The Harper & Keele Veterinary School is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced lecturer in veterinary sciences to support delivery of our anatomy and physiology teaching in the first phase of the course.

Reporting to the Director of Admissions and Student Experience, the successful candidate will be a creative and forward-thinking member of the BVetMS programme team who can bring their collective experience of anatomy and physiology to ensure that veterinary students develop comprehensive, holistic, transferable, relevant, and informed capabilities and attributes, optimising their preparedness for entering the veterinary profession.  

The role will require academic leadership to coordinate resources and expertise across both Harper Adams and Keele universities, and to engage with key strategic partners and other relevant stakeholders across the sector.  Opportunities to develop institutional and national collaborations and scholarship in their area of interest will be available, informing individual academic career development and the potential to shape the future direction of the School’s research and engagement strategies across the veterinary sector.

A unique partnership between two outstanding universities, the Harper & 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 Shropshire and Staffordshire. 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 aim of 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. 

The appointee will be primarily based at either the Harper Adams University or Keele University campus, however the role will require regular travel between Harper Adams and Keele University for delivery of teaching and learning activities, collaboration with staff across the school, and for relevant 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.
