Date Posted: 
January 21, 2016 - April 20, 2016

The Department of Surgical Sciences of the School of Veterinary Medicine at University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for a position in Diagnostic Imaging (tenure-track or clinical-track).  Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree.  An advanced degree (PhD) is desirable for the tenure-track option. Board certification in Veterinary Radiology (ACVR or ECVDI) is desirable, however, candidates who have recently completed an approved residency and are board eligible in Veterinary Radiology are encouraged to apply.

The Diagnostic Imaging faculty are congenial, team oriented and are excited about the prospects of furthering the development of imaging at UW-Madison in collaboration with the talents and ideas of new faculty members.  UW Veterinary Care/School of Veterinary Medicine is a wonderful 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 compassionate care and new discoveries.  UW Veterinary Care supports 20 specialty sections, including 24/7 emergency service. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with all sections in the Hospital.

The successful candidate will join a clinical radiology service that currently includes 1 tenure track faculty (R, RO), 3 clinical track radiology faculty, 1 clinical instructor (RO), two adjunct radiology faculty, 1 emeritus radiology faculty, and an additional tenure faculty member (RO).  Nine technologists (5 RT (R), 1 RDMS, 1 RT (MR), 2.5 CVT) support the two sections of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Oncology.  Five Diagnostic Imaging trainees (residents) and 2 radiation oncology residents are currently part of the program.

Imaging equipment includes 2 DR rooms (Eklin Canon 50G plate), 1 recently renovated RF suite with digital fluoroscopy, 1000mAs overhead tube and Fuji DR plate, 1 mobile OME C-arm with 15 & 30 fps imaging, GE 8-slice helical CT scanner, 1.5 T GE MR, 2-new GE LOGIQ E9 with XDclear ultrasound including contrast harmonics, GPS tracking, MR/CT fusion, and 4D, new GE LOGIQe Expert ultrasound, 1 new planar gamma camera, and Philips iSite PACS system with RIS and electronic reporting.  Nine dictating stations with three monitors each and one OsiriX station are available for radiologist and resident use. Future upgrades include an Imaging Center with large animal capable 3T MRI and 64-slice CT.

Outstanding collaborative research opportunities exist within the School of Veterinary Medicine and throughout the University, including the Wisconsin Institutes of Medical Research (WIMR) and the Medical Physics Department, which are within walking distance of the Veterinary School. WIMR has state of the art imaging equipment, which currently benefit UW Veterinary faculty.

Examples of clinical modalities include:

  • 64 slice high definition CT scanner
  • 1.5T MRI scanner
  • 3T MRI scanner
  • Multiple state-of-the-art ultrasound machines
  • Combined PET/CT scanner
  • Cyclotron

Pre-clinical imaging modalities include:

  • Four-flat panel CT scanner
  • Two x-ray angiography units
  • 64 channel SQUID system for biomagnetism
  • MicroCT scanner
  • Combined microPET/microCT scanner
  • 4.7T small-bore MRI scanner

The University of Wisconsin –Madison considers its Veterinary School to be a major factor in its 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.  UW-Madison is home of the premiere Medical Physics department in the world, with multiple faculty and leading facilities in all relevant areas of diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology.  UW-Madison has successfully leveraged its proximity to the world headquarters of General Electric Healthcare’s diagnostic imaging business to acquire $34 million in leading edge equipment over the next ten years.  The imaging scientists are known and rewarded for their innovative intellectual property that has been licensed around the world and successfully commercialized, including two of the top five revenue-generating patents in university history.

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.  Please see the following link for more information: http://greatermadisonchamber.com/about-madison/visitor-info/

Distribution of effort in the Section and Department will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate’s expertise and academic goals in diagnostic imaging. Clinical teaching and service in UW Veterinary Care, lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and independent and collaborative research are negotiable (tenure track vs. clinical track).  Salary, rank and title will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.
