Langford Vets, University of Bristol is seeking to recruit two senior clinical anaesthetists to primarily work within the University’s state of the art Small Animal Hospital.

We are the largest referral centre in the south-west of England and consequently have a busy and varied caseload of around 3,500 small animal anaesthetics a year. The clinical team is friendly, mutually supportive, and recognises the contributions of each discipline to the overall success of patient care. Along with clinical anaesthesia we provide an acute and chronic pain service and support the intensive care unit in the management cases which require invasive or non-invasive ventilation. The hospital is equipped to a very high standard, and we have dedicated anaesthesia ultrasound and endoscopy units.

Along with the small animal hospital we support the farm animal practice when cases require general anaesthesia, and provide the anaesthesia service to the university’s Translational Bio-Research Centre, primarily with large animal (pig and sheep) experimental models.

The department currently comprises 5 senior anaesthetists, 3 residents enrolled in an ECVAA training program and 6 anaesthesia nurses. The successful candidate would be expected to contribute to the on-call rota and participate in small group and individual under- and post-graduate student teaching on clinics.

Approximately 10% of time will be rotated off clinics including 10 days a year available for CPD along with 33 days of annual leave (including bank holidays).

The position would suit an ECVAA or ACVAA diplomate or a candidate who had completed a residency within either college. It would be possible to increase the proportion of off clinics time for applicants who are preparing for examinations.

The Langford campus is situated 10 miles south of Bristol in a lush valley on the edge of the Mendip hills. Bristol and its environs are arguably the best place to live in the UK, with a vibrant local food scene, a huge range of cultural attractions and
amazing countryside with easy access to hills, ancient woodlands, rivers and the beautiful beaches of the South West and Wales.

Title: Post-Doctoral position about the statistical improvement of the behavioral diagnosis of pain in cats, sheep, pigs, and cattle

Supervisor: Full Professor Stelio Pacca Loureiro Luna

Host institution: Department of Veterinary Surgery and Animal Reproduction, School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, São Paulo State University (Unesp), Botucatu, São Paulo State, Brazil

Deadline to application: October 10th, 2021.

This is a 12-month post-Doctoral position to develop the project ‘statistical improvement of the behavioral diagnosis of pain in cats, sheep, pigs, and cattle’ supervised by Professor Stelio Pacca Loureiro Luna at the School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, São Paulo State University (Unesp), Botucatu, São Paulo State, Brazil.

Our group validated behavioral pain scales in cats, sheep, pigs, and cattle in the last decade. Although they have the appropriate discriminatory capacity, we identified scores around the rescue analgesia cut-off point corresponding to the uncertain diagnostic zone for indication of intervention analgesia. This finding may be related to the asymmetry of the importance attributed to the different behavioral scores. We hypothesize that including statistical weights as correction factors guarantees the symmetry of the pain behaviors assessed in these scales. Therefore, our aims are to (i) investigate the effects of statistical weights on the discriminatory capacity of these pain scales and (ii) to facilitate the access and use of these improved scales in apps for smartphones and computers.

Candidates must have a degree in veterinary medicine, animal science, or biology and have a master’s and a doctorate in animal behavior and pain assessment in animals. Eligible candidates must have in-depth knowledge of 1) statistical tools used for validating pain assessment instruments, 2) statistical modeling for psychometric data validation, and 3) programming and use of ‘R’ software.

The role of the selected candidate will be to improve the statistical modeling of the previously validated pain scales. The post-doc student candidate will develop the statistical weights for each behavior used in each pain scale based on parameters estimated by binomial and multiple multinomial logistic regression models. We expect the post-doc student to conduct a critical ethological analysis of the weights, judging whether the behaviors with greater weight in the mathematical model corroborate greater pain intensity in practice. Furthermore, the post-doc student must conduct a psychometric validation of the discriminatory capacity of the scales with the weights and compare them with the original scales.

The post-doc student will receive a post-Doctoral fellowship from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). The grant value is R$ 7,373 (approximately U$ 1,361 or € 1,172) per month and a research fund, equivalent to 10% of the fellowship’s annual value, which should be spent on related items to the project.

The post-doc student will participate in other activities and projects organized by the Animal Pain team coordinated by Stelio Luna at the same institution.

Candidates should send their curriculum to stelio.pacca@unesp.br until October 10th, 2021.

Clinical teaching in small animal and equine veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia

Due to the fact that we are increasing the number of students every year, these positions can transfer to academic positions (50% teaching including clinical teaching and 50% research) within 2 to 3 years of clinical duty depending on the candidate profile, experience and interest.

The job is focused on clinical teaching 4th and 5th year students in the veterinary teaching hospital and quality service for the clientele.

We are looking for an ECVAA (or ACVAA) diplomate or a finishing resident. Time off to prepare the exam can be arranged.

The job is full time and starting date is adaptable. Salary upon qualifications and experience, the positions are eligible for 10 weeks of vacation per year.

A transition to an academic position 50% teaching and 50% research is possible upon bilateral interest and candidate profile.

French speaking is preferable but English is fine too.

The caseload is quite diverse (interesting orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, imaging and internal medicine diagnostic procedures in small and large animals including a bit of bovine, spay and neuter clinic with a lot of cats, a great number of pocket pets…). The anesthesia service is largely involved in pain management on hospitalized patients of all species and we are waiting to convert it an inpatient/outpatient clinic once the team expands. The daily schedule is quite busy but out of hour-duty is only in equine anesthesia (less than one weekend a month. The anesthesia-surgery suites in small animal and equine have been redesigned to optimize caseflow, patient care and ergonomic work.

The Teaching Hospital is located on the outskirt of the city in a beautiful landscape along the river l’Erdre. Active city life and beautiful countryside living are minutes away. A 40-minute drive or less will take you to the Atlantic Ocean. The area is rich of its history and touristic attractions.

About the organization

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.

The Department Clinical Sciences (DCS) is part of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and includes a training institute, research institute and a fully equipped academic veterinary teaching hospital, the  ‘Universiteitskliniek Utrecht’. The staff are dedicated to providing excellence in patient care and are responsible for daily clinical supervision and teaching for veterinary students during their Master’s rotations. Tenured staff combines an active role in patient care and (pre-)clinical teaching with involvement in research projects that are embedded in one of the focus themes (including locomotion, regenerative medicine, oncology and genetics).

The university clinic boasts a large fully equipped small animal hospital with six ORs, an ECVECC run ICU and medium care unit, and busy medical and surgical services (including orthopaedics, neurology, cardiology, dentistry, oncology, but also behavioural consultations, dermatology and ophthalmology). Immediately neighboring the small animal clinic, the university complex also comprises a busy equine hospital with more than 100 box stalls, an OR suite with four ORs including a dedicated OR for standing procedures, a 24/7 neonatal foal ICU (in season) and a 24/7 emergency referral clinic as well as an ambulatory equine service.

The Diagnostic Imaging Department supports both equine and small animal clinics, and this department alone sees over 2,000 patients requiring sedation or anaesthesia annually. This department also boasts a 1.5T MRI and 64-slice CT scanner, scintigraphy, state-of-the-art digital x-ray and ultrasonography, as well as an angiography suite for interventional cardiology procedures. Annually in the small animal hospital alone approximately 13,000 outpatient consultations take place and over 3,500 anaesthetics are performed. The equine hospital performs approximately 400 elective procedures, 80-100 exploratory laparotomies, and 100 standing CTs annually, with patients from within the Netherlands and abroad.

The hospital’s anesthesiology team supports both the small animal and equine clinics and performs all sedations and general anaesthetics needed for diagnostic imaging and surgical procedures as well as radiotherapy, giving staff the opportunity to truly work across the breadth of their specialty. The team consists of two European specialists in anaesthesiology (Dip.
