Vacancy Ref: 131589
Salary: Grade 6, SP 25, £32,332 per annum

The University of Glasgow’s Small Animal Hospital is seeking to recruit Junior Clinicians (service specific intern) to join our oncology/radiotherapy team. This position may suit someone who has recently completed a rotating internship and who is looking for the next step towards specialization.

You will support the delivery of an efficient and effective small animal oncology referral service by providing clinical activity under supervision of our 3 Oncology Diplomates, and by contributing to out-of-hours service provision.  Our Oncology/radiotherapy service, through the use of advanced imaging techniques, specialist knowledge and treatment facilities, strives to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient under the direction of a specialist. 

The School of Veterinary Medicine has an excellent international reputation in teaching, clinical services and research and is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), the European Association of Establishments of Veterinary Education (EAEVE) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).  Our purpose-built hospital is one of the most sophisticated in Europe allowing companion animals from across the United Kingdom to benefit for the most advanced care available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year from some of the best specialist vets in the world.

The Small Animal Hospital is located adjacent to the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in the picturesque Garscube Estate, 10 minutes’ drive from the vibrant “West End” of Glasgow, and less than one hour from Loch Lomond. Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the third largest in the UK, and has recently been named the top cultural and creative centre in the UK in a European Commission report (https://composite-indicators.jrc.ec.europa.eu/cultural-creative-cities-monitor/). The same study rated Glasgow as the top city in Europe for openness, tolerance and trust. In addition, the New York Times ranked Glasgow in the top10 cities to visit worldwide in 2018 (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/travel/places-to-visit.html).

Applications are invited from candidates with a veterinary degree registerable with RCVS who have completed a rotating internship or equivalent and have post-graduate clinical experience in small animal oncology.
The post is full time and fixed term for up to 1 year.
