Working Title Pharmacology Educator - Assistant Professor of Pharmacology Number of Vacancies 1 Location Rio Grande Valley Division/Organization Division of Health Affairs Appointment Period for Non-Tenure Position Tenure Status Non Tenure Track FTE 1.0 Scope of Job

The Department of Molecular Science at the UTRGV SOM is located in Edinburg, TX, and seeks to fill one open position with a highly qualified faculty member to teach pharmacology primarily within the pre-clerkship curricular years of the MD program. The position is a full-time, non-tenure track, 12-month appointment, with renewal of appointment on an annual basis contingent on satisfactory performance and budgetary availability. The UTRGV SOM offers a competitive salary and a highly comprehensive benefits package. This is a wonderful opportunity for an outstanding academic pharmacologist who is enthusiastic about teaching and education, to contribute to a new and growing medical school with an extremely dynamic environment and culture.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D., M.D., Pharm.D., or equivalent and should have demonstrable expertise in Pharmacology, especially in its teaching as a basic science discipline. Additionally, the desire and flexibility to integrate instruction across other disciplines within a fully integrated curriculum, along with the ability to work collegially within an interdisciplinary team of other clinical/basic science educators would be considered an asset. All candidates with an enthusiasm for teaching and those with prior teaching experience in a health profession related environment are encouraged to apply; however, prior teaching experience in an LCME-accredited medical school would be considered extremely desirable. This position has a full-time instructional mandate, and the recruited candidate must be committed to excellence in the teaching and mentoring of first- and second-year medical students, in addition to teaching within other graduate programs offered by the School of Medicine. The present MD curriculum at the school is of a hybrid nature, designed around the Problem Based Learning (PBL) modality, while also employing traditional lecture-based instruction.
