We offer an exciting opportunity for an experienced veterinary surgeon with a passion for inspiring undergraduate students in all aspects of small animal surgery. The successful candidate should hold postgraduate qualification in small animal surgery and have significant experience of delivering a high-quality surgical service.

The post holder will join the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and our supportive, multidisciplinary teaching team, who are dedicated to inspiring and equipping the next generation of veterinarians to engage with the challenges of the 21st Century.
