Exciting opportunity for a dedicated, enthusiastic Small Animal Internal Medicine specialist to join a veterinary program rated in the global Top 50.

The University of Adelaide’s School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences has achieved outstanding levels of excellence in 11 years of operation.  The School’s veterinary program leapt into the Global Top 50 in the 2019 QS academic discipline rankings and received an ERA evaluation rating at level 5 (well above international standard) in the 2019 Excellence for Research in Australia evaluation round.  The School provides exceptional outcome-based education and training of animal and veterinary scientists in a strong research environment, consisting of world leading multi-disciplinary teams that provide opportunities for cross disciplinary research, education and innovation in animal health and welfare.

To enable further improvements to be made to its research and education remit, the School seeks a dedicated and enthusiastic specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine to join an established and engaging team.  Working in the Department of Companion Animal Health, the appointee will be expected to develop a strong research profile while providing high quality teaching to motivated veterinary students. There will also be a requirement to contribute as a referral specialist to clinical services delivered through an Accredited Veterinary Hospital.  Strong, collegial support will be available from experienced academic specialists and pathologists, veterinary nurses, client services personnel and technical support staff.

To be successful, an applicant will need to have a successful track record in clinical research, including a demonstrated ability to attract funds and develop a high quality research program in a new setting.  You will need to be an enthusiastic, innovative and team-orientated person with a passion for achieving and delivering the highest standards in research, teaching and clinical service.

Applications are invited from candidates covering a range of career stages.  We are interested to receive applications irrespective of whether you have just completed a residency in small animal internal medicine, or have acquired many years of experience. This opportunity will take you to the next level of your academic career to advance your research and teaching profile.    

Visa sponsorship and an attractive relocation package is available for the right candidate.

To be successful you should have at a minimum:

  • Specialist training in small animal internal medicine (Australian Fellowship or American/European Boards), or eligibility to sit those examinations following completion of an approved residency.
  • Proven ability to contribute independently to a clinical referral service in internal medicine.
  • Qualification in Veterinary Science acceptable for registration in South Australia.
  • Evidence of significant contributions to the teaching effort of a department, school or faculty in small animal medicine at tertiary level
