Do you want to make a difference and shape the future of veterinary medicine?

We are looking for ambitious individuals to help us train a new generation of highly skilled veterinary professionals who are passionate about animal welfare.

The new School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Central Lancashire is an international, research-active institution, the first facility of its kind to open in the county. You will be joining a talented team who are leading the way in modern learning today, committed to widening access and participation in veterinary education. The school is developing further research activities and postgraduate teaching opportunities, along with bespoke teaching and research environments. Collaboration with internal and external research networks is encouraged.

Whether you’re based in practice or higher education, your valuable skills will help us transform students into industry-ready graduates. Working in state-of-the-art facilities alongside an international team of experienced veterinarians and animal scientists, you’ll lead on designing and delivering innovative teaching while providing outstanding support to students throughout their journey.

We can offer you a rewarding career where you’ll get the opportunities and support you need to advance your career and expertise. For all Veterinary Lecturer roles, you will be given the learning and mentoring support needed to accelerate your development as an academic.

We offer fantastic benefits, including a competitive salary, an occupational pension scheme, a generous relocation package and 35 days annual leave (plus 8 bank holidays and 4 extra discretionary days off at Christmas). Many roles offer opportunities for flexible working.

Whilst this is a full-time position, applications from applicants seeking a part-time role (minimum 0.6FTE) are also welcome.

This is an exciting new opportunity for a veterinary surgeon who is enthusiastic about training the next generation of veterinary surgeons in small mammal, exotic, and wildlife clinical skills, medicine and surgery.

Based primarily at our Preston campus as part of the academic team, you will be responsible for delivering teaching and assessment around all aspects of exotics education, including the handling and clinical assessment of a wide variety of non-traditional-companion animals housed within our partner institution, Myerscough University Centre. Further off-campus teaching both at Myerscough and our clinical associate veterinary practices is also likely as our students progress through their education.

You will have:

  • A veterinary degree
  • A sound knowledge and practical experience of veterinary sciences including small mammal, exotic, and wildlife medicine and clinical skills
  • Higher education teaching qualification or professional (e.g., PGCHE, FHEA or equivalent), or a commitment to complete within one year of appointment
  • A relevant postgraduate qualification or equivalent clinical specialisation

We are proud to be a diverse, multicultural university. We are committed to building a truly inclusive culture where diversity is championed. Applications are particularly welcomed from individuals who will support the diversification within the University and support its development of a culture that is inclusive and welcoming to all.

Closing date: 29 April 2024.
