Are you passionate about the pastoral livestock (sheep, beef cattle, deer) industries but want a change from clinical practice? Are you interested in teaching with a desire to train the next generation of rural professionals?

An exciting opportunity exists at Massey University's School of Veterinary Science for an enthusiastic, organised NZ-registerable veterinarian to deliver planned on-farm clinical teaching along with set-piece (practical, tutorial, lecture) teaching in pastoral livestock health, production and parasitology. In this teaching role you will be working with some of the brightest young people around, training veterinary science, veterinary technology, animal science and agriculture students. You will be part of a supportive and dynamic team of veterinarians and animal scientists. As an extra bonus - no on-call! There is the potential for this to be a part-time role.
