*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Department of Population Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences at the College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, invites applications for a tenure-track, 12-month faculty position in dairy-production and food-supply veterinary medicine. This appointee will be an assistant professor in the Ambulatory and Production Medicine Clinic.

Individuals having a D.V.M. degree or equivalent and demonstrated research capacity and performance (Ph.D. preferred) in an area related to population medicine of importance to the dairy industry are urged to apply. 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 dairy-production systems and their impact outside of academia. Other desirable qualities of the successful candidate include experience in conducting epidemiological research, strong interpersonal skills, leadership talent, public-speaking experience, and the ability to work in collaborative research, clinical, and teaching environments.

The responsibilities of the position will include: providing clinical service on local farms, co-supervising three house officers, sharing backup emergency duties with other faculty, conducting research, and teaching in the DVM curriculum. The candidate is envisioned to spend 50% effort in clinical service including clinical teaching; the remainder of the effort will be 35% research and 15% didactic teaching. The clinic sees about 35,000 animals per year, 85% of which are dairy cattle and includes a bull stud. The remainder of the caseload, shared amongst all clinic members, is made up of horses, small ruminants, swine, and camelids.

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. The position also includes extension and outreach to the dairy industry, related agribusiness, and other relevant societal groups. This may be enhanced by a joint appointment in the Department of Animal Sciences, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University.

The successful candidate’s responsibilities will include contribution to the University’s research in dairy-herd health and -production medicine and veterinary public health. This should be done through extramurally generated grants; collaborative efforts may supplement these. Excellent opportunities exist for research and collaborations within the Veterinary College and with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Teaching of dairy-related material in core courses and in relevant elective courses is expected. Clinical teaching of large animal primary care and dairy production medicine will be through practice in the Ambulatory and Production Medicine Clinic. In addition, maintaining and developing DVM elective courses, graduate education, and special training programs in the applicant’s focus area will be part of the teaching program.

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will create a climate that attracts students of all races and nationalities and both genders. Women, underrepresented minorities, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Salary will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience. For more information, please contact Dr. Charles Guard, Faculty Search Committee Chair, at Prospective candidates should upload their application materials (cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of future research interests [max. 3 pages]) to Academic Jobs Online job number 2778 together with 3 letters of reference.
