Individuals having a DVM degree, or equivalent, and demonstrated research capacity and performance in a population medicine area of importance to the dairy industry are urged to apply. Advanced research training is required with a PhD, or equivalent, desirable but not required. Strong preference will be given to individuals who have developed their dairy production medicine skills through advanced training. In addition, applicants should have knowledge and experience in extension and application of dairy production systems. Other desirable qualities of the successful candidate include experience in conducting research, strong interpersonal skills, leadership talent, public speaking experience, and the ability to work in collaborative research, clinical, and teaching environments. Individuals must possess and maintain a valid driver's license.
Clinical teaching and service within the Ambulatory and Production Medicine Clinic is the primary responsibility of this position. Additional duties, shared with three other faculty, include co-supervision and training of three house officers and back-up emergency duty. Clinical responsibilities require veterinary experience with all large animal species; however, the emphasis of this position is with dairy cattle. The clinic sees approximately 45,000 animals per year, 85% of which are dairy cattle and includes a bull stud. The remainder of the caseload is made up of horses, small ruminants, swine, and camelids. Establishment of an independent, extramurally funded research program is expected in addition to collaborative research efforts. Specific areas of strength within the department and the college include epidemiology, production medicine, shelter medicine, food and waterborne diseases, wildlife health, diagnostic sciences, and genetics. Excellent opportunities exist for investigative collaborations within the College of Veterinary Medicine and with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Didactic teaching of dairy-related material in core courses and relevant elective courses is also expected along with graduate education through mentoring. Distribution of effort will be determined in accordance with service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate's expertise and academic goals in production medicine.
The individual will be a key participant providing academic leadership to the College's mission in dairy production medicine and veterinary public health. This may include developing, maintaining, and teaching in special training programs, public advocacy for the profession and College, and curricular oversight as the College recruits and trains veterinarians for future roles in food-supply veterinary medicine.
Salary and rank will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.
