Position Summary

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) is seeking an experienced veterinarian to join the Division of Comparative Medicine (DCM) as an Assistant-, Associate- or Professor. Duties will include laboratory animal clinical care, husbandry and veterinary technical staff supervision, oversight of regulatory compliance, consultation and training for animal users, and limited teaching of graduate and professional students as a faculty member of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the School of Medicine. Participation in resident training in Laboratory Animal Medicine is expected, and collaborative research with residents and investigators at UNC is encouraged. It is expected that this position will become the primary clinical veterinarian and participate in research collaborations for a large colony of canine and swine models of hemostasis and thrombotic disorders. Therefore, experience in providing guidance and assistance to principal investigators and their staff regarding veterinary- and preclinical trials in canine and swine in the areas of colony maintenance, anesthesia, surgery, model development, and care of surgical models is a plus.

The animal care and use program at UNC is centrally managed by the DCM and reports directly to the Vice Chancellor for Research. More than 150,000 animals are provided care to support a diverse research portfolio by faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Public Health and Pharmacy, and College of Arts and Sciences. Representative species include mice, rats, other rodents, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, swine, nonhuman primates, aquatics, reptiles, and amphibians. UNC-Chapel Hill is ranked sixth among leading private and public research universities for the level of federal funding devoted to research and development ($1.15 billion). DCM employs more than 190 individuals, including 9 ACLAM- or ACVP-boarded faculty veterinarians, 3 residents in Laboratory Animal Medicine, 3 residents in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology and 10 veterinary technicians. This position will report to the Director of DCM.

Educational Requirements

The qualified candidate will be a US-licensed veterinarian with 3 or more years of postdoctoral experience in Comparative Medicine or related clinical veterinary field, be certified by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine and/or another clinically focused AVMA-recognized Boarded Specialty Organization (e.g., ACVS, ACVIM, ACVECC), and have strong clinical and surgical skills in USDA-covered species. Applications from exceptional candidates eligible to sit but have not yet passed their specialty certification exam may be considered.

Qualifications and Experience

The candidate should have significant clinical experience at an academic or other research institution with a diverse range of species and a working knowledge of regulatory requirements for the care of veterinary patients and use of animal models of human disease. Experience in interventional radiology and/or minimally invasive surgery is a plus. Minimum qualifications include an AVMA-recognized board certification or eligibility, a veterinary license in at least one state in the U.S., and the ability to obtain a practitioner’s DEA registration and become USDA level II accredited and licensed in North Carolina within 6-9 months of employment. For consideration, candidates must have excellent problem-solving, interpersonal, written and oral communication skills, a collegial attitude, and a demonstrated ability to successfully work with other faculty, staff, and trainees.
