Job description

The Harper and Keele Veterinary School is seeking to appoint a number of suitably qualified veterinary surgeons or pre-clinical scientists to support the design and delivery of the first year of the veterinary programme. The Director of Veterinary Education will assume a senior leadership responsibility for design and delivery of the veterinary curriculum, including pedagogic research leadership and delivery of teaching activities.

A unique partnership between two outstanding universities, the Harper and Keele Veterinary School brings together two distinctive institutions with a track record of excellence in teaching and student experience to provide an exciting new opportunity for veterinary students to train within rural Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Pooling the ambitions, experience and resources of both universities, the Harper and Keele Veterinary School will represent a unique step forward in the provision of veterinary medicine in the UK. We look forward to welcoming the first cohort of Harper and Keele Veterinary School students in 2020.

Together Keele and Harper Adams universities have 186 years of heritage in the animal and human health areas. Both institutions are recognised for their strengths in employability, student satisfaction and first class teaching and have a shared commitment to research in food security and sustainability. Set on a 635 hectare farm in Shropshire, Harper Adams University has a long pedigree in agriculture and animal sciences, supported by first class animal facilities; veterinary nursing and veterinary physiotherapy.

Keele University in nearby Staffordshire is a broad-based research-intensive university with sustained excellence in life sciences as well as home to a highly successful medical school, frequently ranked among the UK's top ten. The joint veterinary school will provide students with the opportunity to take advantage of both institutions with a common commitment to excellence and complementary skills.

* Candidates that do not currently have a teaching qualification will be expected to achieve at least a postgraduate certificate in higher education within three years of employment.
