This is an excellent opportunity for a veterinary surgeon to join the Bioresearch & Veterinary Services (BVS) department at the University of Edinburgh. BVS provides biomedical research services including Home Office and Named Veterinary Services across the University. We work within a large and diverse scientific community and oversees all aspects of welfare, breeding and husbandry of rodents, fish, farm animals and poultry used in biomedical research, under the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986. BVS is looking to recruit a Named Veterinary Surgeon (NVS) to join our enthusiastic and experienced NVS team supporting our world-leading research.
The Named Vets in BVS play a key role in supporting our research, training, Culture of Care and engagement with the 3Rs. Each NVS looks after a dedicated area, providing animal care advice, support to researchers and technicians and in house Personal Licence training. This includes a 1 in 4 on-call rota. The Named Vets work as a team to develop key aspects of our processes and procedures so that we are always trying to improve the quality of our research and the welfare of the animals under our care. The post holder will participate in the ethical review process and be part of the University’s Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body. This role would suit an experienced NVS or veterinary surgeon with research experience who is keen to work independently and develop their own skills and interests whilst part of a friendly team who are striving to care for animals and staff alike.
