The candidate will also be responsible for the teaching of toxicology within the veterinary professional curriculum.

The Department houses the multi-institutional Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program which offers substantial opportunities for collaboration. Preference will be given to those candidates with a research interest that complements existing departmental and college research programs, including respiratory diseases, oncology (via the INTERACT program https://vetmed.okstate.edu/interact/index.html ), and neurotoxicology.
