Faculty Position in Cardiology

The Department of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure track Cardiology faculty position in the Section of Cardiology. This will result in a total of two tenure-track cardiologists, one part-time cardiologist and a visiting cardiologist in support of the electrophysiology program with the goals of engaging in robust pre-clinical and clinical research programs, providing excellent cardiology services in the Hospital, and maintaining a strong teaching and outreach program. The successful candidate would join a section supported by 2 licensed technicians (LVT), and two cardiology residents in a comprehensive, state-of-the art teaching and referral hospital.

The Cornell University Hospital for Animals is equipped with extensive therapeutic and diagnostic equipment including a Philips Epic 7 echocardiographic imaging system with transthoracic three-dimensional transducers and two-dimensional pediatric transesophageal probe, one electronic electrocardiograph, in-house Forest Medical Holter system, Ziehm C-Arm fluoroscope, Toshiba Aquilion Large-Bore 16-slice Computed Tomography unit, Medtronic LifePak defibrillator, and Workmate Claris St. Jude system equipped with EP-4 Cardiac stimulator and Ampere radiofrequency generator for electrophysiology and hemodynamic signal acquisition, pacing and radiofrequency ablation. Moreover, we are planning the construction of a state-of-the-art interventional radiology suite, and adding an Abbott Ensite System to perform high-density electroanatomic 3-D mapping as part of the expansion of the cardiac electrophysiology program.

Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Board certification in veterinary cardiology (ACVIM or ECVIM) is preferred but candidates currently enrolled in cardiology residency training programs are welcome to apply. Clinical and/or basic science research experience is desirable.

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 cardiology. Clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (companion animals, equine and farm animals, exotics), lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and independent and collaborative research expectations 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.

Salary, rank and title will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.

Effective immediately, all new Cornell hires, regardless of work location, must be fully vaccinated with an FDA- or WHO- authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption by December 8, 2021, or before their start date if after December 8.
