Additional teaching responsibilities will depend on departmental needs and the applicant’s area of disciplinary expertise. The anticipated position will be 100% teaching. Although there is no formal extension and research appointment, the successful candidate is expected to collaborate with other faculty and staff in youth extension programming and engage in research. Animal herds and flocks are available at the Ohio State Columbus and Wooster campuses to support the programs, and there is a highly functional meat harvesting/processing facility, and arena space for visual appraisal of animals in the Columbus campus Animal Science building.

In addition, the successful candidate is also expected to collaborate and develop a pattern of systematic engagement with industry stakeholders in their programmatic endeavors, many of which have a rich history as departmental alumni who were members of Ohio State competitive judging teams and with 4-H, FFA, and other youth programs, in recruiting prospective students to the Ohio State College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. Furthermore, the successful candidate is expected to provide oversight for strategic utilization and expenditures from funds accrued as a result of the sizeable endowment fund for livestock judging team. This fund was developed from gifts donated by departmental and general livestock judging team alumni as well as other stakeholders who value livestock evaluation experiences as an important aspect of the educational endeavors of the department and college.
