We are seeking enthusiastic veterinary surgeons with experience in small animal practice, equine practice and/or veterinary public health for two part-time (0.5 FTE) Lecturer posts. The successful applicant will join a team of fellow professionals within the School of Veterinary Medicine committed to providing excellence in teaching for the benefit of a new generation of vets.

About the role 

  • In the role, you will use your skills to support theoretical and practical animal health and husbandry teaching across years one and two of the programme, small group clinical skills teaching in years three and four, and veterinary public health teaching in year five of the programme.

The School of Veterinary Medicine follows a distributed model for final year teaching and we are actively partnered with leading veterinary practices and local research institutes whose clinicians and scientists participate in teaching throughout the undergraduate curriculum. Successful candidates may be required to support students on rotation through off-site visits to partner practices.
