The Office of the State Pathologist (OSP) is an agency under the aegis of the Department of Justice and Equality, providing independent expert advice on all matters pertaining to forensic pathology. The Office delivers a nationwide, 24/7, year round service throughout the Republic of Ireland. The main activity of the OSP is the performance of post mortem examinations in cases of sudden, unexplained death where a criminal or suspicious element is present. In approximately 15 – 20% of cases, this also involves a scene visit.
Reporting to the Chief State Pathologist, the duties of the State Pathologist include advising An Garda Síochána on all questions pertaining to or involving the science of forensic pathology. The appointee will be required to give evidence to the courts and at inquiries, inquests and investigations concerning his/her examinations, findings and resulting deductions. The appointee will also be required to express an opinion in his or her capacity as State Pathologist on any aspect of forensic pathology or any forensic pathological question or issue that may arise.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a newly qualified or experienced consultant forensic pathologist to join an energetic, proactive team of forensic pathologists in the Office of the State Pathologist.
