Faculty Position in Diagnostic Imaging

The Department of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a position in the Section of Diagnostic Imaging. The Section includes two tenure-track and two clinical-track faculty members with the goals of supporting robust pre-clinical and clinical research programs, providing excellent clinical/diagnostic services in the Hospital, and maintaining a strong teaching and outreach program. The successful candidate would join a section of four board-certified radiologists supported by seven experienced, licensed technicians (LVT and RT), four imaging residents and a full-time biomedical engineer working in a comprehensive, state-of-the art teaching and referral hospital. Approximately 10,000 imaging examinations are performed annually.

Diagnostic imaging equipment includes two multi-plate AGFA CR readers, two wireless Canon DR detectors, a Phillips RF “special procedures” room, a flat-panel Ziehm C-arm for intra-operative imaging, a Toshiba Vantage Atlas® 1.5 T MR and a 16 slice Toshiba Aquilion-LB® CT both equipped for small and large animal examinations, two planar gamma cameras linked to a NuQuest computer, isolation facilities for radioiodine therapy, and two ultrasound units (Phillips iU22 and ATL 5000) with 5 transducers each. The Imaging equipment is integrated via DICOM modality work-list through the medical record system (UVIS) and images are archived and viewed with Carestream PACS, including both diagnostic and browser-independent web software (PC, Mac, iPad). Integrated 3-D software is included. Three diagnostic workstations are equipped with dual, 3 MP monitors.

Board certification in Veterinary Radiology (ACVR or ECVDI) is preferred, but candidates who have recently completed an approved residency and are board eligible in Veterinary Radiology will be considered.Candidates that are in the process of completing an approved residency and will be board eligible at the completion of their residency training program will also be considered. Residents in the process of successfully completing an approved residency with the expectation that they will be board eligible will be considered for an appointment after the completion of their residency training program.

Distribution of effort in the Section and Department will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate’s expertise and academic goals in diagnostic imaging. Clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals, lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and independent and collaborative research are negotiable. Extensive opportunities for collaborative research exist at the College and University, including Weill Medical College and technology campuses in New York City.

Clinical duties require flexible working hours that may include daytime, evening, and weekend responsibilities. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with all of the sections in the Hospital.
