Open Positions 

The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine is seeking dynamic people to join its Section of Diagnostic Imaging.

 

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Louisiana State University is currently inviting applications for one tenure-track or clinical track faculty position in Diagnostic Imaging at the Assistant and Associate Professor level. Requirements for the position include a DVM or equivalent and Board certification or board eligibility by the American College of Veterinary Radiology.

 

The caseload at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital is diverse with small, large and exotic patients making up most of its cases. The hospital also changed over to digital imaging in 2005. Large animal radiology is equipped with an Eklin DR system and small animal radiology with Tru DR form Sound Technologies. Both Vetpacs and efilm are used for image viewing on top of the line 3 megapixel medical grade Eizo gray scale monitors. Over 50 image viewing workstations are located throughout the hospital for use with clients, in rounds or special procedures rooms. We also feature separate ultrasound machines in both the large and small animal sections, a nuclear imaging suite with a gamma camera integrating to Mirage software and a GE 16-slice CT unit with dedicated 3D workstation for both small and large animal imaging. Our 1.5 T Hitachi Echelon MRI unit is our most recent addition to the section. In addition, our active oncology division performs radiation therapy in-house with an IMRT-capable linear accelerator. 

 

Our team includes four experienced technicians, two large animal technicians and one office staff. We currently have three full-time Radiologists and are looking for a fourth individual to complete the team. The School of Veterinary Medicine at Louisiana State University is dedicated to the support and further development of its imaging division and is seeking individuals who will help us achieve our goals in research, teaching and service. Whether your interests are in small or large animal imaging, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine or ultrasound, LSU has the team and working environment to support your endeavors.

 

Being the capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is a city rich in culture and entertainment. Its unique nature settings, environment, museums and array of sporting activities make it an exciting place to live and work. Baton Rouge has not been directly affected by the recent disasters which occurred in Louisiana. On the contrary, the city has grown since many former citizens and businesses of New Orleans have now relocated in the state capital.
