The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (VMCVM), Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Blacksburg, VA, invites applications from energetic, qualified individuals for a full-time, calendar year, tenure track faculty position in theriogenology. Qualified applicants will be expected to undertake applied and/or clinical research in canine theriogenology. Approximately 50% of the faculty assignment will be dedicated to research. An endowment supporting research in canine theriogenology will serve as a basis of support for part of these activities. The successful applicant will be expected develop an externally funded research portfolio and to mentor graduate students in that discipline area. The appointee will also participate in the instruction of theriogenology to DVM students and attending to theriogenology cases in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Blacksburg. The current caseload has a strong emphasis in small animal and bovine theriogenology. The appointee may also share in provision of after-hours on-call with two other board certified theriogenologists. The successful applicant will provide a significant contribution to the residency training program in comparative theriogenology.
Applicants must possess a DVM or equivalent degree. A higher research focused degree (Masters/PhD) is required. Diplomate status in the American College of Theriogenologists is preferred; however, appropriately qualified board eligible candidates will be considered. The ideal candidate will demonstrate experience in theriogenology based research and ideally have broad clinical experience in comparative theriogenology.
