As a result of continued development and expansion of the curriculum and internal promotions, the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science is seeking to recruit an additional member of staff to further improve the delivery of various elements of the course.  We have developed a novel and cutting edge teaching curriculum designed to equip graduates with the diagnostic, medical and surgical skills required to succeed in a changing world.  We aim to provide a progressive, dynamic environment which will deliver an outstanding learning experience drawing upon leading-edge teaching methods and the latest research advances.  We offer an exciting and innovative five-year degree course which is designed with clinical outcomes in mind and is based upon excellence in teaching and scientific research.The School is research driven and is already achieving international acclaim in the five research themes (Comparative Medicine, Reproductive Biology, Population Health, Infection and Immunity and Veterinary Education).

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the five year curriculum across all modules, particularly professional skills, and contribute towards the maintenance and development of our clinical skills centre. The clinical skills centre offers a valuable resource for developing, practising and perfecting clinical skills for all stages of the course. The candidates will teach clinical, anatomical and professional skills across the course. This role will have a farm/equine bias. Candidates will also facilitate small group “Clinical Relevance” problem-oriented learning sessions, and one of these role holders will take a lead within the facilitator team. Clinical teaching according to species interests at our clinical associate practices may also be part of the role, depending on candidate skills.

The School is divided into three clinical divisions each responsible for teaching the basic clinical sciences as well as clinical subjects.  We expect new academic staff to share our vision, be dynamic and be able to innovate and seize opportunities.  A willingness to collaborate with other Schools within the University and to play a key role throughout the academic community at Nottingham is essential.

Candidates must be MRCVS or eligible to register for MRCVS. A further award such as a Certificate of Advanced Practice or teaching qualification would be desirable but is not essential.
