The Department of Pathobiological Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, is seeking candidates for a clinical- or tenure-track faculty position in the field of anatomic pathology to join departmental faculty with expertise in infectious diseases (immunology, parasitology, bacteriology, virology, epidemiology, and public health) and comparative pathology (anatomic and clinical). Minimum requirements include a DVM or equivalent, ACVP or ECVP board certification or eligibility, and licensed or eligible for licensure in Wisconsin. Two years of post-residency experience in diagnostic anatomic pathology and research experience and/or a PhD are preferred but not required. The position is geared toward early career pathologists at the assistant professor or junior associate professor level.
The Pathology faculty are collegial team oriented and are enthusiastic about the prospects of furthering the development of pathology at UW-Madison in collaboration with the talents and ideas of new faculty members. The UW School of Veterinary Medicine/UW Veterinary Care is an impressive workplace with enthusiastic students, technologists, residents and other faculty specialists who work together to provide excellent veterinary medical care and to advance the field of veterinary medicine with compassion and new discoveries. UW Veterinary Care supports 20 specialty sections, including 24/7 emergency service.
The selected individual will support UW Veterinary Care through performance of anatomic pathology service (necropsy and surgical biopsy). The section also provides pathology services to the Milwaukee County Zoo and limited services to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The selected individual will assist in the training of anatomic pathology residents, contribute to the professional veterinary student instructional program, and also may contribute to other courses in the veterinary medical, undergraduate, or graduate student curricula. In addition to clinical service and instruction, the selected individual will be expected to develop an active scholarly program. For an individual on the clinical track, this could include advancing the discipline of anatomic pathology through creation and dissemination of new knowledge and participating in collaborative research by providing expertise to clinical research (case reports, translational research) or basic science animal-based research conducted by faculty who would benefit from the insights and expertise of an anatomic pathologist. If the individual has sufficient research training and credentials to be appointed on the tenure rack, it is expected she or he will develop an extramurally funded research program resulting in peer-reviewed publications. Finally, participation in departmental and university service and a commitment to fostering a diverse academic environment are expected.
Outstanding collaborative research opportunities exist within the School of Veterinary Medicine and throughout the University, including the Wisconsin Institutes of Medical Research (WIMR), the School of Medicine and Public Health and the Milwaukee County Zoo, among others. Also, the city of Madison and surrounding area are home to a large and very active community of veterinary and human pathologists from both UW (e.g., Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (WVDL), the Wisconsin Primate Center (WPC), the Research Animal Resources and Compliance Center (RARC) and the School of Medicine and Public Health) and non-UW entities (e.g., National Wildlife Health Center, Marshfield Laboratories, Covance, and Antech) and there are many opportunities to interact with members of this community, both socially and professionally.
The campus culture of collaboration and collegiality and the pleasant lifestyle offered by Madison provide an outstanding environment for an academic career. The University of Wisconsin–Madison considers its Veterinary School to be a major factor in the overall success as a top ten university in terms of awarded federal funding. The Veterinary School is also a major factor in Madison’s emergence as a hub of commercial biotechnology.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison and the surrounding area have many enriching opportunities. Madison was named the most bike friendly city; the Dane County Farmer’s Market is one of the largest in the nation; Madison has the most restaurants per capita of any U.S. city; Madison consistently ranks as a top community to live, work, and play; and Madison is home to nationally recognized academics and athletics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
