Population Health and PathobiologyAbout the Department:
The mission of the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology is to recruit, train, inspire, and graduate Doctors of Veterinary Medicine of exemplary knowledge, skill, and character. In order to maintain the intellectual and professional climate necessary to accomplish this mission, the department’s faculty will advance veterinary medical science through innovative basic and applied research, inspired mentoring of students (undergraduate, professional, residents, and graduate), excellence in clinical and diagnostic services, and innovative extension and engagement activities.
North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is a dynamic community whose members are dedicated to preparing veterinarians and veterinarian scientists while advancing animal and human health from the cellular level through entire ecosystems.
With the graduation of its first class in 1985, the CVM is one of the younger veterinary programs in the country. Despite its relative youth, the College has gained international recognition on the strength of its teaching, research, engagement, and patient care efforts and is ranked among the top 5 of the nation’s 28 colleges of veterinary medicine in the yearly U.S. News & World Report survey.
Located on 180 acres near downtown Raleigh, the College encompasses 20 buildings on the main Centennial Biomedical Campus. Instruction is in three departments—Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences, and Population Health Pathobiology. In addition to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, there are programs leading to master and doctoral degrees in several areas with numerous opportunities for specialization.
The college is committed to practicing inclusivity, making community a priority and promoting innovation. We embrace effective leadership and we champion personal and professional growth.Essential Job Duties:
The Department of Population Health and Pathobiology has an exciting opportunity for an Assistant/Associate Professor of Ruminant Medicine and/or Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor of Ruminant Medicine.
The Ruminant Health group includes both in-hospital and ambulatory services. The position will primarily support the Ruminant Medicine Service, which sees approximately 600 cases/year. This includes a mix of small ruminants, camelids and cattle involving primary and referral level care for medicine, surgery and theriogenology in both production and pet livestock. The service has a significant role in training all veterinary students in basic care of ruminants through hands-on labs at the on-campus Teaching Animal Unit farms, which will be opening a new dairy teaching facility in 2022.
The successful candidate is expected to further the NC State CVM’s goal of being a values-driven organization. Within the Ruminant Health group, a collaborative approach is utilized to provide outstanding clinical service, in-depth and hands-on training to veterinary students, and impactful research and extension. The successful candidate will be responsible for participating in the clinical service of ruminant medicine and surgery in the veterinary teaching hospital including after-hours emergencies and training of 4th year veterinary students and house officers. Teaching in the DVM preclinical curriculum will include lectures, small group discussions, and hands-on laboratories.
In addition, the successful candidate should have experience in teaching ruminant medicine and have an interest in clinically relevant cattle and/or small ruminant research. For those seeking a tenure track position, development of an independent research program relevant to an aspect of ruminant health is expected. Clinical experience is essential.
