The VMCVM is seeking an enthusiastic and skilled individual to utilize a robust food animal case load to provide excellence in clinical experiential learning while contributing to scholarly activities that benefit the agriculture and veterinary community. The PMM caseload is approximately 55,000 animals/year with 70% beef (cow-calf and stocker) 25% dairy and 5% small ruminants/porcine. The majority of cases are evaluated in an ambulatory setting with about 300 animals hospitalized in the VTH/year. The mission of the service is to promote excellence in service, teaching, and scholarship, while allowing individual faculty members the opportunity to successfully pursue specific career goals, particularly in research.
Primary job responsibilities will be participation in the clinical PMM service, including clinical instruction and shared participation in emergency coverage, and development of an extramurally-funded research program. Other duties include delivery of didactic and laboratory instruction of pre-clinical students. Contributions to the college's research and scholarship mission are expected to occupy a minimum of 30% of the faculty assignment. An ideal opportunity exists to establish a research program in conjunction with a university-wide initiative in the area of global systems science, with particular emphasis on population health and epidemiology. The position may have a limited appointment in Virginia Cooperative Extension to deliver food animal extension in the Commonwealth.
Applicants must possess a DVM or equivalent degree. A graduate degree is required as well as a strong interest or record of scholarly achievement.
