Staff Clinician/Lecturer in Veterinary Oncology (Clinical educator track)

Nr. Potters Bar, Hertfordshire

Competitive Salary

We are looking for a Staff Clinician/Lecturer in Veterinary Oncology in the Department of Clinical Science and Services. This person would work mainly from our Hawkshead Campus, a 15-minute train ride from the centre of cosmopolitan London. The candidate would join our existing Oncology team and will be expected to enhance the department’s reputation through scholarship in clinical activities and teaching. You will achieve this by delivering professional services within the College’s hospitals, delivering clinical training on veterinary and paraveterinary undergraduate curricula and participating in postgraduate training programmes.  

We are looking for true team players with exceptional leadership and communication skills and who are enthusiastic about working with students, including supporting undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. We are looking for candidates with a RCVS registrable degree in veterinary science, who hold or are eligible to obtain an American or European postgraduate diploma in Veterinary Oncology. A background in research work in one of the College’s areas of special interest and a PhD, although desirable, are not essential. 

Additionally, there is potential for applicants only seeking a fixed term contract to come on a temporary basis for a year. Please contact us to discuss if this is your preference.
