Work for us

We are currently recruiting for the following roles:

Ethics Review Panel (multiple roles)

In July 2016 the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) launched an Ethics Review Panel (ERP). The ERP is intended to provide a mechanism for ethics approval for practice-based veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses who wish to undertake research projects outside the scope of an academic or industry context.

The ERP’s remit involves reviewing research projects involving cats, dogs, horses, farm animals, and other species on a case-by-case basis. The Panel will also review sociological studies involving veterinary staff.

We are seeking to appoint at least two veterinary surgeon members of the ERP (to include one farm veterinary surgeon) as well as one lay member, and one RVN member.
