Located in Ithaca, N.Y., Cornell University is a bold, innovative, inclusive and dynamic teaching and research university where staff, faculty, and students alike are challenged to make an enduring contribution to the betterment of humanity. Cornell University is one of the largest and most diverse institutions in the Ivy League. We are a community of 22,000 students and more than 10,000 faculty and staff members representing more than 80 countries and hundreds of disciplines—global cultures, backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and ideas. The College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University is recognized internationally as a leader in public health, biomedical research, animal medicine, and veterinary medical education. Ranked consistently as one of the best veterinary colleges in the nation, the College's strength is due to its strategic breadth of focus areas and its depth of expertise in each of those areas; the achievements of its faculty, staff, alumni, and students; and its commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

The Department of Clinical Sciences with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a specialty track faculty position in the Section of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation in the Companion Animal Hospital.  Candidates must have a degree in Veterinary Medicine. Board certification in the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation is required.

The successful candidate will join one board-certified faculty member training three residents working in a comprehensive teaching and referral hospital with advanced facilities and equipment including: state of the art diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound, underwater treadmill, piezoelectric extracorporeal shockwave, procedural area, large new rehabilitation area, regenerative medicine laboratory, kinetic gait laboratory with dual force plate and pressure sensitive walkway, and acupuncture service.  Responsibilities will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate’s areas of expertise within the specialty of sports medicine and rehabilitation.  Effort will be distributed among clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals, didactic and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, teaching in the preclinical curriculum, and primarily collaborative research.  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 foundational skills in evidence based medical diagnostics and treatment modalities (i.e., underwater treadmill, extracorporeal shockwave, TENS, NEMS, therapeutic laser, regenerative medicine, acupuncture) frequently used in sports medicine or rehabilitation.  The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with surgical and medical specialists regarding case management.

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will create a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities, and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.  The University seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual-career searches.
