Job Summary:

The Department of Medical Sciences of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for a tenure-track, full-time, 12-month renewable position within the Large Animal Internal Medicine Section of the Morrie Waud Large Animal Hospital. The successful candidate will join four other ACVIM boarded large animal internists providing clinical service within the Large Animal Hospital on the UW-Madison campus. The Morrie Waud Large Animal Teaching Hospital is a collegial, collaborative environment that offers specialty care with board certified experts in allied services including Large Animal Surgery, Anesthesia and Pain Management, Cardiology, and Diagnostic Imaging. The current case-load is comprised of approximately 70 % horses, 30 % food animal (principally dairy cattle) and a small number of camelids and other farm animal species. Approximately 650 large animal medicine patients are evaluated annually with a growing caseload in all species over the last several years. A predominance of cases are in-patients, with a significant number of critical care patients.

Tenure track faculty are typically assigned to 10-12 weeks of clinic duty annually. During these weeks, the successful applicant will be responsible for overseeing and administering clinical care to bovine, equine, small ruminant and camelid patients within the Large Animal Hospital at UW-Veterinary Care; providing daytime and emergency care, clinical instruction of veterinary students and contributing to residency training within a ACVIM LAIM training program that includes 4 other ACVIM-LA Diplomates.

It is an expectation that the faculty member will develop a productive, independent research program, which will be supported by acquisition of extramural funding and will incorporate training opportunities for interns, residents, veterinary students, and/or graduate students. Participation in classroom lecture and laboratory instruction will be fairly and equitably distributed across the large animal internal medicine section to enable the successful candidate to focus on research.

The School of Veterinary Medicine is part of a leading public research institution on the UW-Madison campus and extensive collaborative opportunities, mentoring and support exist for faculty to develop a basic science and/or applied clinical research program.


For tenure track faculty members, the approximate distribution of effort is expected to be 50% research, 25% clinical service/teaching, 15 % non-clinical teaching and 10% academic service. The position is offered at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor rank, depending on qualifications and is available once a suitable candidate is identified with a projected start date of July 1st 2023.
