The University of Surrey School of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for a Teaching Fellow in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology. The successful candidate will join our enthusiastic, dedicated, and friendly team of international pathologists and residents, based in our £11m purpose-built, state-of-the-art Veterinary Pathology Centre in Guildford, Surrey.

Applicants must be a Member or Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), or must possess a degree that is registrable with the RCVS, and must also be board-certified in veterinary anatomic pathology (ACVP, ECVP, or RCPath).

The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills and work well in a team, functioning in the areas of diagnostic service, student teaching, and resident training.  

Diagnostic responsibilities involve participation in the necropsy and biopsy services in the Veterinary Pathology Centre. Submissions comprise a varied species range that includes companion animals (dogs, cats, horses), ruminants, pigs, poultry, camelids, wildlife, and zoo and exotic species.

Student teaching responsibilities include active participation in teaching anatomic pathology in the veterinary medical curriculum, which is committed to training practice-ready veterinarians. Specific teaching duties will focus on didactic teaching of anatomic pathology, predominantly to 2nd-year students, as well as teaching final-year students who will work with the team on diagnostic duty during their clinical rotation in pathology.  

Resident training responsibilities include supervision of residents on necropsy duty, biopsy duty, and case sign-out, as well as participation in structured training rounds and in the residents’ continued professional development. 

The current team of pathologists and residents is engaged in the national and international pathology community through volunteer committee service and conference presentations. Opportunities for creative scholarly activity can be tailored to the successful candidate’s interests and may include collaborative or independent research. Many opportunities for collaborative research exist in various subspecialty areas and in biomedical sciences, courtesy of strong links with researchers across the University of Surrey, as well as through our many collaborative partnerships with clinical researchers in specialty clinics, zoological societies, scientific institutes, and government agencies. Continued Professional Development is both encouraged and supported. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated pathologist to play a leading role in helping to grow our diagnostic pathology service, develop our new residency training programme, and shape the University’s veterinary education programmes.

As part of the University’s commitment to career development, you will be supported in gaining the academic Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching. The University also offers a generous pension scheme and annual leave entitlement.
