Veterinary Department Internships

The Sealcentre Pieterburen, the Netherlands, has an exciting opportunity for two Veterinary Interns to work in our Veterinary and Seal Care Departments. Both positions last one year, one is scheduled to start in October 2020, and the other in April 2021. Previous marine mammal or wildlife experience is a plus.

The Sealcentre’s Veterinary Department includes two full time veterinarians and two veterinary interns. We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic candidate who will join our team and will work closely in a team setting with staff and volunteers to assist with all aspects of veterinary care and husbandry of sick and injured seals. Other responsibilities include but are not limited to: daily care of animals, transport of live/dead marine animals, maintenance of daily nutritional and medical records, sampling for various research projects, and data entry. Additional duties and projects may be assigned by staff.

The interns must be veterinarians or veterinary students. They are required to find their own transportation to Pieterburen and we provide housing (gas, electricity, water and internet included), meals, and health insurance. These positions are unpaid. The interns should expect to be scheduled to cover a variety of shifts including weekdays, nights, weekends, and holidays.

The ideal candidate should be mature and motivated, and possess a strong work ethic and excellent observational and communication skills (a fluent English level is required). Due to Visa requirements we are currently only able to accept applicants with a European passport. The deadline for applications is June 30th 2020. Interested applicants should submit a copy of the CV, an intention letter, and two recommendation letters. Note that the application materials should be in English. Applications and questions should be submitted to vet@zeehondencentrum.nl indicating in the subject VETERINARY INTERN 2020/2021.
