Two Residency and 2 intern positions at Murdoch University, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Perth, Australia for 2018

 

The anaesthesia section at Murdoch is opening up two residency positions (3 years position) in ‘Anaesthesia and Analgesia’ starting in January and June 2018. We are also looking for 2 interns (1 year position) in veterinary anaesthesia, also starting January 2018. The resident applicants should have completed a one year rotating internship or equivalent private practice experience (2 years) in order to be able to get registered with the American or / and European Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia College.

Our team includes ECVAA and ACVAA diplomats, who supervise American or / and European Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia College training programs. Beside the diplomats we have an enthusiastic team of anaesthesia lecturers, technicians, residents and interns (summarizing up to 18 anaesthetists) running a busy small and large animal hospital.

Perth is a great place to live and Murdoch University and is recognised by The Times Higher Education as one of the top 100 universities in the world under the age of 50.

Interested persons should contact Dr. Anthea Raisis, head of the Anaesthesia Section at ‘a.raisis@murdoch.edu.au’ for more information

Are you in an anaesthesia residency training programme? Locum positions are available at Anderson Moores that will give you experience of a large number of cases, and the opportunity to supplement your income.

Regular weekend cover, or occasional weekends or weekdays are available with accommodation provided.

We are a multi disciplinary referral only centre with a large and varied caseload of dogs and cats, carrying out on average 40-45 anaesthetics per week (excluding routine orthopaedic cases).

We see referred cases in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Orthopaedics and Soft Tissue Surgery. We have on site MRI, CT and Fluoroscopy and carry out interventional cardiology as well as more complex procedures such as stenting and emergency surgeries.

We are proactive in our anaesthesia and analgesic protocols with a wide range of modalities and facilities available. We are very efficient and put through a large number of cases, whilst maintaining our commitment to quality of Specialist led care. Our support staff are all fully qualified and we also have an intern programme.

This would be an excellent opportunity for a resident to gain experience of a large number of cases in a short period of time, obtain access to clinical data for research projects and also to earn some extra cash. Weekday anaesthetics are all under the supervision of Boarded anaesthetists and would be suitable for case logs for either ECVAA or ACVA residency programmes, but on call would have telephone advice only.

Anyone interested can contact Rachel Bennett or Karla Borland

This is a 3 year fixed term post.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work on a Arthritis Research UK-funded project entitled – Semaphorin 3A/new target for controlling joint pain?

The Project: Around 10 million people in the UK are affected by joint pain, osteoarthritis (OA) representing the most frequent condition. The project will test the hypothesis that a reduction of semaphorin-3A (sema-3A) expression during joint degeneration leads to uncontrolled local nerve ingrowth and joint pain. The aims of this project are to: (1) determine if chondrocyte-derived sema-3A blocks neurite outgrowth from explants of sensory neurons in vitro, (2) establish if sema-3A plays a role in the development of joint pain using 2 mouse models of OA and genetically modified mice which have no sema-3A in chondrocytes, and (3) determine whether mechanical loading, though physiological exercise or directly applied to the joint, promotes sema-3A expression in the joint to prevent nerve growth and joint pain.

These experiments will determine whether sema-3A could be used as a new strategy for the treatment of joint pain.

The Successful Candidate: We are seeking a highly motivated researcher with a PhD in biological or biomedical science, high quality publications in peer reviewed international journals. An experience in pain behaviours measurements in rodents and/or mouse models of osteoarthritis would be an advantage.

The Setting: The successful candidate will join a collaborative group of researchers in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences Department of the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). The RVC is located in central London with a strong research environment and excellent facilities.  It also benefits from its closeness to other institutions nearby, allowing for interactions and collaborations with a large number of research programmes

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Chantal Chenu (email:cchenu@rvc.ac.uk; tel: +44 (0) 207468 5045).

c. £32,402 per annum inclusive
