Job Details

The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences at the School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (SVMBS) at Texas A&M University is excited to invite applicants for a non-tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in medical oncology with an anticipated start in the Summer or Fall of 2024. Our Oncology Service has 3 medical oncology faculty lines and 2 radiation oncology faculty lines. Oncology Service faculty play a critical role in student education, patient care, and scholarship.
Each applicant must have a DVM degree (or equivalent) and must be a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM)-Oncology or must have completed an ACVIM-Oncology approved residency and have met the requirements to take the board examination in oncology. Applicants must be licensed or eligible for regular or special licensing to practice veterinary medicine in the state of Texas.
The successful candidate will devote a major portion of their time (% effort negotiable) to clinical instruction and patient care in the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (65%; VMTH). The remaining time will be devoted to integrative classroom and laboratory teaching (15%), research (10%), and academic citizenship (10%). Clinical responsibilities will include primary management of cases, instruction of veterinary students and technicians, mentorship of interns and residents, and participation in occasional after-hours emergency coverage. Classroom and laboratory teaching responsibilities will include the education of professional students in our integrated curriculum and opportunities to interface with graduate students across multiple disciplines. Active supervision of house officers and in-depth participation in intern/resident training (including topic rounds, journal club, and backup support) is expected. Additionally, we expect the successful candidate to collaborate in one of the many research opportunities. Opportunities for rich research collaborations are plentiful, both within the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and beyond. Texas A&M has a strong biomedical engineering program, a world-class toxicology program, and several medical school campuses (both locally and in Houston).

Radiation therapy capabilities include TomoTherapy and Strontium-90 plesiotherapy. Surgical suites and instrumentation allow for complex orthopedic, neurologic, cardiac, thoracic, oncologic, and abdominal procedures, such as stereotactic brain biopsies, cardiac occlusive device implantation, and subcutaneous ureteral bypass device placement. The hospital maintains Mimics and Echopixel licenses for three-dimensional reconstruction, with easy access to 3D printers. The planning of a next-generation small animal hospital has been approved and construction is expected to start within the next 5 years.
The Small Animal Hospital of the VMTH has approximately 60 board-certified specialists in a wide variety of clinically relevant specialties as well as a large number of technicians in areas such as imaging, surgery, critical care, internal medicine, anesthesia, cardiology, neurology, surgery, dentistry, and others.
