Writtle University College is looking to appoint a Lecturer in Animal Science, to deliver high quality and innovative teaching, for our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Animal Science and Animal Management.

Writtle University College has a 164 hectare farm including a farrow to finish pig unit, beef herd and sheep flock. We have research laboratories for animal nutrition, genetics, microbiology and physiology in addition to crop science and postharvest technology. The University College participates in UKRI research programmes and has a long-standing record in applied research and industry training.
