Job description

Are you a veterinarian and are you excited to enhance your knowledge of veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia? We are looking for a resident!

Your job
The faculty of Veterinary Medicine offers an ECVAA approved residency training programme with a duration of three years, with the intention to enable you to sit the ECVAA examination in the following year. After completing the period of three years, you can remain in the employment of the Faculty for an additional period of three years. This retention period starts after the residency training programme has been completed, regardless of whether the exam has been passed at that time.

Together, the discipline of anaesthesia at the faculty of Veterinary Medicine annually provides clinical anaesthesia and analgesia for approximately 3100 companion animals and 630 horses for a wide range of diagnostical and surgical conditions. Your main tasks will consist of clinical duties and associated teaching (Bachelor's and Master's level students, interns). You are expected to participate in an out-of-hours rota.

The offered programme is designed to provide both the necessary practical training and theoretical learning environment to enable you to qualify for participation in the ECVAA board examinations upon completion of the residency programme.

To gain experience in ruminant and exotic animal anaesthesia or in other fields like cardiology or intensive care at other ECVAA or ACVAA approved training centres, you will get the opportunity to follow 2 weeks of externships abroad in both the second and third year of the residency.

Requirements

You are a veterinarian with an EU-recognised diploma and have undergone 1-1.5 years of relevant pre-residency training, preferably rotating through various clinical disciplines, although an anaesthesia-only internship is also sufficient (with preference for experience across species). You preferably have a background in large animal (farm animals and/or equines) medicine and/or anaesthesia. If you have gained experience through non-clinical internships or the same amount of time spent in clinical practice, we can consider your application only after a review by the ECVAA and only if evidence of an adequate clinical component can be provided.

We are looking for a highly motivated, conscientious candidate with excellent communication skills, who enjoys working in a team and shares our objectives of providing the highest quality of patient care. The ideal candidate is not only keen to enhance their own knowledge of veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia but is also dedicated to contribute to the continuous scientific progress within this field and within our faculty.

Conditions of employment

  • a position for 12 months, with an extension to a total of three years upon successful assessment;
  • at the end of the three-year residency programme, the contract may be extended, based on successful assessment, for a period of three years (when the retention scheme applies);
  • a working week of 38 hours and a gross monthly salary between €3,226 and €3,720 in the case of full-time employment (salary scale 10 under the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU));
  • an ‘out-of-hours’ allowance as a supplement to the base salary;
  • 8% holiday pay and 8.3% year-end bonus;
  • a pension scheme, partially paid parental leave and flexible terms of employment based on the CAO NU.

In addition to the terms of employment laid down in the CAO NU, Utrecht University has a number of schemes and facilities of its own for employees. This includes schemes facilitating professional development, leave schemes and schemes for sports and cultural activities, as well as discounts on software and other IT products. We also offer access to additional employee benefits through our Terms of Employment Options Model. In this way, we encourage our employees to continue to invest in their growth.

Together we are responsible for the education of veterinary students, provision of clinical services to horses and companion animals, and both clinical and more fundamental research in the areas of regenerative medicine, locomotion, genetics and reproduction.

You will work at the discipline of anaesthesia, which comprises multiple divisions within the Department of Clinical Sciences.
