The candidate would be responsible for foaling out 5-10 routine pregnancies in the clinic each spring, along with high risk pregnancies as needed. Stallion work consists primarily of routine collection and processing for shipment. The candidate will be expected to perform twin reductions and fetal sexing, manage subfertility in the mare and stallion, and be available for frequent reproductive consults with referring veterinarians. The successful candidate should possess the interest and skills to perform non-reproductive work during the fall/winter off-season.

In this position they would be expected to be able to assist in management of the staff they work with. They should be well versed in dealing with reproductive patient management and care.
