As part of an exciting new initiative, Bristol Veterinary School is seeking to recruit a dynamic research-active faculty member in Production Animal Welfare Science as one of three new academic positions focused on our John Oldacre Centre for Sustainability and Welfare in Dairy Production and our Centre of Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) Poultry Facility.

The new John Oldacre and CIEL Research Centres offer opportunities for the development of an animal welfare and health research programme that capitalises on population level big data generated by the centres.

Both facilities can provide automatically and remotely collected data on behaviour, welfare, health, nutrition, productivity and environment, and allow prospective and cross-sectional cohort studies of dairy cattle and poultry.

A deep understanding of animal behaviour and its links to welfare will play a crucial part in exploiting this new data stream.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to: understanding what constitutes and predicts resilience in livestock; developing new measures of animal welfare, including those that can be automated for use in situ; investigating the effects of early experience including epigenetic processes on phenotypic development; characterising the concept of resilience in terms of production animal welfare and health; investigating social dynamics and their impact on health, welfare and productivity; and evaluating societal, ethical and economic trade-offs in renewed intensification of livestock production driven by human population growth and concerns about global food security.

You will have a strong track record of publication and grant funding success in animal welfare and behaviour and will be expected to develop and consolidate a research group, forge collaborations with colleagues in BVS, the wider University, and externally, teach on the School’s undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses, and supervise postgraduate research students.

Appointment will be at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor. Please refer to the relevant job descriptions (Lecturer/Senior Lecturer or Reader/Professor) for further information.

You will be based at Bristol Veterinary School on the University of Bristol’s Langford campus, within the Faculty of Health Sciences.

Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Richard Hammond, Head of School, Bristol Veterinary School, Tel: 0117 928 9638, email:

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
