Tenure Track or Clinical Track Faculty Position in
Oncology
Assistant, Associate or Full Professor

The Department of Clinical Sciences and the Veterinary Health Center (VHC), College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University, invites applications for a tenure-track or clinical-track faculty position in veterinary medical oncology at the rank of assistant, associate, or full Professor.  Appointment to tenure-track or clinical-track will be dependent upon the career goals, qualifications, and preference of the successful applicant. 

The successful candidate will join an established oncology service with one board-certified medical oncologist, an ACVIM-approved medical oncology residency program and dedicated oncology nurses. The candidate will be expected to participate in clinical service, veterinary and post-DVM student instruction, research, and support the academic missions of the Department and VHC.  Directed clinical service in the KSU VHC is required for this position.  A clinical-track position would have a majority clinical service/teaching appointment.  A tenure-track candidate would have an approximate 50% time commitment for clinical service/teaching.  A candidate for a tenure-track position would also be expected to initiate and develop an independent or collaborative research program and support the scientific training of house officers and graduate students.  The oncology service maintains a busy and diverse caseload with an active clinical research program.  Strong in-house internal medicine, cardiology, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, dermatology, ophthalmology, diagnostic imaging, anesthesia and zoological medicine services provide referral support for the oncology caseload.  Equipment available for clinical service and research includes on-site helical CT, MRI, scintigraphy, Sr-90 plesiotherapy and a 6MV linear accelerator with electron capabilities and a 80-leaf multileaf collimator.  

Applicants must possess a DVM or equivalent degree and have board certification from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Specialty of Oncology, have completed oncology residency training or be enrolled in the third year of oncology residency training.   Research training and advanced degree(s) are desirable for tenure-track candidates. Salary and rank will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience and qualifications.
