The University of Bristol’s Veterinary School is seeking to recruit an experienced veterinary surgeon with a strong interest in Equine surgery and a passion for teaching. We are looking for someone with energy, creativity and commitment, to help our students develop the surgical knowledge and skills that they need to flourish in the workplace.

Experience and enthusiasm for teaching is essential to the role. You must hold a Veterinary Degree recognised by the RCVS that allows you to practise veterinary medicine within the UK. You must have experience in the delivery of equine surgical services at a referral level and will have an RCVS, European, American or equivalent Diploma (or eligibility to sit the examinations there for) in equine surgery.

Base salary scales are shown. Additionally, you will be paid veterinary and ‘on-clinics’ allowances.
