The Central Michigan University College of Medicine (CMED) is seeking two highly qualified faculty members with expertise and teaching experience in areas of: 1) behavioral science, and 2) biochemistry and/or pathophysiology. Successful candidates will join our Foundation Science Department and participate in the delivery of an innovative and integrated medical school curriculum. CMED faculty work as part of an interdisciplinary team of basic sciences and clinical faculty and collectively assume the role of ongoing development, review and revision of the curriculum.

Assistant, Associate or Professor rank will be determined based on the candidates’ credentials.

Our teaching faculty engage in research in their areas of basic science expertise and collaborate in medical education research. The college recognizes scholarly activity including: the advancement of new theories, practices and principles; the expansion and interpretation of existing ideas; the development of educational resources; more traditional forms of research; or the improvement and application of knowledge, especially in new settings. CMU College of Medicine encourages applicants from historically underrepresented populations, veterans, women, and other minorities to apply.
