Senior Clinical Scholarships (RESIDENTS) In Bovine and Small Ruminant Management (With masters in veterinary medicine)

Senior Clinical Scholarships

The farm animal team at the University of Glasgow, School of Biodiversity One Health and Veterinary Medicine contains an exciting mix of clinical vets and researchers. We are seeking competent veterinary graduates with farm animal experience to contribute to and learn from our diverse and dynamic team. The successful applicants will enrol as post-graduate students to undertake a clinical residency training and research Masters degree, gaining both clinical expertise and research skills in the chosen area.

Throughout the four-year program, residents will have increasing responsibility for the delivery of routine and problem-solving farm investigation visits (dairy and beef or sheep), primary care of individual animals (on farm and referred) and teaching veterinary students. They will study towards a Diploma with either the European College of Bovine Health Management (ECBHM) or European College of Small Ruminant Health Management (ECSRHM) and complete a Masters degree in Veterinary Medicine (MVM) through clinical research. Potential projects include:

  • ECBHM: dairy calf health and colostrum management in ‘Cow with Calf’ dairy systems and artificial dairy rearing systms.
  • ECBHM: the impact of Q-Fever (Coxiella burnetii) infection in dairy herds.
  • ECSRHM: development and testing of a small ruminant digital clinical decision-making aid for para-vets in sub-Saharan Africa.

Please state your preferred project and rank your reserve projects in order.

The initial stipend is £26017 (PAYE / TAX exempt), increasing to £27717 by the fourth year plus £1500 CPD allowance per annum.
