The department also runs a canine semen bank and regularly exchanges chilled and frozen semen.

The duties of the Small Animal Reproduction Clinician will be to carry out – mostly in the presence of students – the consultations (pathology of the genital organs, obstetrics and neonatology, assisted reproduction) as well as routine surgical procedures on the reproductive system (castrations, ovariectomies and ovario-hysterectomies, surgery of the mammary-glands) or, if desired, more complex surgical procedures. The Clinician will be involved in the clinical research and in the scientific publications. He/she will participate in department meetings and journal clubs.

Expected skills : knowledge of veterinary practice, particularly in the field of reproduction. Proven skills in gynaecological surgery. A level of veterinary specialist (ECAR or ACT diplomate or with more than 3 years experience in reproduction), or board eligible would be ideal for this position, but junior clinicians may send their application. Knowledge of French language, even at a basic level, will be appreciated but is not mandatory.

The salary offered will depend on the candidate’s experience.

PhD studentship in canine embryology-RVC

This 3-year PhD studentship project aims to refine our previous and recent ground-breaking work on dog IVM in order to define the fundamental processes that regulate canine oocyte nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation and the critical processes that affect the oocyte during the post-ovulatory (oviductal) period. Further, the project will optimize key steps in canine ART to enable the techniques to be used routinely within our wider and future translational programs.
