Faculty Positions in Diagnostic Imaging


The Department of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for two positions in the Section of Diagnostic Imaging. This expansion of the Section will result in a total of two tenure-track and three clinical-track faculty with the goals of supporting robust pre-clinical and clinical research programs, providing excellent clinical/diagnostic services in the Hospital, and maintaining a strong teaching and outreach program. The successful candidates would join a current faculty of three board-certified radiologists supported by seven experienced, licensed technicians (LVT and RT), four imaging residents and a full-time biomedical engineer working in a comprehensive, state-of-the art teaching and referral hospital. Approximately 10,000 imaging examinations are performed annually.

Diagnostic imaging equipment includes two multi-plate AGFA CR readers, two wireless Canon DR detectors, a Phillips RF "special procedures" room, a flat-panel Ziehm C-arm for intra-operative imaging, a Toshiba Vantage Atlas(r) 1.5 T MR and a 16 slice Toshiba Aquilion-LB(r) CT both equipped for small and large animal examinations, two planar gamma cameras linked to a NuQuest computer, isolation facilities for radioiodine therapy, and two ultrasound units (Phillips iU22 and ATL 5000) with 5 transducers each. The Imaging equipment is integrated via DICOM modality work-list through the medical record system (UVIS) and images are archived and viewed with Carestream PACS, including both diagnostic and browser-independent web software (PC, Mac, iPad). Integrated 3-D software is included. Three diagnostic workstations are equipped with dual, 3 MP monitors.

Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. An advanced degree (PhD) is desirable for the tenure-track position. Board certification in Veterinary Radiology (ACVR or ECVDI) is preferred, but candidates who have recently completed an approved residency and are board eligible in Veterinary Radiology will be considered.

Distribution of effort in the Section and Department will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate's expertise and academic goals in diagnostic imaging. Clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals, lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and independent and collaborative research are negotiable (tenure track vs. clinical track). Extensive opportunities for collaborative research exist at the College and University, including Weill Medical College and technology campuses in New York City.

Clinical duties require flexible working hours that may include daytime, evening, and weekend responsibilities. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with all of the sections in the Hospital.

Salary, rank and title will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will create a climate that attracts people from all races, nationalities and genders. We strongly encourage underrepresented minorities to apply. The University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples and has a Dual Career program to assist with dual career searches.
