The Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department (VBSD) in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES) at South Dakota State University (SDSU) invites applications to apply for several 9-month full time (or part-time, not less than 49%), non-tenure-track positions in the new Professional (DVM) Program in Veterinary Medicine (PPVM). Candidates will be assigned the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor depending on qualifications. Associate or Full Professor status may be considered if the candidate has significant proven capabilities in teaching, diagnostics, or research.
Successful candidates are expected to teach 80-100 percent within the new PPVM. This program will encompass the first two years of a veterinary curriculum whereby each year a cohort of 20 students will begin the professional curriculum and complete the first two years of Veterinary School at SDSU, and then finish their final two years of the DVM degree requirements at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.
Teaching ability is expected in at least two to three areas of basic sciences and/or early veterinary clinical sciences. The program is seeking faculty with the ability to teach in the following areas: food animal medicine and surgery, companion animal medicine and surgery, basic clinical skills, clinical and/or anatomic pathology, veterinary anatomy and microscopic anatomy (histology), systemic (integrated) physiology, endocrinology and reproduction, genetics and genomics, biochemistry (cell and molecular biology), veterinary imaging, veterinary dermatology, veterinary pharmacology and toxicology or closely related disciplines.
The primary responsibility for each of these positions is to teach in the Professional DVM degree program in at least two to three areas of expertise and coordinate the course content to achieve the same learning objectives and outcomes as the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine’s first two years’ curriculum.
Sponsorship is not available for this position; must be eligible to work in the United States.
