Anatomy Faculty (open rank)

The Central Michigan University College of Medicine (CMED) is seeking to hire a full-time (12-month) Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Anatomy to join our Foundational Sciences Department faculty to teach Anatomy as part of our integrated curriculum design. The position is open track (either non-tenure or tenure-track) and rank; Assistant, Associate, and Professor rank will be considered depending on credentials.

The successful candidate will work closely with two anatomy faculty members to coordinate lab content as part of a cross-disciplinary and inquiry-based medical school curriculum that includes case-based and team-based learning. Duties include working collaboratively to prepare cadaveric prosections and student lab activities, instructing students in weekly lab sessions and participating in multidisciplinary facilitation of group sessions and/or lectures.

Scholarly activities will be appropriate to the track. For non-tenure track, this is primarily a teaching position with expectations for some scholarly activity and committee service. A tenure-track successful candidate is expected to have a promising research program that would support seeking external funding opportunities, in addition to teaching and service.

The start date is negotiable.

CMU College of Medicine encourages applicants from historically underrepresented populations, veterans, women, and other minorities to apply.
