Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology
The Department of Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Illinois (http://vetmed.illinois.edu/path/), invites application for a tenured or tenure-track faculty positon in Anatomic Pathology at the rank of assistant or associate professor with major emphasis in research. The position is a full-time, 9-month appointment. The anticipated starting date is August 2017. Base salary is competitive, commensurate with experience and qualifications, and can be supplemented with summer salary from research grants. A competitive start-up package, and the return of a portion of earned ICR that may be applied to discretionary spending for research and other scholarly activities, will be provided.
We seek an outstanding individual whose research focuses on the ecology of infectious diseases or the biology of host-pathogen interaction, but will consider all outstanding investigators with strong research interests, regardless of their area of expertise in comparative biomedical science. The successful candidate is expected to maintain a well-funded research program that is actively involved in doctoral student training. Contributions to team-teaching of general pathology in the veterinary professional curriculum, and participation in the training of veterinary pathology residents will also be expected. Minimum qualifications are DVM/VMD (or equivalent), board certification or eligibility by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) or European College of Veterinary Pathologists (ECVP), and a Ph.D. or evidence of research accomplishment.
The Department encompasses a unique blend of expertise in comparative pathology and clinical pathology, epidemiology, immunology, microbial pathogenesis, parasitology, and virology. Through its multidisciplinary nature, the Department is positioned to make significant contributions to solving complex disease problems in the biomedical sciences. Our particular strength is our diverse complement of disciplines working toward an integrated approach that enables vital discoveries in all aspects of disease emergence, mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions, and novel approaches to disease prevention. Areas of research interest in the College and University include infectious disease, cancer biology, reproductive biology, toxicology, biomedical engineering, zoological medicine and pathology, stem cell biology, and ecosystem, environmental and population health.
The Department of Pathobiology at the College of Veterinary Medicine features modern research and animal care facilities.
