Tenure Track Position - Large Animal Internal Medicine

The Department of Health Management at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), University of Prince Edward Island, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Large Animal Internal Medicine (LAIM) at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications and experience. In addition to provision of clinical service, duties will include teaching in clinical, laboratory and didactic settings in the DVM program as well as LAIM resident/graduate student training. Minimal qualifications are a DVM degree (or equivalent), and Diplomate status or successfully completed a residency approved by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine or relevant specialty (i.e. ECEIM, ECBHM) with the goal of achieving Diplomate status. A postgraduate degree is strongly desired. The applicant must be eligible for licensure by the Prince Edward Island Veterinary Medical Association. Details on eligibility can be found at http://www.peivma.com/

The LAIM caseload consists of horses (~65%) and food animals (~35%) with strong collaborative interactions with other large animal disciplines to optimize student teaching, patient care and client satisfaction. The successful applicant will share teaching, clinical and emergency duties with two other LAIM faculty. To be successful the applicant must be an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher.  The candidate must also have a strong interest in clinical service and scholarly activity, including conducting independent and collaborative research. The breakdown between time dedicated to clinical service and scholarly activity may be adjusted to dovetail with the strengths or interest of the successful candidate. Applicants with species-specific training (i.e. equine or food animal) and interest in critical care are encouraged to apply.

Salary is commensurate with credentials and experience.  Full-time faculty receive a comprehensive fringe benefits package, with benefit details provided at time of offer in accordance with the university’s collective agreement. This appointment is subject to final budgetary approval.

The AVC is committed to teaching, research and service, and is well prepared to meet the challenges of these areas. The college is fully accredited by the CVMA and AVMA.
