Do you want to work as part of a growing team in a state of the art Hospital?

If so, the Department of Veterinary Medicine has an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Anaesthetist to join the anaesthesia team in the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital from 1 February 2020, or as soon after as possible thereafter. You will work within the team to provide anaesthesia and critical care services to the Small Animal, Farm Animal and Equine Hospital's; participate in the practical and theoretical instruction of veterinary students and training of Clinical Training Scholars; and take part in the out-of-hours on-call rota.
