Faculty Position in Diagnostic Imaging, Ohio State University, USA

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces an outstanding opportunity for a faculty position (clinical-track or tenure-track) in diagnostic imaging. The person will join an energetic, internationally recognized, diagnostic imaging program comprised of 3 existing faculty radiologists, 5 residents and 6 technologists. Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Specialty board certification (ACVR or ECVDI) is preferred, and board-eligible candidates will also be considered. An advanced degree or equivalent research experience is desirable for tenure-track candidates.

The diagnostic imaging service is located within the comprehensive Veterinary Medical Center and referral center that includes state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, Eklin DR systems; 2 ultrasound units; a 128 slice, multidetector CT (used for both large and small animals); a nuclear medicine suite;. a 3T MRI with a full suite of imaging applications (neurologic, orthopedic, cardiac, vascular) for both large and small animals; and a linear accelerator. Access to an on-campus 7T magnet, PET/CT and SPECT/CT is also available through the OSU Division of Imaging Research.

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences supports a faculty of over 70 clinical specialists, educators, and investigators along with extensive training programs for professional students, interns, residents, and graduate students. The College of Veterinary Medicine (vet.osu.edu) is ranked 5th among North American colleges of veterinary medicine by US News & World Report.
