Posted:
Company: University of Wisconsin-Madison
Location: Madison, WI
Job Title: Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Anatomic Pathology - Clinical Track

Summary:
The Department of Pathobiological Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary Medicine, is seeking candidates for a clinical-, teaching-, or tenure-track anatomic pathology faculty position. Across all positions, there is a 60% expected effort for clinical diagnostic biopsy and necropsy service/clinical teaching, with variable percentage distributions for teaching pre-clinical veterinary students (e.g. 2nd-year pathology courses), collaborative research, and academic service responsibilities.

The clinical- and teaching-track positions are open for applicants at all levels (assistant, associate, and full professors), but due to the significant clinical service component (60% effort), the tenure track-position accepts applicants for the associate and full professor levels only.

Requirements:
The minimum requirements for the selected candidate include a DVM or equivalent, ACVP or ECVP board certification, and licensure or eligibility for licensure in Wisconsin. Two years of post-residency experience in diagnostic anatomic pathology, research experience and/or a PhD, as well as a demonstrated strong interest and experience in training pathology residents are preferred but not required.

Responsibilities:
The successful candidate will join 4 other board-certified anatomic pathology faculty on the Anatomic Pathology Service in the Pathology Section. The service primarily provides biopsy and necropsy services to the UW Veterinary Care hospital, and is tasked with training 4 anatomic pathology residents, veterinary students on clinical year necropsy rotations, and pre-clinical veterinary students in systemic pathology courses. While the anatomic pathology service primarily provides biopsy and necropsy services for patients of the UWVC hospital, we also receive a significant number of cases from the Milwaukee County Zoo, smaller numbers of cases from the International Crane Foundation, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and external referral clinics and interact and consult with members of The Comparative Ocular Pathology Laboratory of Wisconsin (COPLOW).

The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to clinical teaching and mentorship excellence, with special regard for training anatomic pathology residents. The individual will be expected to participate, and demonstrate leadership and innovation, in the didactic components of resident training. In addition to resident mentorship, the selected individual will significantly contribute to the professional veterinary student instructional program, with the option to contribute to other courses in the veterinary medical, undergraduate, or graduate student curricula. Experience working with, mentoring, or teaching diverse groups is preferred; and the candidate should have the ability to contribute to fostering and furthering diversity of the campus, curriculum, and discipline.

The successful candidate will also 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. The Department of Pathobiological Sciences is also home to numerous basic, applied, and clinical research programs in a wide array of disciplines, including immunology, parasitology, bacteriology, virology, epidemiology, and public health.  Outstanding collaborative research opportunities exist within the Department, other departments in 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.

The University of Wisconsin -Madison fulfills its public mission by creating and welcoming an inclusive community for people from every background â?" people who as students, faculty, and staff serve Wisconsin and the world. We recognize diversity as a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. Our campus culture is one of collaboration and collegiality where the contributions of each person are valued and respected and where excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity are inextricably linked goals, thereby providing an enriching environment for an academic career. The University of Wisconsin-Madison considers its School of Veterinary Medicine to be a major factor in the overall success as a top ten university in terms of awarded federal funding. The School of Veterinary Medicine is also a major factor in Madison’s emergence as a hub of commercial biotechnology.
