Faculty Position in One Health and the Conservation of Free-Ranging Wildlife

The College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in the conservation of free-ranging wildlife, preferably at the level of Full or Associate Professor. The successful candidate will provide bold leadership and vision in landscape-scale approaches to conservation, particularly in terms of policy concerning the interface of wildlife, agriculture, and humans. This “One Health” approach is considered broadly to include, but not be limited to, aspects of disease prevention and diagnosis; nutrition; public health, and economic markets. To have impact at scale, it is expected that scholarly activities will include engagement with various national and international governmental and non-governmental partners. It is expected that scholarly activities will largely be supported by extramural awards. Responsibilities will include research involving design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies that promote wildlife conservation and human health and well-being; improvements in international veterinary education and capacity; production of academic publications on wildlife policy needs, achievements and impacts; engagement of students in international work; and teaching of various aspects of policy, One Health, and wildlife conservation to veterinary students.

Cornell University is a recognized global leader in sustainability sciences, as well as having dynamic and highly progressive initiatives to fulfill our educational and land grant missions. The candidate will benefit from engaging with various cross-campus initiatives and centers including Engaged Cornell, Global Cornell, and the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, as well as with our highly collaborative faculty from a wide variety of related academic departments and programs.

Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Advanced public health or research training including an MPH or PhD will be viewed positively. Clinical duties in zoological medicine and/or at the Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Health Center are not a requirement, but can be accommodated if desired by a qualified, ACZM board-certified candidate.

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