Description:

The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Clinical Sciences and Advanced Medicine invite applications for a Lecturer position in Small Animal Radiation Oncology. 42 weeks of the radiation oncologist’s time will be devoted to clinical service in small animal radiation oncology.
