Internship position in wildlife pathology

We are looking for an enthusiast and dedicated veterinarian with major interest in wildlife pathology to fill a veterinary pathology internship position with strong emphasis on wildlife pathology at the Centre for Fish and Wildlife Health (FIWI) of the University of Bern in Switzerland.

The FIWI is the Swiss national competence centre for wildlife diseases and the candidate is expected to perform necropsies and histological examinations on a great variety of indigenous Swiss wildlife including carnivores, ungulates, rodents, lagomorphs, insectivores, birds and occasionally also bats and amphibians. Diagnostic of predation and other forensic cases are also an integral component of the routine diagnostic. The candidate will be supervised by an ACVP board certified veterinary pathologist and by an ECZM diplomate in wildlife health population health. The FIWI is a very dynamic diagnostic and research centre with multiple ongoing international collaborations, where the trainee will have the opportunity to fully explore his/her growth potential and talent for veterinary pathology and wildlife health in general.

The main goal of this training position is to allow the trainee to acquire basic skills in veterinary pathology and a major exposure to wildlife pathology. This position is also geared to provide the necessary experience to apply for a formal ECVP residency position in veterinary anatomic pathology including that offered by the FIWI in wildlife pathology. This is a non-renewable 12-months position, meaning that at the end of the internship the trainee is expected either to continue her/his training in veterinary pathology entering into a residency programme (in house or elsewhere), or alternatively pursue a different career in veterinary medicine.

The ideal candidate is a diplomate in veterinary medicine fluent in both spoken and written German and English languages, with great communication skills and teamwork spirit. Additional knowledge of French and/or Italian is not a condition but would be an advantage given the multilinguistic characteristics of Switzerland and necessary interactions with submitters.

The position will start on February 1st, 2018. The salary (PhD equivalent) will be calculated according to cantonal salary scales basing on the experience and on the age of the candidate.

If interested, please send a career motivation letter along with your curriculum vitae and two recommendation letters no later than September 30, 2017. All documents should be sent by email to:
