The RCVS is looking for a leading lecturer in veterinary anatomy for the Share Jones Lecture.
A lecturer of special eminence in veterinary anatomy is sought for the 2013 Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Share Jones Lecture – a prestigious, biennial award whose recipients give a public lecture on a subject agreed with the RCVS.
Recent lectures have included “Who says you can’t be big and nimble? The fragility of giant land animals”, given in 2011 by John Hutchinson, whose expertise includes the anatomy and locomotion of dinosaurs and crocodiles, and “Sex and regeneration: lessons from nature”, a study of deer antlers presented by Jo Price.
Prof Price said: “It was a great privilege to be asked to deliver the Share Jones Lecture and it was an experience that I will remember as one of the highlights of my career. This lecture provides a unique opportunity for those of us with a deep interest in structure-function relationships to showcase the discipline of veterinary anatomy and inspire the next generation of veterinary scientists.”
Any lecturer who has achieved special eminence in veterinary anatomy is eligible for nomination; RCVS membership is not a requirement.
Nominations will be considered by the education policy and specialisation committee in February, with decisions made by RCVS council in March.
To nominate a candidate for the lectureship, email his or her CV, with a letter of recommendation, to Anne Jermey (email@example.com).
