Position Summary

The College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, invites applications for a clinical-track (non-tenure track) faculty position in small animal interventional radiology at the rank of assistant or associate professor. The successful candidate will join an interventional radiology and minimally invasive procedures service that includes individuals in the internal medicine, cardiology, and soft tissue surgery services. The interventional radiology service maintains a busy and diverse caseload with substantial potential for growth including laser lithotripsy, laser ablation of ectopic ureters, urethral bulking, urethral stent placement, management of subcutaneous bypass devices, tracheal stents, and coiling of intrahepatic shunts with potential to incorporate and develop other procedures. The major responsibilities for the successful candidate are to provide service and teach small animal interventional radiology, and perform minimally invasive procedures, in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, to actively participate in training of residents and interns, and to provide information on procedures in appropriate pre-clinical courses, journal clubs, and seminars.
