The Harper and Keele Veterinary School is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced veterinary pathologist to lead on the design and delivery of a contemporary, innovative and inclusive programme of veterinary pathology teaching within the BVetMS curriculum

Reporting to the Director of Veterinary Education, the successful candidate will be a creative and forward-thinking colleague who can implement a student-centric, competency-based learning experience in all aspects of veterinary pathology, provide academic leadership to coordinate resources and expertise across both Harper Adams and Keele universities and who can engage with key strategic partners, external pathology providers and other relevant stakeholders within the veterinary profession.

By having oversight of the pathology module and relevant rotations the role will contribute to ongoing teaching and planning activities across the programme to ensure that pathology is fully integrated and student outcomes are aligned to the Vet School’s strategic plan.

This opportunity also enables the appointee to tailor the development of their career in veterinary pathology and to shape the future direction of the school’s research and industry engagement strategies in this field.

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.

 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. The joint veterinary school provides students with the opportunity to take advantage of both institutions with a common commitment to excellence and complementary skills.

The appointee will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to the school’s widening access to the veterinary profession for students from all backgrounds and to embrace and engage in the School’s culture of innovation in teaching and learning. 

To be successful you will require a degree in veterinary medicine and higher qualifications in veterinary pathology. You will also have a proven track record of teaching and assessing within a Higher Education setting. 

Although the appointee will be primarily based at the Harper Adams University campus, this role will require regular travel between Harper Adams and Keele University for lecture delivery and administrative duties.  

The Harper & Keele Veterinary School is committed to operating flexible working practices wherever possible.

The Harper & Keele Veterinary School values equality and diversity across our workforce and to ensuring our staff community is reflective of the diversity of our student population. In support of these commitments, we welcome applications from individuals of Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds for all roles.
