This position provides tremendous opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and professional development within and across disciplines. The successful candidate will join a team of anatomy educators whose primary responsibilities involve teaching the foundational anatomical disciplines in our integrated medical curriculum. At UMMS, anatomy is taught using a combination of cadaveric dissection, prosection, 3D models, virtual anatomy and simulation technology.

We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic candidate with strong organizational, interpersonal and communication skills who has demonstrated success as an educator in a collaborative environment. Applicants should show evidence of engagement and productivity in the scholarship of Anatomy education by dissemination of their work through peer-reviewed publications or presentations, and by involvement in regional and national level organizations.
