Job description:

We are looking for a keen and enthusiastic intern to join our friendly and dynamic small animal anaesthesia team. Currently, the team consists of an ECVAA diplomate, three ECVAA residents, 3 interns and several anaesthesia technicians. Although functionally separate units, the Small Animal Anaesthesia Department has close connections with the Equine Anaesthesia Department where 2 further ECVAA diplomates are employed.

Primarily, the work will consist of contribution to the high level of patient care during the peri-operative period. Our case load is quite varied, and consists of surgical patients, patients undergoing diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI, scintigraphy, ultrasound, radiography), and radiation therapy. We also anaesthetize patients for minimal invasive cardiovascular procedures, and occasionally birds and other animals for our exotics department. We provide out-of-hours anaesthesia service for both referral as well as first opinion emergency cases, which results in a rather varied and interesting caseload. Good back up is provided during the first months of employment.

Our Small Animal Veterinary Department provides a wide variety of clinical cases in terms of species, pathology and procedures for the intern to gain experience of the practical and theoretical aspects of veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia. Journal clubs, tutorials and lecture presentations are regularly held in all aspects of anaesthesia, analgesia and other relevant topics.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the education of our master students, not only in their practical skills but also in advancing their veterinary knowledge by providing tutorials to small groups of students (teaching and communication in English is not a problem).


You are a veterinarian with an EU-recognized diploma and have (ideally) gained some experience in small animal veterinary medicine. We are looking for a motivated, conscientious candidate with good communication skills, who likes to work in a team and shares our objectives of providing the highest quality of patient care. Fluent English (both spoken and written) is mandatory, learning to communicate in Dutch is highly encouraged.

Conditions of employment:

We offer a position for initially one year, ideally starting in September 2019, with the possibility for prolongation with another year if the position is filled to the satisfaction of both parties.

The gross salary is in the range of € 2.476,- to a maximum of € 2.717,- per month (scale 10 Dutch Universities). The salary will be supplemented with an ‘out-of-hours’ allowance, a holiday bonus of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8,3% per year. In addition, participation in a good pension scheme is ensured. For further rights and conditions the applicant is referred to the extensive Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.


Utrecht University has great ambitions for its teaching quality and study success rates. This also applies to its clear research profiles which are centred around 4 themes: Sustainability, Life Sciences, Youth & Identity, and Institutions. Utrecht University plays a prominent role in Dutch society and contributes to finding answers to a variety of topical and future societal issues.
