Rhinebeck Equine is offering a seasonal fellowship position in Equine Reproduction beginning in January 2024. The position is intended for an individual with a keen interest in equine reproduction and stud farm medicine. The fellowship will be completed under the direct supervision of a Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists while being supported by multiple specialists in equine surgery and internal medicine. The fellow will participate in all aspects of the in-house and ambulatory reproductive services offered.
The applicant must have a good attitude, strong work ethic, and be a graduate of a college of veterinary medicine. Advanced training in the field of equine reproduction or completion of an equine internship would be viewed favorably but are not required for the position. The degree of supervision and independence will be dictated by the individual’s experience.
The position is primarily clinical with opportunities for research projects and publication if desired. The on-call requirements are significant from January through June as the candidate will be involved in all equine dystocias and after-hours foalings in the clinic.
The equine caseload is diverse and varied, with approximately 50% of the work being ambulatory and the remaining 50% in hospital. The ambulatory work is predominantly Thoroughbred breeding farms with some Standardbred work as well, with a strong emphasis on reproductive work but including some foal medicine. The hospitalized caseload encompasses embryo transfer, frozen semen breeding management, cooled semen breeding management, periparturient complications, high-risk pregnancies, and referral cases. Stallion work is limited but includes epididymal flushing and freezing, problem stallion workups, and a handful of routine collections for shipping and freezing.
For further information or questions regarding the fellowship position, please contact Dr. Lauren Pasch via email at email@example.com.
Interested applicants will be required to submit a brief letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and a list of at least 2 references, along with contact information. Supporting letters of reference should be sent separately by the individual providing the reference. All supporting material should be directed to Dr. Lauren Pasch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for completed applications is December 15th, 2023, or until the position has been filled.
Due to difficulties with immigration services and the inability to guarantee the obtaining of a suitable visa to allow work within the United States, this position can only be offered to citizens of the United States or candidates with eligibility for immigration clearance for the United States at this time. Preference is given to graduates of AVMA-accredited programs.
