The Department of Clinical Sciences at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for a full-time, Clinical or Tenure Track Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Theriogenology position in the Food and Fiber Animal Section.  The individual selected will participate in clinical teaching and service within the Food and Fiber Animal Section, didactic lectures in the professional curriculum, and graduate and resident training.  A clinical track candidate would be expected to have excellent potential in production medicine and advanced reproductive techniques. A tenure track candidate would have excellent potential to have an independent theriogenology-focused research program that aligns with other university resources.

Qualifications: A DVM or comparable degree along with diplomate status or board eligibility with the American College of Theriogenologists or other appropriate specialty board is required.  Eligibility for faculty veterinary licensure in the State of Alabama is also required.  The candidate selected for this position must be able to meet eligibility requirements to work in the United States at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin and continue working legally for the proposed term of employment. Excellent communication skills are required.  An advanced degree, prior theriogenology experience, and research experience are desirable.

Responsibilities:  The duties of this position will be divided between clinical responsibilities, didactic lectures and graduate and resident training.  Teaching obligations will consist primarily of clinical teaching.  Clinical responsibilities will include independent, primary care within the Food and Fiber Animal Section of the Large Animal Teaching Hospital.  The food animal caseload is predominately beef and dairy cattle, but small ruminants, llamas, alpacas and swine are also seen.  Time commitment between clinical responsibilities and research will be established dependent on the incumbent’s experience and interest.

Application Review:  Review of applications will begin November 1, 2021 and will continue until a candidate is recommended for appointment.
