Academic Professional Track (Non-Tenure): Open Rank-Clinical Pathology

West, TX

Texas A&M University

Description
The Department of Veterinary Pathobiology (VTPB) in the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) (http://vetmed.tamu.edu/) at Texas A&M University invites applications for one clinical track assistant, associate, or full professor position, 11 month full time position, to serve as a veterinary clinical pathologist in the new 2+2 DVM program at VERO (Veterinary Education, Research & Outreach https://vetmed.tamu.edu/vero/) on the campus of West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) in Canyon, Texas. The anticipated start date for this position is June 1, 2021. Developed as part of the Texas commitment to animals and agriculture, VERO represents a dynamic partnership between the CVMBS and WTAMU and is set in the heart of one of the most productive animal agricultural regions in the world. VERO provides unprecedented opportunities for veterinary education and collaboration with industry partners and stakeholders from the region and across the nation. The position involves potential interaction with the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) in Canyon, Texas. Canyon, Texas is located near Palo Duro Canyon State Park, home to the second largest canyon in the country. This area provides scenic hiking, biking, camping, and horseback riding. Additionally, winter skiing in Taos, NM is within driving distance.

The successful candidate will have an academic home in VTPB and will work collaboratively with VERO-based and College Station-based faculty members to administer the 2+2 veterinary curriculum. Applicants must hold a DVM or equivalent degree and be board eligible or board certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) in clinical pathology. The successful applicant will be expected to devote approximately 50-70% effort to teaching, 15-35% to clinical diagnostics, 5-10% to scholarship, and 10% to academic citizenship (service). Scholarship may include collaborative research or scholarship of teaching and learning in the applicant's area of interest. This is a new program and adjustments in the position design and flexibility in the faculty appointment will be considered.

Teaching responsibilities will include delivery of the clinical laboratory medicine and applied organ dysfunction courses in the 2nd year curriculum to a small cohort of eighteen veterinary students. This curriculum is integrated and highly experiential, and individuals with interest in small-group teaching and active learning are encouraged to apply. Instruction in clinical laboratory medicine will focus on providing foundational clinical pathology skills and components, while instruction in the applied organ dysfunction course will involve coordinating integrated teaching teams to deliver content that focuses on critical thinking, defining medical problems, determining differential diagnoses, and providing supportive treatment plans. The successful applicant will be expected to "cross-over" and teach in other courses to reinforce content related to their subject matter interest across the 2+2 program.

The opportunity to have a diagnostic medicine service component exists for interested and qualified candidates through the potential for joint appointment with TVMDL in their brand-new full-service laboratory on the WTAMU campus. TVMDL's mission is to promote animal health and protect agricultural, companion animal and public health in Texas - and beyond - through excellence in veterinary diagnostic services. The agency is a member of the Texas A&M University System and is composed of two full-service laboratories, located in College Station and Canyon, and two poultry laboratories, located in Center and Gonzales.
