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.
