Faculty Position in Radiology/Diagnostic Imaging

The new College of Veterinary Medicine at Midwestern University (MWU-CVM) in Glendale, AZ invites application for a full-time faculty position in Radiology.  DVM or equivalent degree and American College of Veterinary Radiology certification (or eligibility) are required.  Appointment can be tenure-track or clinical-track depending on specific duties and the interests of the person hired, and may be as an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor based on individual qualifications.   Successful candidates will become highly involved with the many activities which go into the formation of a new college of veterinary medicine, most notably in developing teaching and service/diagnostic programs.   MWU-CVM recently received its Letter of Reasonable Assurance from the AVMA’s Council on Education and anticipates receiving Provisional Accreditation in 2014 and Full Accreditation in 2018.

The first of three CVM buildings with lecture rooms, conference rooms, offices, teaching and research laboratories is currently under construction.  Ground breaking for a 109,000 square foot Veterinary Teaching Hospital is scheduled to occur within 2 months.  The VTH will provide comprehensive on-campus medical and surgical training and includes spaces for digital radiography, ultrasound, and CT imaging, MRI.   On-site MRI, PET and radiation therapy areas are also in early design stages.   Input from new faculty members regarding the design and equipping of our facilities will be essential and presents an excellent opportunity to help shape your own professional activities and future.

Interviews will begin in late October 2013 with the anticipated start dates being flexible, but generally falling between early and mid 2014.  We are seeking faculty members who are excited by the prospects of helping start a new veterinary college and having active roles in shaping all of its teaching, clinical and research programs.  If this sounds like you, and if you would like to learn more about the great things anticipated for veterinary medical education at Midwestern University, please contact Dr. Robert Shull, Director of CVM Program Development, at rshull@midwestern.edu.
