The University of Tennessee invites applications for a full-time faculty appointment as Veterinary Anatomic Pathologist in the Department of Biomedical and Diagnostic Sciences at the College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville. 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. The successful candidate will join a team of 7 anatomic pathologists in sharing diagnostic services, teaching, resident training and scholarship for our College’s academic programs and referral hospital. The anatomic pathology service has a robust and diverse case load derived from our veterinary medical center, referring veterinary clinics, a large felid sanctuary, the Knoxville Zoo, local wildlife, etc., providing abundant opportunities for teaching, discovery and scholarship in a highly collegial and collaborative environment.
We are seeking candidates who can make meaningful contributions to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University. Qualified applicants must have: (1) a DVM (or equivalent degree); (2) board certification in anatomic pathology from the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP), the European College of Veterinary Pathologists, or eligibility to complete the ACVP board certification examination in 2019; (3) excellent verbal and written communication skills; and (4) the ability to work well with others in a collegial, team atmosphere. Teaching experience is desirable, but not required.
