A vacancy has arisen for a permanent Veterinary Pathologist to work in our Research & Pathology Department, based at our pathology unit located near Honiton, Devon, UK.
The post presents a unique professional opportunity for a veterinary surgeon interested in equine pathology.
As the Veterinary Pathologist, you will be involved in diagnostic post mortem examinations and will oversee the clinical pathology service provided by the onsite laboratory. You will also work closely with the clinical team looking at herd health and disease trends and will contribute towards non-invasive research programmes aimed at improving donkey welfare. You will also be involved in teaching visiting veterinary surgeons and veterinary students undertaking EMS placements at the Donkey Sanctuary. By providing these services you will contribute to the Charity’s vision to improve donkey health, welfare and education worldwide.
