The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine (PVM) invites applications from veterinarians with an interest in distance learning/education for a full-time, 12-month position as a Lecturer in the Department of Veterinary Administration beginning in October 2020. Applicants must have a DVM or equivalent degree, a veterinary license or eligible to become licensed in Indiana, excellent written and oral communication skills, and a strong interest in teaching veterinary nursing students. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in online teaching as well as working with both large and small animal species.
The responsibilities of this position primarily involve teaching, course creation, and facilitating course content updates in the Veterinary Nursing Program. This individual may be assigned as instructor-of-record and/or course instructor as appropriate. The successful candidate will spend approximately 75% of their time working in our online Veterinary Distance Learning Program (VNDL) teaching small and/or large animal focused courses as well as aiding in the continual updating of all VNDL courses insuring that the course material reflects current scientific knowledge and is congruent with course goals. The other 25% of the position includes on-campus instruction of problem-based integrations courses, participating in PVM engagement activities that benefit both the DVM and VN, and various administrative responsibilities as assigned by the Veterinary Nursing Program Director.
The Purdue Veterinary Nursing Program is consistently ranked amongst the best in the nation and affords the successful candidate a rare opportunity to engage and teach in a high quality academic setting. Perhaps the most significant benefit of this position is they will get to collaborate and join a team composed of some of the most talented, passionate, and experienced faculty and staff members in the field of veterinary nursing.
