Competitive Salary

We invite applications for a Staff Clinician/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging in the Department of Clinical Science and Services at The Royal Veterinary College (RVC). The imaging service is integrated into the large team of specialists at the RVC’s Queen Mother Hospital for Animals, providing a varied and interesting caseload in an environment focusing on team work and achieving the highest standards of clinical care for our patients. The imaging service is equipped with a 1.5T MRI (Philips Intera including cardiac applications), 16-slice CT (Philips MX8000iDT) with power injector, high end ultrasound unit (Samsung RS80A), digital radiography (SoundEklin true DR C-series) and radiography/fluoroscopy suite (Siemens Axiom Iconos). A gamma camera is available in the nearby equine diagnostic centre. Replacement of our CT unit with a high end multi-detector CT unit will be completed in 2018, and will enable ECG-gated imaging and feature a dual source power injector. The reading room is equipped with 5 Osirix reading stations and an advanced CT image reconstruction and manipulation stations. Our PACS is due to be replaced by a vendor neutral archive with an additional zero footprint viewer in 2018, giving universal access to patient images including DICOM files as well as clinical images and videos, endoscopy videos, histology and pathology images.

Our small animal imaging team consists of four board-certified radiologists (two double boarded with ACVR and ECVDI, two ECVDI Diplomates). Our large animal team consists of one ECVDI Diplomate, and three ECVDI associates. We currently have three small animal imaging residents and three large animal imaging residents in training.

You will be expected to take an active role in the clinical activities of the section, providing an efficient and high standard of clinical care for our patients and taking an active role in undergraduate and postgraduate clinical teaching, including formal and informal group teaching for undergraduates. You will also be expected to supervise and mentor postgraduate students and participate in clinical research. The RVC offers regular opportunities for personal and professional development in house. A fully equipped gym including a climbing wall and a variety of classes offered is available on campus.

The RVC’s Hawkshead campus is located near Potters Bar in Hertfordshire, just north of London. London, including the RVC’s campus in Camden, is easily accessible by train from Potters Bar. London is home to 19 universities and a hub for top academic research and teaching. There are endless opportunities for sport, culture and entertainment. Travel to/from London is facilitated by five international airports and numerous national and international rail services.

We are looking for candidates with a RCVS-registrable degree in veterinary science, who hold or are eligible to sit the examination for a postgraduate diploma in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. Individuals should also hold or be eligible for RCVS Specialist status. A background in research work in one of the College’s areas of special interest and a PhD, although desirable, are not essential.
