Position Summary

The Director of Equine Sciences will provide leadership and program direction for research, teaching, and outreach/engagement activities of the Equine Sciences program as they relate to the overall goals of the Animal Sciences Department. The Director will report to the Head of the Department of Animal Sciences. The candidate in this position will conduct equine-focused research and graduate student training. In addition, the Director will provide leadership and mentorship to, and coordinate the success of, faculty and staff involved in equine-oriented research activities such as reproduction, nutrition, genetics, behavior, welfare, exercise physiology, and equine-assisted activities and therapies.

Significant involvement in outreach and engagement with equine industry stakeholders is expected, including establishment and maintenance of industry relationships and mutually beneficial agreements, acquisition of grant awards, and gift fundraising. Involvement with equine industry organizations is expected, including through service in leadership positions. This position will include some teaching activities at the capstone level and through guest lectures. There is also an expectation to actively participate in student education via support of equine-related curricular development and delivery, interaction with students, student recruitment, student placement into internships and career positions, as well as involvement in the successful annual Legends of Ranching performance horse sale.

The Director will provide support and direction for Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies ( EAAT ) research and education, of which CSU has become a leader, in part due to ongoing construction of the Temple Grandin Equine Center ( TGEC ) facility which will allow for exploration of human/animal interactions. In addition, the Director will provide vital guidance and leadership for the anticipated future hiring of several new tenure-track equine-focused faculty positions with varying combinations of teaching, research, and outreach/extension appointments. Fostering multidisciplinary collaboration with adjacent research and teaching facilities (i.e., CSU Equine Reproduction Laboratory, CSU Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory, CSU Research Innovation Center, etc.) is also expected. High-level staff supervision, oversight of the CSU Equine Teaching and Research Center and animal well-being, and financial management is expected. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications and is based on a 9-month appointment but is competitive with typical 12-month appointments. The potential exists to augment salary up to a 12-month equivalent with extramural grants, contracts, and gifts. Further, this position oversees the annual allocation of proceeds from the endowment, which could be used to provide supplemental summer salary.

Conditions of Employment Pre-employment Criminal Background Check (required for new hires)
