This is an exciting and unique opportunity for an enthusiastic and passionate veterinary surgeon to play a key role in delivering world-leading veterinary clinical research that is practice-based and has a clear focus on primary care, at the same time as helping to shape the future of veterinary education.

The University Of Surrey School Of Veterinary Medicine is the only UK veterinary school with an extensive, established partnership network of more than 50 veterinary practices and a fully distributed teaching model of clinical education (Intramural Rotations or IMR). Our undergraduate programme emphasises training day one competencies within a first opinion context. Veterinary clinical research, focussing on practice-based research and primary care, represents a key, strategic focus for the School.

As Lecturer in Veterinary Clinical Research you will act as a catalyst for expanding clinical research outputs within the School of Veterinary Medicine, maximising the value of the IMR partner network for practice-based research and answering the ‘big questions’ in primary care that are most relevant to practitioners. You will inspire and enable colleagues, external partners and students to engage with and address these questions. This post represents an opportunity to utilise the electronic health data available from our partner network and build capacity in practice-based research, surveillance, observational and interventional studies.

The post holder will join the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and our supportive, multidisciplinary team, who are dedicated to inspiring and equipping the next generation of veterinarians to engage with the challenges of the 21stCentury. Enthusiasm and a willingness to work flexibly are essential, alongside excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills.

In return, we offer a generous pension scheme and annual leave entitlement, along with fantastic career developmental opportunities.
