The Department of Biomedical and Diagnostic Sciences at the University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM) invites applications for a faculty appointment in veterinary clinical pathology, available immediately. The appointment will be offered as a tenure- or clinical-track assistant or associate professor, dependent on the individual's interests and qualifications. The successful candidate will join 3 other clinical pathologists and be expected to contribute to diagnostic service, research/scholarship, and teaching, dependent on final appointment parameters. The position can be part-time at 50% effort (primarily service and teaching) up to a full-time, 12 month appointment, the latter providing more time for research with commensurate increases in expectations. Teaching responsibilities in the DVM curriculum include shared participation in a core clinical pathology course and a clinical rotation, with additional opportunities available, including contributions to the graduate program. Compensation will depend upon qualifications and experience. The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University.
The UTCVM is located in Knoxville, a short drive away from the Great Smoky Mountains and from a number of state parks and recreation areas, with many outdoor activities available.
