Salary and academic rank (associate or full professor) will be commensurate with training and experience. The overall goal of this position is to benefit the food animal industry and its stakeholders as part of a larger program to promote both the industry and rural veterinary medicine. The individual selected for this position will be a critical team member at the Veterinary Education, Research and Outreach (VERO) Center, an exciting new collaborative initiative in the heart of one of the most productive animal agricultural regions in the world. The Texas A&M System has invested nearly $90 million in new facilities in Canyon, Texas to promote the future of agriculture and animal health in the region. The new state‐of‐the art VERO Center is one part of this initiative, and is co‐located with West Texas A&M University’s new Agricultural Sciences

Applicants must have a Ph.D. related to veterinary epidemiology and expertise pertinent to North American livestock production systems. Members of the VERO team are expected to support each other to promote the Center Mission, and must have strong positive interpersonal skills along with a demonstrated record of promoting highly collegial and collaborative team interactions. The successful candidate will have experience, knowledge and skills that include – but are not limited to – conducting epidemiological research, ability to independently secure extramural research support, consulting on important health and production‐related problems affecting animal populations, and teaching epidemiology and population health related subjects to graduate and veterinary students. Applicants with knowledge and experience in
beef feedlot or dairy production systems will be given preference, as will those with a strong track record of peer‐reviewed publications, consulting on important production medicine problems affecting animal populations, and in agribusiness and production economics. Participation in outreach and continuing education is encouraged.

VERO Center faculty have academic homes in different departments within the CVM. This position will be housed within the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology (https://vtpb.tamu.edu/). Approximately 50% of expected effort for this position will be assigned to Research/Scholarship, 35% to Teaching, and 15% to Academic and Professional Service.
