The University of Surrey is one of the UK’s leading public research universities and proud to be ranked 9th in the UK in the National Student Survey. Join 2,500 staff and 17,000 students in an inspiring, innovative and diverse environment to make a positive impact through free-thinking and hard work.
Our Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences comprises four schools, working together under a ‘one health’ vision. Our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment provide the latest technologies for interdisciplinary research and teaching in human and animal health. Our mission is to sustainably improve the health and wellbeing of humans and animals, and their environments through new knowledge and its application to the design, development and delivery of responsible innovation and impact.
Our School of Veterinary Medicine aims to inspire and educate veterinary professionals who will advance veterinary medicine to meet the needs of a changing world. We embrace the traditional values of professionalism, scientific curiosity and clinical excellence, while developing graduates with broad horizons. Our research aims to advance knowledge in all aspects of veterinary medicine and education.
We are offering exciting and unique opportunities for two clinician-researchers to join a newly forming team, in a new research area with lots of opportunity for one health collaboration and to enable the school to develop the clinical research potential of our partner network. Focusing on either companion animal or production animal/equine, you will work with our extensive clinical, academic and industrial partner network (including over 90 veterinary practices) to initiate and deliver clinical research projects that inform the future of veterinary care. Using your knowledge of clinical epidemiology, you will undertake clinical trials and translational research studies, focusing on systematically collecting and analysing targeted clinical and pathological data from veterinary patients. Another part of the role is to work with academic colleagues to bid for external funding, develop and lead small research teams and share best-practice in clinical research with colleagues and students.
It is essential that you are registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS/FRCVS), have a higher research degree (PhD) or a post-graduate specialist clinical qualification and demonstrate evidence of the successful completion and publication of veterinary clinical research (relevant to career stage).
