Utrecht University is looking for an Assistant Professor in Equine Reproduction. The successful candidate will join a ‘reproduction team’ consisting of five Veterinarians (three other ECAR diplomats), Clinical Assistants, 3 Lab Assistants, a Secretary and a small group of dedicated researchers.
Together we are responsible for examining and/or treating more than 600 mares and 300 stallions per year for a range of conditions that spans the entire of equine reproduction. In particular, we offer a broad range of assisted reproductive technologies, including ovum-pick intracytoplasmic sperm injection, as clinical services. We collect oocytes from more than 300 mares per produce, approximately 1 embryo per mare, thereby generating large numbers of embryos to transfer. In addition, we inseminate more than 500 hundred mare/cycles per season, perform around 250 embryo flushes and transfer more than >250 ICSI embryos.
The appointee will be involved primarily in clinical duties and associated teaching (students, interns and resident training) but will also be expected to conduct applied research and assist with more fundamental projects. After a suitable acclimatization period, the appointee will participate in out-of-hours duties (routine weekend obstetrical emergencies).
You are a Veterinarian with extensive experience with clinical equine reproduction, including assisted breeding techniques. You also hold a a post-graduate diploma in Equine Reproduction (i.e.. European College of Animal Reproduction or American of Theriogenologists). Previous research experience and a desire to initiate and participate in clinical research will be an advantage. The University Equine Clinic aspires quality, efficiency and a high standard of customer service. Therefore, we expect you to be a good team-player.
You will be offered a full-time position, initially for one year. Upon good performance, the contract will be extended. The gross salary - depending on previous qualifications and experience - ranges between €3,637 and €4,978 (scale 11 according to the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities) gross per month for a full-time employment. Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8 % and a year-end bonus of 8.3 % per year. We offer a pension scheme, (partly paid) parental leave, collective insurance schemes and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model).

A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major societal themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Sustainability.
Utrecht University’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary school in the Netherlands. It employs approximately 900 staff and is one of Europe’s leaders in veterinary education, research and patient-care and is accredited by the American and Canadian Veterinary Medical Associations.
At the University’s Clinic for Horses, you will work alongside approximately 30 Veterinarians and a similar number of support staff. Approximately two-third of the Veterinarians are specialists in the various disciplines, or registered equine general practitioners. The remaining one-third consists of interns, residents and PhD candidates. Together we are responsible for the education of veterinary students, provision of clinical services to equids presented from both within the Netherlands as from abroad (including first opinion, referral and emergency cases) and both clinical research and more fundamental research areas of regenerative medicine and reproduction.
