    Faculty Position Announcement

    Veterinary Endocrinologist

    The University of Tennessee invites applications from all qualified individuals for a full-time faculty appointment as Veterinary Endocrinologist in the Department of Biomedical and Diagnostic Sciences at the College of Veterinary Medicine. The position will be offered at the rank of assistant or associate professor, in either a tenure or clinical (non-tenure) academic track, dependent on the individual’s qualifications and goals. This position offers the successful candidate a unique opportunity to blend diagnostic service and discovery in the area of veterinary endocrinology.

    The Diagnostic Endocrinology Service (DES) (https://vetmed.tennessee.edu/vmc/dls/Endocrinology/) receives approximately 9,000 cases annually and is acclaimed for expertise in adrenal disorders of domestic animals. In addition to adrenal function testing, the lab also offers analyses for evaluation of reproductive and thyroid function. The DES meets endocrinology-testing needs of clinicians within the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center as well as veterinarians across the country and around the globe. The successful candidate will join a team of two other endocrinologists, six laboratory technicians, and one laboratory assistant.

    The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University. Qualified applicants must have: (1) a DVM (or equivalent degree) from an institution accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association or a relevant PhD; (2) post-graduate experience and/or a strong documented interest in diagnostic clinical veterinary endocrinology; (3) excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work with others in a collegial, team atmosphere. Preference will be given to those with a DVM degree and/or advanced education/knowledge in system physiology with ability to teach physiology of various organs in addition to endocrinology.

    The successful candidate will have a significant commitment to the DES including: interpretation of laboratory test results; consultation with veterinarians regarding test results, diagnostic testing and treatment options; experience and in-depth understanding of principles in immunoassays, laboratory quality control, and laboratory safety; and leadership involvement in all laboratory initiatives, including continuous quality improvement and development of new tests. Faculty member expectations will also include development of an independent research program, and there will be opportunities for some level of teaching in the DVM professional curriculum, graduate program, and continuing education symposia.

    Applicants should electronically submit their letter of intent, names and contact information for at least three professional references, and current curriculum vitae to the Chair of the search committee:
