We are seeking two enthusiastic anatomic pathologists to join a team of three faculty and one resident in our £11m purpose-built state-of-the-art Veterinary Pathology Centre. This on site role will enhance our 100 strong team of teaching and research staff in the University of Surrey School of Veterinary Medicine.  

The Veterinary Pathology Centre was built seven years ago and contains both a CL2 (containment level 2) post-mortem area with viewing gallery, and a CL3 post-mortem area. Private diagnostic post-mortems and APHA (Animal Plant Health Agency) surveillance post-mortems are undertaken at the site. 

The role

The role will include undertaking diagnostic service, including biopsy and post-mortems, teaching final year (year 5) students on intramural rotations (IMR) post-mortem skills, and participating in lecturing, practical classes, and assessment of year 1-4 undergraduates. Supervision and participation in the residency programme is also expected, and you may be asked to provide CPD activities to external partners from time to time. 

This is a permanent post subject to satisfactory performance and is based on site in Guildford. There would be opportunities for individuals to develop their career through research or other aspects as preferred.

About you

Successful candidates must have a veterinary degree that is registerable with the RCVS, have experience in surveillance and post-mortem services, and be interested in teaching and supervising students in the veterinary pathology aspects of our curriculum. To be successful in this role, you will have excellent communication skills, an appetite for innovative teaching, strong organisational skills and will enjoy working in a team.

You will have an interest in broadening your veterinary profile through the development and delivery of undergraduate teaching in veterinary pathology and you will be supported in achieving this by participation in our inhouse, externally accredited Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. In addition to completing this qualification, for those interested in developing further skills in education, study at Masters level (part-time) may also be supported (financially and in time allocation).

Individuals with board qualifications from ACVP, ECVP or FRCPath are preferred. 

What we can offer

The post is based in Guildford, Surrey, which is less than an hour from central London, and close to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The University is close to Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Veterinary Pathology Centre and Veterinary School of Medicine share a campus with Surrey Sports Park. 

We offer a great range of employee benefits including a substantial annual leave entitlement of 30 days holiday plus 7 university closure days and 8 bank holidays, a generous pension, relocation assistance (where appropriate), access to world-class leisure facilities on campus, a range of travel schemes, and supportive family friendly benefits including an excellent on-site nursery. We offer a vibrant and forward-thinking working environment and access to a variety of staff development opportunities to help you fulfil your potential.
