Medical Educator Faculty Position, non-tenure teaching track

The Department of Pharmacology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) seeks applications for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position in medical education. The successful candidate will be capable of developing and delivering content for the pre-clerkship medical student curriculum with additional responsibility for oversight of interdisciplinary pre-clerkship courses. Experience teaching pharmacology, physiology, and/or immunology is required. Educators with experience in programmatic assessment as well as instructional modalities that incorporate interactive learning, team-based, problem-based, or case-based learning preferred. Ability to work with clinician educators and educators trained as basic scientists to develop interdisciplinary curriculum content is essential.

Educators hired on the teaching-track are expected to earn outstanding teaching evaluations, engage with education leaders at other medical schools, and develop disseminated scholarship related to education to secure future promotion. Candidates must have a doctoral degree (MD or PhD). This appointment will be made at an academic rank commensurate with experience. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
