The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (VMCVM), in Blacksburg, VA, invites applications from qualified individuals for a full time 12 month position in Large Animal Surgery at the rank of Clinical Instructor.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and skilled individual to help us attain these goals and who aspires to join the existing team in driving the large animal surgery program. The surgery section will include clinical and tenure track faculty with varied individual responsibilities based on professional interest, expertise, and faculty assignment. This is designed to promote excellence in service, teaching, and scholarship, while allowing individual faculty members the opportunity to successfully pursue specific career goals.
