Utah State University Looking to Fill Teaching Position

Utah State University has an opening for an assistant or associate professor of production animal agriculture thanks to the recent retirement of longtime professor Dr. Lyle McNeal.

The Department of Animal, Dairy and Veterinary Sciences at USU is seeking applicants for a nine-month (academic year) or 12-month (fiscal year) tenure-track faculty position in production animal agriculture. The successful candidate will contribute to the teaching (65 percent), extension (clinical veterinary service, 30 percent) and service (5 percent) missions of the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences.

The preferred candidate will have an interest and expertise in small ruminant (i.e., sheep and goat) production agriculture. Teaching responsibilities will include both lower and upper-division courses in the ADVS undergraduate curriculum. In addition to classroom instruction, the incumbent will be expected to provide hands-on learning opportunities for students at USU farm units and/or privately-owned farms/ranches. The area of research will be determined by the incumbent's area(s) of expertise, and there are numerous opportunities for collaboration with other faculty members in ADVS.
