The position will begin July 1, 2020 or shortly thereafter. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have prior experience teaching human gross anatomy to health professional students. The primary responsibility will be to fulfill the department’s obligation for continued excellence in teaching human anatomy in a dissection-based course with a clinical emphasis in an integrated medical curriculum. Ability to contribute to the teaching of related anatomical sciences is desirable but not required (e.g., neuroanatomy, embryology, or histology). Applicants must also demonstrate a strong commitment to empirical scholarship in some area of the anatomical sciences and will be expected to develop and maintain a productive research program with the potential to attract extramural funding. We are especially interested in applications from scholars whose research complements that of the anatomy and histology faculty within the department, which includes a dynamic community of evolutionary morphologists.
