Faculty Position in Cardiology

The Department of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure track Cardiology faculty position in the Section of Cardiology. This will result in a total of two tenure-track cardiologists, one part-time cardiologist and a visiting cardiologist in support of the electrophysiology program with the goals of supporting robust pre-clinical and clinical research programs, providing excellent cardiology services in the Hospital, and maintaining a strong teaching and outreach program. The successful candidate would join a section supported by 2 experienced, licensed technicians (LVT), and two cardiology residents in a comprehensive, state-of-the art teaching and referral hospital. The Cornell University Hospital for Animals is equipped with extensive therapeutic and diagnostic equipment including one Philips Epic 7 echocardiographic imaging system with transthoracic three-dimensional transducers and two-dimensional pediatric transesophageal probe, one Eickemeyer electronic electrocardiograph, in-house Forest Medical Holter system, Ziehm C-Arm fluoroscope, Toshiba Aquilion Large-Bore 16-slice Computed Tomography unit, Medtronic LifePak defibrillator, Workmate Claris St. Jude system equipped with EP-4 Cardiac stimulator and Ampere radiofrequency generator for electrophysiology and hemodynamic signal acquisition, pacing and radiofrequency ablation, and a 3-tesla GE discovery MR750 whole body MRI scanner with in-vivo cardiovascular imaging capabilities is available on campus.

Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Board certification in veterinary cardiology (ACVIM or ECVIM) is preferred but candidates currently enrolled in cardiology residency training programs are welcome to apply. Clinical and/or basic science research experience is desirable.

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 cardiology. Clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (Companion Animal Hospital and Equine and Farm Animal Hospital), lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and independent and collaborative research expectations are negotiable. 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.
