The Department of Veterinary Large Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences, Texas A&M University, invites applications for a full-time tenure track or clinical track (nontenure) faculty position in Equine Theriogenology at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor.
Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree and meet requirements for licensure in the State of
Texas. Board certification or eligibility for certification by the American College of Theriogenologists (ACT)
or the European College of Animal Reproduction (ECAR) is required. An advanced degree (MS/PhD) is
preferred. The appointment will begin as soon as possible following identification of the successful
candidate.

The Equine Theriogenology Service is located in a state-of-the-art veterinary teaching hospital that
includes well-staffed and equipped laboratories and teaching facilities devoted to equine reproductive
research and clinical activities. These activities are conducted in connected laboratories, including an
oocyte/embryo laboratory and a semen laboratory that are immediately adjacent to the clinical facility.
These cooperative laboratories provide clinical, research and teaching opportunities for faculty, students
(undergraduate, graduate and veterinary), interns/residents and post-doctoral/visiting scientists and
practicing veterinarians. The equine theriogenology program in the College of Veterinary Medicine and
Biomedical Sciences has achieved international prominence in the discipline and the successful candidate
is expected to interact with existing faculty and staff to further strengthen this stature.
Collaborative research, teaching, and outreach activities with Department of Animal Science faculty is
encouraged. The campus-wide Interdisciplinary Faculties of Reproductive Biology and Genetics include
faculty members from all five departments of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences,
as well as numerous other campus departments and TAMU System components. These bodies, through
active forums, provide faculty and trainees with broad exposure to a range of collaborative opportunities.
The Service provides equine reproductive management of approximately 120 mares and 8 stallions for
the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The departments of Large Animal Clinical Sciences and Animal
Science also support mare herds and stallions for research and teaching purposes.

The successful candidate will be expected to independently and collaboratively contribute to the teaching,
research, outreach/service and patient-care missions of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences. The Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at Texas A&M University has three full-time
ACT Diplomates with an equine focus and two ACT Diplomates with a food animal focus. Two equine
theriogenology residents share clinical, research and teaching responsibilities. The Service provides full
service mare and stallion fertility assessment/management as well as advanced assisted reproductive
technologies (including in-house transvaginal oocyte aspiration and intracytoplasmic sperm injection
procedures) and mail-in assessment of endometrial biopsies and semen.

The Service focuses on both stallion and mare reproduction through research pursuits. Stallions and
mares are used as models to study gamete biology with a focus on translational techniques that benefit
the horse industry. In addition to teaching and clinical activities, our equine theriogenology faculty
members present research findings at national and international venues.
The successful candidate will provide clinical teaching to fourth-year veterinary students and will utilize
innovative teaching techniques as a means of educating professional students in the three preclinical
years of the updated DVM curriculum.

Contribution to the education of equine theriogenology residents and graduate students is a high priority.
The successful candidate is expected to provide mentorship towards all aspects of resident training as
preparation for ACT certification.

Depending on appointment to the tenure track or clinical track position, the successful candidate will be
appropriately apportioned to teaching, scholarship, academic citizenship, and patient care. Rank and
salary will be commensurate with the applicant's qualifications and experience.
