Clinic for Diagnostic Imaging

Faculty position in Diagnostic Imaging

We are inviting for applications for a faculty position at the Clinic for
Diagnostic Imaging. We support our small and large animal clinics as
well as the clinic for zoo animals, exotics and wildlife. Furthermore, the
Clinic will provide the successful applicant with opportunities to
participate in resident training and clinical and didactic instruction of
veterinary students. A clinical or academic track may be discussed.

Team and facilities: We are one full professor, nine board certified
radiologists, six residents, one senior researcher and eight
technicians. We serve both the large and small animal clinics. Besides
the CIS (clinical imaging services) the DIRU (diagnostic imaging
research unit) is part of the Clinic for Diagnostic Imaging.
On-site imaging equipment includes: two small animal radiography units,
one biplanar fluoroscopy (Philips Allura), one large animal radiography
unit (Gierth), two helical CT units (Philips iQOn spectral, Qualibra
system with 160 slice Canon Aquilion Exceed LB), five ultrasound
machines (small animals: two GE Logiq e10, large animals: GE Logiq 8,
GE Logiq 9), a 3T MRI unit (Philips Ingenia Elition), a Hallmarq standing
equine MRI unit, nuclear scintigraphy (MIE Equine scanner H.R.) and a
modern PACS-Server (Philips IntelliSpace).
The annual case load consists of about 15’000 small animals, 5’000
horses and about 1’600 ruminants.
The above mentioned DIRU is embedded in the Center for Applied
Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (CABMM.uzh.ch) and therefore
provides a wide network in research comprising many opportunities to
participate in projects or to start with new ideas.

Requirements: Applicants must hold a DVM or equivalent degree, be
ACVR or ECVDI certified or eligible. Competence in general
radiography, diagnostic ultrasound, MR and CT is required.

We seek an individual who is enthusiastic about resident, student
training and teaching and who is looking for a unique opportunity to
become an integral member of a strong radiology team. Excellent
interpersonal and communication skills are a prerequisite. Fluent
communication in English is a requirement for this position. The
willingness to learn German is for sure a positive asset.

Salary: Dependent on qualifications and experience a salary package is
calculated, which is in line with Swiss standards.

Application process: To receive fullest consideration, applications
must be received by May 29th, 2023; the position remains open until
filled. Interested applicants should submit a letter of intent, curriculum
vitae, three letters of recommendation and contact information of three
referees. Applications and inquiries may be submitted via e-mail.
