals, administered in accordance with a range of different protocols. While the care we afford our animals is of the highest possible standard, our need for rigorous pathology is equally vital. The diversity of work offers a great opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of species and compound classes, and we will give you every support to build a career in pathology.


In this role, you’ll work as part of a friendly and supportive team. You’ll be trained to examine tissues for pathological changes and use your knowledge and judgement to interpret them. Your reports will be used for providing feedback to clients and assisting in the registration process with various regulatory bodies. As well as reading slides and making written observations, you’ll attend macroscopic post mortems and review on gross findings. You’ll also work with the Director of Pathology to maintain the highest reporting standards, and liaise with clients during peer reviews.


You could be looking to take your first step into pathology, or you may already be working as a pathologist in a CRO, academia, a pharmaceutical company or government. Either way, you’ll be MRCVS qualified or equivalent and keen to expand your knowledge of toxicological pathology. You’ll also have clear opportunities for progression, including publishing and presenting, attending modules and conferences and studying for a postgraduate qualification in pathology such as the FRCPath.


Vacancies exist at both our Huntingdon and Eye sites. For an informal discussion contact the Director of Pathology on 0044 (0)1480 892186
