Job Location Raleigh, NC Department College of Veterinary Medicine About the Department

NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, one of the top-ranked schools in the nation is located in Raleigh, North Carolina and is consistently ranked as one of the top places to live in America. The college's mission centers on the advancement of the veterinary profession and animal and human health through ongoing discovery and biomedical innovation; providing animals and their owners with extraordinary, compassionate medical care; and preparing future veterinarians and biomedical research scientists.

Located on 180 acres near downtown Raleigh, the College of Veterinary Medicine encompasses 20 buildings on the main Centennial Biomedical Campus. The college's mission is carried out in three departments: Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences and Population Health & Pathobiology. In addition to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, the college is the home of the NC State Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate training program, an umbrella program that provides interdisciplinary training for doctoral students across the entire NC State campus.

With 166 faculty members, the College provides instruction and guidance to over 400 DVM students, 77 graduate students and 100+ house officers. More than 35,000 patients are diagnosed and treated annually by clinicians in the NC State Veterinary Hospital, a major referral center for veterinarians throughout the Southeast. The College's research enterprise is housed in three modern buildings on the CVM campus including the new Biomedical Partnership Center (BPC), a 40,000-square foot building that opened in 2017. The BPC houses CVM faculty in research laboratories shared with faculty from the College of Engineering, including the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at NC State and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, as well as industry partners working in related biomedical research fields.

Since its inception, the College remains a leader in One Health, with a strong role in translational and comparative research. The College has excellent collaborative relationships with the nearby Duke University and University of North Carolina Schools of Medicine and has maintained 30 years of shared federal funding for research emphasis areas including gastrointestinal and ocular biology and disease, immunology, infectious disease, cancer and stem cell biology. Through these efforts the College prepares the next generation of biomedical researchers and veterinarians, conducts bench and clinical research to solve human and animal health problems, addresses critical ecosystem and public health issues and promotes a clearer understanding and appreciation of the ramifications related to the growing human-animal bond that is at the center of these concerns.

The college is committed to practicing inclusivity, making community a priority and promoting innovation. We embrace effective leadership and we champion personal and professional growth.

Essential Job Duties
