We are looking for an enthusiastic new Radiologist!

You will join a friendly, motivated, and highly qualified imaging team. Five board-certified Radiologists are supported by four residents and a highly trained and extremely capable team of 15 technical staff (who run all CT and MRI acquisitions). Excellent mentoring is offered to new staff, particularly to newly-qualified Diplomates or post-trainees. The applicant will be appointed with the primary focus to be actively contributing to the clinical service and related duties. Our department is physically situated between the Small Animal and Large Animal clinics, which enables efficient communication and a collegial rapport with the other 50-60 boarded specialists in both the hospitals.

Your duties will include radiographic, ultrasonographic, MR, CT, nuclear medicine and fluoroscopic interpretations. This role would suit both small animal trained and small and large animal trained Radiologists. The appointee will play an important role in the exciting future development and expansion of the diagnostic imaging service. We are expanding our already extensive collaboration with the adjacent UMC to facilitate exciting prospects for expansion of our existing state of the art equipment. We also offer exciting possibilities to conduct cutting-edge research, particularly within the Faculty research programmes in "Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells and Cancer" and "Applied Veterinary Research".

Every effort has been made to ensure a proper work/life balance for our diplomates and whilst our residents do most of the weeknight duties, this post will include some compensated weekend and night duties. The University collective agreement allows excellent time off with an average of 35 days (7 weeks!) holiday in addition to public holidays. There is an excellent pension scheme, partially paid parental leave and flexible employment conditions. Our reward package also includes time off clinics for study and research, health insurance benefits and a range of employee discounts.

We have an international staff so English is the dominant language on the work floor and NO Dutch language skills are initially required! Although language courses are available free of charge.

We are open to discussion and are ready to tailor the role to the correct candidate.


You must have a DVM or equivalent degree; a successful completion of a residency in veterinary diagnostic imaging, and eligibility for specialty board certification (ACVR or ECVDI). You should be interested in working in an academic environment, teaching young colleagues and doing research.


You will initially offer a one-year contract that will be extended in case of satisfactory performance. Part-time can be considered. The gross salary is based on experience and qualifications, and ranges from a minimum of €3,475 to a maximum of €6,438 (i.e. salary scale 11 - 14 according to the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities) gross per month for a full-time employment.

Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8 % and a year-end bonus of 8.3 % per year. We offer a pension scheme, collective insurance schemes and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model). More information is available at: working at Utrecht University.

With the right qualifications there is a possibility of becoming a full professor in just a couple of years

A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major societal themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions, Life Sciences and Sustainability.

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has a unique position in the Netherlands. Not only is this the only institution where veterinarians are trained, researchers are also working together on innovative scientific research. In addition, the Faculty provides specialist clinical care in the largest academic veterinary hospital in Europe. Thanks to this position, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is a point of contact for all veterinary matters, both nationally and increasingly internationally. The Faculty employs approximately 900 veterinarians, scientists and support staff and counts 1.500 students.

The Division of Diagnostic Imaging is an integral part of the Department of Clinical Sciences of Companion Animals. The Division performs diagnostics patients from the University Clinics of Companion Animals and for the University Equine Clinic, external patients from practitioners, and animals for research purposes. With 9 faculty members, (including 5 board-certified radiologists), and 15 technical staff. The Division has state-of-the-art facilities including radiography, a 64-slice CT scanner with sliding gantry, ultrasonography (including UTC – quantitative ultrasonographic tissue characterization), a 1.5 Tesla MRI for large and small animals, and SPECT for small animals only. The Division participates in the Faculty research programmes in “Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells and Cancer” and “Applied Veterinary Research” and operates in the wider context of the University-wide Utrecht Life Sciences programme that provides outstanding research opportunities with the University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMCU) Centre for Image Sciences. Current research particularly focuses on neuroimaging, orthopaedics, oncology and more miscellaneous topics in the area of applied veterinary research.

This is a unique opportunity to work in a great team in the wonderful city Utrecht. Utrecht is the beating heart of the Netherlands, positioned only 25 minutes from Schiphol (Amsterdam) International Airport. It is an exciting city with an unparalleled vitality, with world class festivals, modern architecture, trendy shops, and interesting museums. All contained in a beautiful and historic canal lined medieval city center small (or ‘gezellig’) enough to explore on foot.
