We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic veterinary clinical pathologist to join our team of board-certified veterinary anatomic pathologists, based in our £11m purpose-built, state-of-the-art Veterinary Pathology Centre in Guildford, Surrey.

In addition to being a Member or Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS; or holding a degree that is registrable with the RCVS), you will be board-certified in veterinary clinical pathology (RCPath, ECVP, ACVP), and you will have a particular interest in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. You will have excellent communication skills and an appetite for innovative teaching and diagnostics, and you will be able to work well in a team. 

This will primarily be a teaching post. You will be tasked with further developing the clinical pathology component of the School of Veterinary Medicine’s veterinary curriculum, and with setting up a clinical pathology teaching laboratory. However, in addition to providing clinical diagnostic pathology support to the veterinary community, you will also have the opportunity to work with experts from local world class veterinary practices, institutes, and government agencies, through our many collaborative partnerships.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to play a leading role in helping to shape the University’s veterinary education programmes and to further develop our veterinary diagnostic pathology service. You will be supported by a team of veterinarians, board-certified pathologists, scientists, and skilled technical staff.

In return, we offer a generous pension scheme and annual leave entitlement, along with fantastic career developmental opportunities. In addition, you will be supported in gaining the academic Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching.
