Job Description

About The Team:

School of Veterinary Medicine

The first new School of Veterinary Medicine in Scotland for 150 years.

Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) has developed an innovative new School of Veterinary Medicine. We have a clear ambition to ‘promote the resilience of our graduates to sustainably support the animals and rural communities at the heart of Scotland’s Natural Economy’.

Wayne Powell, SRUC Principal and CEO. ‘We are an ambitious institution with a bold vision for the future. This is a ground-breaking model to expand access to educational opportunities and broaden the range of potential students who would not ordinarily be able to attend a School of Veterinary Medicine. It will also help solve existing skills shortages across Scotland’.

The Opportunity:

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to provide excellence in teaching and research to contribute to the school’s teaching on the BVSci programme, as well as allied health programmes in the School.

The candidate will have an extensive knowledge of veterinary animal husbandry to support early veterinary science teaching through lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical classes.

We are interested in candidates with expertise in several areas of animal management and production systems. This will also include a focus on the interactions between animals and their environment on production, performance, health and wellbeing in relation to both production and companion animal species. A keen interest and experience in animal ethics, welfare or behaviour would be highly desirable.

You will develop and deliver high quality teaching and scholarly outcomes as a member of the wider veterinary medicine teaching and research team.

It is expected that lecturers will have experience of scholarly and stakeholder/sector engagement activities evidenced through impactful publications and other outputs.

The successful candidate will be based at SRUC’s Aberdeen Campus.

We are looking to appoint either a Lecturer or Veterinary Lecturer depending on background qualifications and skills.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Appointment as Veterinary Lecturer is dependent on possession of a Veterinary degree and RCVS membership.
