Opportunity to join their high calibre team

The University of Adelaide is one of Australia's leading Group of Eight, research-intensive universities and is consistently ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world. Established in 1874, it is Australia's third oldest university with a strong reputation for preparing educated leaders and delivering research outcomes that contribute to local, national and global wellbeing.

University of Adelaide employees enjoy a range of benefits and favourable work conditions that include opportunities for career development and advancement. 

The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is one of four schools in the Faculty of Sciences, located at the University's Roseworthy campus approximately 50 km north of Adelaide on a 1600 hectare property, less than eight kilometres from the township of Gawler. The campus includes a working farm, animal holding facilities, yards, sheds and a range of general purpose and specialist teaching and research spaces and laboratories. It is South Australia's only veterinary school and constitutes a team of leading animal and veterinary science academics. The school has a Veterinary Health Centre with four units that offer a range of first opinion, ambulatory and specialist veterinary care across all animal species to the general public and referring veterinarians and are used in its veterinary program.

Adelaide is a wonderful city that offers everything you would expect, apart from the traffic. To the West, a wonderful sandy coastline but without the crowds. To the East, the marvellous rolling scenery of the Adelaide Hills. To the North, the fantastic Barossa valley, one of Australia’s premier wine growing areas. And within easy reach of all these, the beautiful Roseworthy Campus, home of South Australia’s new Veterinary School. A move to Adelaide will allow you to experience a lifestyle rarely possible in most parts of Australia or the rest of the world.
