Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies
Located on the Easter Bush Campus, just outside Edinburgh in Scotland, an exciting opportunity has arisen for the right individual to join the small animal cardiopulmonary team based in the Hospital for Small Animals at the University of Edinburgh Veterinary School.
As part of a team covering all aspects of small animal cardiology and canine respiratory medicine, you will play an important role in the development and provision of a fully integrated clinical service that supports our expanding caseload. You will play a key part in patient and client care; the delivery and assessment of the BVM&S undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes; and in enhancing eLearning and on-line teaching initiatives.
Working in a multidisciplinary environment where collaboration is actively encouraged, you will be supported by teams of specialists in internal medicine, oncology, anaesthesia, soft tissue surgery, orthopaedics, neurology, emergency and critical care among others.
You will be provided with the support and time you require to develop your clinical interests, teaching and research ambitions. Interaction with colleagues across the range of specialist disciplines will provide the support and stimulation you need to develop your career from a campus with strong collaborative links. Research in Edinburgh takes place within a vibrant, integrated, and interdisciplinary research structure which facilitates and encourages interaction between researchers across groups, centres, schools and colleges.
You will hold a veterinary degree and, at the time of appointment, be registered with the RCVS; and be boarded or board eligible for the appropriate European or American Diploma. For a senior lecturer post it is expected that you will be a diploma holder. Experience in teaching and basic science or clinical research along with a postgraduate research qualification to PhD level are desirable, but not essential.

Appointment to this post will be at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level depending on experience.
