Utrecht University - Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine seeks to appoint a Professor of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging.

The Faculty is considered one of the leading veterinary medicine faculties in Europe and is ranked in the top five worldwide. The Veterinary Medicine study programme is fully accredited in Europe but also by the American Veterinary Medical Association for the United States and Canada.

The Division of Diagnostic Imaging is an integral part of the Department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals. The division performs diagnostics on patients from the University Clinics of Companion Animals and for the University Equine Clinic, on external patients from practitioners, and on animals for research purposes. With 10 faculty members, (including board-certified radiologists), and 15 technical staff, the division has state-of-the-art facilities including radiography, CT, ultrasonography (including UTC), MRI for large and small animals, and SPECT for small animals only. The Division participates in the Faculty research programmes in “Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells and Cancer” and “Applied Veterinary Research” and operates in the wider context of the University-wide Utrecht Life Sciences program that provides outstanding research opportunities with the University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMCU) Centre for Image Sciences. Current research particularly focuses on neuroimaging, orthopaedics, oncology and more miscellaneous topics in the area of applied veterinary research.
