Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine is a fulfilling place to work with ample opportunity for a robust and rewarding career for a clinical and research oriented faculty member.  The teaching hospital provides a diverse and challenging small and large animal caseload for training future veterinarians and radiologists, and is well-equipped and supported for clinical research.  Extensive opportunities for independent and collaborative research exist at the Veterinary College and throughout the University, including Weill Medical College and technology campuses in New York City.  Candidates with an equine focus can find unique opportunities for developing their clinical and research interests at our new satellite equine referral hospital on the backstretch of the Belmont racetrack equipped with state-of-the-art imaging equipment. Candidates with a small-animal focus can develop innovative imaging consultation arrangements and collaborative research opportunities with the college-owned and affiliated small animal specialty practice in metropolitan NYC.  Easy campus-to-campus bus transportation allows one to explore or work in NYC while enjoying the “Ithaca is Gorges” lifestyle.  The Finger Lakes region has much regional flavor, and is lovely year round with many unique outdoor activities.  Cayuga Lake touches the town with all the expected recreational options.  Our many waterfalls, gorges and parks offer unique and challenging hiking, mountain biking, ice climbing, cross-country skiing, and water sport adventures. 

The Department of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for one position in the Section of Diagnostic Imaging. This expansion of the Section will result in a total of five radiologists including two tenure-track and 2.5 clinical-track faculty that share the goal of supporting pre-clinical and clinical research programs in imaging while providing excellent clinical/diagnostic services in the Hospital and strong teaching and outreach programs.

The successful candidate would join the current faculty of four radiologists supported by seven experienced, licensed technicians (LVT and RT), four imaging residents, and a full-time biomedical engineer working in a comprehensive, state-of-the art teaching and referral hospital.  Approximately 10,000 imaging examinations are performed annually.  Diagnostic imaging equipment is up-to-date including AGFA CR, wireless Canon DR, Carestream PACS, Phillips RF, a Ziehm C-Arm, a Toshiba Vantage Atlas® 1.5 T MR, a 16 slice Toshiba Aquilion-LB® CT equipped for small and large animal examinations, a new MIE nuclear medicine suite, and two ultrasound units (a new Philips Epiq and Philips iU22) with 5 transducers each.

Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Board certification in Veterinary Radiology (ACVR or ECVDI) is preferred, but candidates who have recently completed an approved residency in Veterinary Radiology will be considered.  Salary, rank and title will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.
