Printable version

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces an outstanding opportunity for a full-time clinical track or tenure track faculty position in Dermatology and Otology. Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. The candidate must have completed an ACVD or ECVD residency and be board-certified or board-eligible. An advanced degree or equivalent research experience is desirable for tenure-track candidates. The appointee will join the Dermatology and Otology Service within the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, which is currently comprised of two faculty members, two residents and one technician.

The Dermatology and Otology Service is located within the comprehensive Veterinary Medical Center and referral center with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, including video otoscopy, digital radiography, computed tomography, 3 Tesla MRI as well as endoscopy, cystoscopy, laser lithotripsy, laparoscopy, ultrasonography, and a 24-7 small and large animal emergency and critical care.

Teaching responsibilities will include lectures, laboratories, and clinical teaching of dermatology and otology and related topics to students, interns, residents, and graduate students. The appointee is expected to foster a robust and diverse caseload in dermatology and otology, including allergic skin disease, parasitic diseases, immune-mediated disorders, endocrine and metabolic disease, otitis, keratinization disorders, claw disease, and infectious disease through the delivery of efficient and effective service to clients and referring private practitioners and the provision of high-quality patient care.

Clinical-track candidates will be assigned approximately 75% time in clinics, including patient management, client service, clinical teaching of students, didactic and laboratory teaching and advanced training of interns and residents. Sponsored research is not required for clinical-track faculty, but clinical research, publications or other scholarly activities to advance clinical veterinary medicine are expected and encouraged. Tenure-track faculty typically have a 50% commitment to clinical service and clinical teaching with the remainder devoted to didactic and laboratory teaching, and to developing research/scholarship, including collaboration with other scientists, advising of graduate student research, and publications in peer-reviewed journals. Faculty are also expected to be involved in professional and community outreach, continuing education, committee service, and curriculum development.

Faculty are encouraged to develop collaborative endeavors with clinicians and scientists within the College and across the University. Excellent collaborative opportunities are available in the Departments of Veterinary Biosciences and Veterinary Preventive Medicine within the College as well as other units across the University campus, including the comprehensive OSU Health Sciences Center, which is within walking distance of the College. The College of Medicine (http://medicine.osu.edu), and College of Pharmacy (www.pharmacy.ohio-state.edu) are a just a few of the resources available to clinicians and research scientists interested in dermatology and otology and related fields. Additionally, collaborative opportunities exist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (http://www.nationwidechildrens.org) and the Riverside Methodist Hospital (http://www.ohiohealth.com).
