The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) is seeking to recruit a veterinary surgeon who is passionate about improving the health and welfare of un-owned animals in a shelter environment.

Shelter medicine is a new and expanding discipline in veterinary medicine that has the potential to have significant impact on the large population of animals. At the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science we have incorporated the principles and teaching of shelter medicine for a number of years. In partnership with charities we have expanded the teaching of shelter medicine to our clinical final year.

We are seeking to recruit a member of staff to further improve and develop the delivery of shelter medicine within the veterinary curriculum.

The SVMS has developed a novel and cutting-edge teaching curriculum designed to equip graduates with the diagnostic, medical and surgical skills required to succeed in a changing world. We aim to provide a progressive, dynamic environment which will deliver an outstanding learning experience drawing upon leading-edge teaching methods and the latest research advances.We offer an exciting and innovative five-year degree course which is designed with clinical outcomes in mind and is based upon excellence in teaching and scientific research.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the five-year curriculum with a focus on delivering clinical teaching to the final year students in partnership with local charities. We expect the new academic staff to share our vision, be dynamic and be able to innovate and seize opportunities.

Candidates must be MRCVS or eligible to register for MRCVS. A successful candidate would need to have considerable clinical experience with experience of working with veterinary students on clinical EMS as the post involves supervising final year students on rotations.
