Position Overview

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces an outstanding opportunity for a full-time clinical track or tenure track faculty position in Dermatology and Otology. The appointee will join the Dermatology and Otology Service within the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, which is currently comprised of two faculty members, one resident, two certified veterinary technicians and a client care liaison.

Tenure-track faculty typically have a 50% commitment to clinical service and clinical teaching with the remainder devoted to didactic and laboratory teaching, and to developing research/scholarship, including collaboration with other scientists, advising of graduate student and resident research, and publications in peer-reviewed journals. Faculty are also expected to be involved in professional and community outreach, continuing education, committee service, and curriculum development.

The Dermatology and Otology Service is located in a brand-new suite within the comprehensive Veterinary Medical Center and referral center with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, including video-otoscopy, video-dermoscopy, digital radiography, computed tomography, 3 Tesla MRI as well as endoscopy, cystoscopy, laser lithotripsy, laparoscopy, ultrasonography, after hours urgent care, and small and large animal emergency and critical care.
