Associate Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging

Faculty of  Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science

Department of Clinical Science

Subjec area

Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging includes imaging methods such as x-ray, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and scintigraphy and the interpretation of the methods on mainly small and large animals. These methods are central in research and clinical activities within the subject.

Duties

The position involves conducting research in the subject area, participating in and developing teaching and education at advanced level as well as supervision of post graduate students. The position also includes undertaking administrative duties and assignments within the department and faculty.

The main task of the associate senior lecturer is to develop a strong research platform, together with the Chair within the subject, in which the associate senior lecturer independently pursues research within the subject area. The duties include applying for external research funding.

Qualifications

Those holding a doctoral degree or equivalent scientific qualification are eligible to apply for the position as Associate Senior Lecturer. The candidate should preferably have held this degree or qualification for no more than five years before the closing date for applications for this position. To be eligible for the position as Associate Senior Lecturer, applicants must have scientific expertise within the subject area.

For this appointment, a veterinary degree and a PhD in the subject Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging is required, as well as documented experience from at least three of the imaging methods defined in the subject area. Good language skills in Swedish and English, both orally and in writing, are a requirement.

Assessment criteria

The main emphasis in the assessment of applications for the position as Associate Senior Lecturer will be placed on scientific skills. The next aspect assessed will be the applicant’s ability to develop an independent research profile within the relevant research area, and the ability to meet the requirements for promotion to a position as Senior Lecturer by the end of the Associate Senior lectureship.

Particular emphasis will be placed on documented experience of three-dimensional imaging techniques. Experience of a research environment outside SLU corresponding to a post-doctorate position or a doctoral degree from another university or research institute is expected. Training for international clinical specialist competence in diagnostic imaging (residency education) approved by the European or American College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging is a merit.

Application deadline:
