The Washington State University (WSU) Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences (VCS) in the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), Pullman, WA seeks to fill a full-time continuous career track (clinical track) or tenure track faculty position in equine internal medicine. The successful applicant will join a dedicated team focused on clinical teaching, clinical service, and scholarship. The position is available immediately. The Department is open to flexible scheduling and novel appointment structures to allow for private sector or other activities.
The Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) is the leading referral center in the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest with over 20,000 patient visits per year. The Equine Medicine service is currently supported by 2 board-certified equine internists, 1 resident (with approval to increase to 2 residents), 3 equine interns, a licensed veterinary technician, and a patient services coordinator. Board-certified equine surgeons, an after-hours equine emergency clinician, radiologists, cardiologists, clinical pathologists, anatomic pathologists, neurologists, oncologists, anesthesiologists, and other specialists provide additional consultation and support for equine patients. State-of-the-art equipment allows for advanced imaging of horses of all sizes including video endoscopy (static and dynamic), magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, digital radiography, and ultrasonography. The hospital has sufficient staff and facilities to support 24-hour critical care services for horses with isolation stalls available for contagious cases. Clinical pathology services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with both point-of-care (stall-side) testing and full laboratory support with cytologic evaluations if required.
Our equine internists currently engage in collaborative research and scholarly activity related to equine infectious diseases, pain management, and exercise physiology. There are opportunities to engage with scientists with active research in infectious disease, immunology, muscle biology, neuroscience, and other fields related to equine medicine. Teaching methodology and scholarship related to teaching are supported by the WSU CVM Teaching Academy. Successful applicants for this position will be provided with the opportunity to work with the Teaching Academy.
The successful applicant will participate in the equine medicine clinical service within the VTH; provide clinical and didactic instruction of professional veterinary students, interns, residents, and graduate students; deliver continuing education programs to veterinarians; and conduct collaborative clinical, applied, or basic research/scholarship within the candidate's area of interest. Expectations for scholarship/research will be greater for a successful tenure track applicant, appropriate to rank. The successful applicant must be able to effectively communicate and work with people of diverse backgrounds.
The candidate must hold a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree or foreign equivalent degree (i.e., BVSc), and be board-certified in Large Animal Internal Medicine (LAIM) by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) or have completed an approved ACVIM (LAIM) residency training program by the appointment start date. Successful candidates must demonstrate a commitment and relevant ability to successfully advocate for diversity and values of diversity and inclusion.
Considerations regarding rank and faculty track will be determined based on the interests and qualifications of the candidate, as will division of time between teaching, clinical duty, and scholarly activity.
For tenure track consideration, candidates must demonstrate a significant record of scholarship. Applicants for an Assistant Professor position must demonstrate potential to establish and maintain an externally funded research program. Applicants for Associate or Full Professor must additionally have an active extramurally-funded research program with a record of peer-reviewed publications and national/international recognition commensurate with the desired rank.
Applicants for career track Associate or Full Professor must have a record of scholarship aligned with effort devoted to scholarship in previous positions commensurate with the desired rank, a higher level of national/international recognition and a higher level of clinical and teaching experience as compared to Assistant Professor applicants.
For both career and tenure track applicants include a record of scholarly productivity consistent with the level of experience and appropriate to rank and track (Assistant/Associate/ Full Career or Tenure), as evidenced by collaborative basic, clinical or applied research and publication of results in peer-reviewed scientific journals, evidence of expertise in teaching, and commitment to provision of outstanding clinical service.
