Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Anatomic Pathology
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM) at the University of Calgary is seeking a Veterinary Anatomic Pathologist for a full-time tenure track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor.
The successful applicant will focus on undergraduate teaching and diagnostic service activities but will also be encouraged to establish an independent, or collaborative, externally funded research program. We are particularly interested in individuals with interests in emerging health issues at the wildlife-domestic animal-human interface, but other areas relevant to general diagnostic pathology will be considered. This position offers a range of unique resea-ch opportunities through collaboration with the Cumming School of Medicine, the Alberta Provincial Health Laboratories, the Canadian Wildlife Health Co-operative, the Calgary Zoo, Parks Canada and other groups across Canada.
The successful applicant will be expected to spend approximately 30% of their time supporting diagnostic activities of UCVM and the supervision of practicum rotations in the fourth year of the DVM program. There will also be additional opportunities for graduate teaching depending on the interests of the applicant and in the future there will be opportunities to assist with creating and helping run an anatomic pathology residency training program.
Required qualifications include a DVM, or equivalent degree, and board certification, or board eligibility, in anatomic pathology. An interest in wildlife or large animal pathology would be considered an asset. An advanced graduate degree is desirable and demonstrated teaching excellence is required. The appointment will be at the level of Assistant Professor with salary commensurate with experience.
UCVM is the youngest veterinary medical faculty in Canada and is already well established amongst research-intensive North American veterinary colleges due to the quality of its research programs and the engagement of undergraduate and graduate students with research. There are approximately 70 faculty members, 130 staff, 125 DVM students, 110 graduate students, 25 post-doctoral fellows, and 15 advanced clinical trainees. The DVM program is an integrated core-elective program, with enhanced educational opportunities in defined areas, that combines discipline-based courses with extensive on- and off-campus experiential learning. UCVM uses a distributed veterinary learning community including public and private practice partners to deliver its fourth year practicum program. UCVM is a research-intensive faculty with its research space being closely located with the Cumming School of Medicine providing an outstanding research infrastructure and a unique environment for comparative medical and One Health research. Descriptions of the Faculty, its programs, and its departments can be found online. Applicants wishing more information are encouraged to e-mail vetdean@ucalgary.ca. Located in Calgary, a vibrant, multicultural city of 1,200,000 near the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park, and Lake Louise, the University of Calgary is a research-intensive, comprehensive university that supports innovation in education, research, and service to the community.
