Job Description:

The Department of Comparative, Diagnostic, and Population Medicine at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine invites energetic and team-oriented clinical pathologists to join our growing clinical pathology service! We are accepting applications for a full-time, non-tenure accruing faculty position in Veterinary Clinical Pathology.

The position’s major efforts are diagnostic service in support of the veterinary teaching hospital and instruction to both veterinary students and clinical pathology residents. The faculty hire will also be involved in scholarly activity; opportunities exist to explore or develop self-directed special interests in pathology and/or participate in collaborations with other faculty at the CVM and/or Health Science Center. College service is also expected and can be fulfilled by professional specialty, college, departmental and university appointments.

The prospective candidate must have experience in diagnostic cytopathology, hematology, clinical chemistry, and urinalysis, and the ability to independently sign out cases, in support of the clinical pathology service. The selected applicant will also provide service support for on-campus clinical programs at the veterinary teaching hospital, private practitioners, and research customers. The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in training and mentoring three clinical pathology residents, supporting didactic curriculum instruction, and advising veterinary students and house officers. Prior instructional experience is desirable, though not required.

The UF clinical pathology service is supported by a high quality, high volume, and diverse caseload with submissions from within the teaching hospital and outside practices, in particular very busy oncology and zoological/wildlife medicine services. The clinical pathology laboratory is well-equipped and includes dedicated sections for cytopathology (Wescor® automated slide stainer with methanolic Wright-Giemsa), hematology (Siemens ADVIA® 2120i System and IDEXX ProCyte Dx®), clinical chemistry (Beckman Coulter AU480®), coagulation (STAGO STA Compact Max®), endocrinology (Siemens Immulite® 1000), urinalysis, and other specialty analyses. The Clinical Pathology Section maintains strong and active interactions with other hospital services.

The University of Florida Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories are comprised of dedicated individuals who strive for excellence in diagnostics to improve animal and human health. The current UFVDL pathology team includes eight anatomic and three clinical pathologists and is pursuing American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD) accreditation.

The successful candidate should be able to work with students, faculty, and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. The University of Florida student body encompasses nearly 58,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students, including over 19,000 minority and 5,000 international students. The university currently ranks 5th among public universities and the College of Veterinary Medicine 9th among 32 U.S. colleges or schools of veterinary medicine by U.S. News & World Report. Gainesville is a north-central Florida city with a climate that permits year-round outdoor activities in addition to numerous cultural, shopping, and culinary opportunities and sporting events. The Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean beaches, as well as the cities of Tampa, Orlando, and Jacksonville, are all a two-hour drive or less. A competitive salary and benefits package are available. Rank and salary will be commensurate with the successful candidate’s professional qualifications and experience.
