The Department of Biomedical Sciences, an integral component of the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine (CCVM), provides instruction to students in a professional veterinary medical program leading to a DVM degree, in MS and PhD degree programs, and provides diagnostic services through the Oregon Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (OVDL). Statewide diagnostic services benefit practicing veterinarians, wildlife officials, livestock and poultry industries, and pet owners. Research is of economic and public health significance, aimed at improving human and animal health and welfare, and of particular importance to the State of Oregon and the nation.
A primary responsibility of this clinical-track Instructor position is active participation in the CCVM professional curriculum, with particular emphasis on teaching final year DVM students in the diagnostic services rotation (VMB795). The instructor will also be part of a team responsible for instructing and mentoring junior anatomic pathology residents.
Responsibilities will be complemented by the provision of anatomic pathology (necropsy, biopsy) services to the OVDL. Case work will be used in the instruction of veterinary students. OVDL service includes gross necropsy, histopathology, case coordination with other OVDL labs (i.e., molecular, bacteriology, virology), and consultation with referring veterinarians and clients. The candidate will work with five board-certified anatomic pathologists, several anatomic residents, as well as three board-certified clinical pathologists and a clinical pathology resident. Cases are varied and include domestic animals (pets), food producing animals, horses, wildlife, camelids, marine life and animals of public health significance. Cases are submitted from the OSU veterinary teaching hospital, externally from owners, humane society, wildlife, aquatic, state, and public health officials/veterinarians. Participation in the weekend and evening on-call duty roster is also required. The incumbent will also be required to engage in the OVDL quality program and participate in a team that helps maintain accreditation with the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD).
This position will have a small proportion (0.05 FTE) of time dedicated to scholarly activity. Examples of scholarly activity might include, but are not limited to: developing peer reviewed publications, presentations at local or national meetings, proceedings, developing diagnostic tests, or teaching innovations.
Typically requires Master’s degree in discipline appropriate to the field of teaching/instructional tasks.
DVM or equivalent.
Completion of a minimum of 36 calendar months of pathology training (necropsy and biopsy) in a standard veterinary anatomic pathology residency program.

Ability to communicate in a professional, respectful and courteous manner with all employees, clients, and others.
Ability to contribute to a successful work group and foster a team-oriented culture through positive interactions, active listening, meaningful collaborations, and the constructive exchange of ideas.
