Full-time, 100% (12 month basis) Instructor in Small Animal Emergency Medicine

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Veterinary Teaching Hospital invites applications for two full-time, 12-month appointments, as Instructors in the Companion Animal and Zoological Medicine (CAZAM) section. The section consists of 12 faculty, 8 house officers, 1 clinical instructor, 5 graduate students and six technicians. We deliver core and elective courses across all four years of the professional curriculum, have a large and diverse research program, serve pet owning clients and the needs of injured and abandoned wildlife, and deliver educational programs for clients and veterinarians locally, nationally and internationally.

Professional opportunities: We are seeking candidates who are team players and interested in utilizing and developing their clinical and teaching skills in a healthy, collaborative, busy and vibrant clinical teaching environment. The ideal candidates would be committed to this opportunity for professional development and advancement.

Personal opportunities: Urbana-Champaign offers the residential advantages of a medium-sized university city, excellent cultural opportunities, and a high quality of life. In 2010, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was ranked in the top four research universities by the Harvard University's Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education in balancing work and home.

Requirements: Preference will be given to candidates who have a demonstrated interest in emergency medicine and willingness to instruct students with varied experience. Candidates must have a DVM degree or equivalent, and have completed an internship or have a minimum of 1 year of post-graduate veterinary experience.

Duties: This position is a 100% appointment in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Medicine.
