Tenure Track Position - Ruminant Farm Service & Public Health

The Department of Health Management at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), University of Prince Edward Island, invites applications for a tenure-track position in farm service and public health at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications and experience.  The successful applicant will join an established program with three other farm service clinicians covering dairy, beef, small ruminant and swine health care through the AVC Farm Service Division.  In addition to the provision of clinical services, duties will include: teaching in clinical, laboratory and classroom settings in our DVM program, and establishment of an independent or collaborative research program. Minimal qualifications include a DVM degree and a relevant post-graduate degree. The candidate must be eligible for general licensure with the Prince Edward Island Veterinary Medical Association.  A PhD degree in public health or epidemiology is strongly desired.  ABVP Diplomate status would be considered an asset for residency training.  

This clinical position will have a bovine emphasis, but experience in small ruminant practice will be considered an asset.  The current farm service section at AVC is a dynamic group of production animal clinicians who have a strong focus on population medicine. The selected candidate will enjoy the support of a full-service teaching hospital and diagnostic service (upei.ca/avc).    The position will have an opportunity for scholarly activity and teaching in food animal production, antimicrobial use and public health.

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 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. We are also fully accredited by the CVMA and AVMA. The AVC is the regional veterinary college for Atlantic Canada and is situated on the country’s beautiful east coast.  There are currently ~250 DVM students, over 50 graduate students.  Find out more about Prince Edward Island, the University of Prince Edward Island and the Atlantic Veterinary College at:  www.gov.pe.ca, www.upei.ca, and www.upei.ca/~avc.
