Date Posted: 
July 21, 2014 - October 19, 2014

The Animal Health Trust is a large, UK-based veterinary institute dedicated to promoting animal welfare through improved understanding of diseases in dogs, cats and horses and is situated in a beautiful, rural location four miles from Newmarket in the East Anglian region of England, about an hour’s journey from London. We have both small animal and equine referral clinics along with number of research groups including virology, epidemiology, pathology, genetics and molecular oncology.

Our multidisciplinary small animal clinic is committed to providing the highest standards of patient care, and has an active programme of clinical research and post-graduate training (internships and residencies). The diagnostic imaging group works closely with specialists in other disciplines including neurology, ophthalmology, oncology, internal medicine, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, dermatology, anaesthesia and critical care. The pathology and clinical pathology laboratories at the AHT complement the clinical services, providing a full on-site diagnostic service. 

We are looking for a small animal radiologist to join our imaging team from autumn 2014. All imaging facilities are available on site, including 1.5T MRI, 16-slice CT, digital radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography and scintigraphy. The successful candidate will join a team of two other European Board-certified radiologists, one post-trainee, two residents (one small animal and one large animal track) and a radiography nurse. We are aiming to recruit a radiologist who is either ECVDI/ACVR board-certified or board-eligible, or an experienced but non-ECVDI/ACVR Boarded radiologist who would like to obtain the credentials to permit them to sit the ECVDI Boards whilst working for a clinical-level salary.

Starting salary will be dependent on experience and qualifications. The AHT offers an excellent work-life balance and in addition our remuneration package includes an excellent pension scheme with employer contribution rates of 16%, life assurance of three times salary, up to 30 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays, employee health plan worth £850 per annum and employee assistance scheme, generous CPD allowance and time off clinics for clinical research.
