Position Description:

The Department of Clinical Studies at the University of Guelph invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.

Applicants must have a DVM (or equivalent) and be licensed or eligible for licensure to practice in the Province of Ontario. Preference will be given to Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS). Applications may also be considered from candidates who have completed an ACVS registered residency training. A graduate degree and experience in research is considered an asset but is not required.

The ideal candidate should have strong skills in the clinical practice of small animal surgery and outstanding teaching and communication skills. A mix of Orthopedic and Soft tissue/Oncology surgery is expected with some emphasis on orthopedic. Basic neurosurgery skills are required.

The successful candidate will work with 5 other board-certified surgeons and board-certified specialists in medicine, anesthesiology, critical care, diagnostic imaging, oncology, ophthalmology, neurology, nutrition, cardiology and avian/exotic medicine to provide didactic and clinical instruction in small animal surgery and related disciplines to veterinary students, interns, residents and graduate students. Most of the effort will be dedicated to clinical teaching and small animal surgery activities, which includes the management of small animal patients and consultation in the OVC-HSC. On call duties will be shared with other faculty members in the surgery section which necessitates some neurosurgery. The remaining time is to be spent on scholarly and service activities.

The OVC Health Sciences Centre (OVC HSC) offers state of the art diagnostic equipment including but not limited to a 1.5 Tesla high field General Electric MRI, CT, digital radiology, PACS system, state of the art ultrasonography, scintigraphy, arthroscopy, total hip replacement, videoendoscopy, and a 24/7 fully staffed intensive care. The faculty and staff of the Department of Clinical Studies and the OVC HSC are committed to delivering the very best quality of patient care.
