Academic Professional Track (Non-Tenure): Open Rank-Instructional

College Station, TX

Texas A&M University

Description
The Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University invites applications for 2 full-time, academic professional track position with a 11-month academic appointment beginning before or by August 1, 2021. Applicants will be considered for the faculty titles of Instructional Assistant, Associate or Full Professor depending on qualifications.

The successful candidates will have an academic home in VIBS and will work collaboratively with VERO-based faculty, members of other disciplines, as well as faculty members located on the College Station campus to administer the 2+2 veterinary curriculum. Applicants must hold a DVM or equivalent degree, and be capable of delivering highly effective, clinically relevant, professional gross anatomy instruction. Preference will be given to applicants that have demonstrated a strong record of excellence in teaching. Documentation of teaching should demonstrate prior responsibility for both course lecture and laboratory teaching, or unique teaching experiences that can be carried forward from clinical veterinary practice. The successful applicant will be expected to devote up to 90% effort to teaching and a minimum of 10% effort to scholarship and academic citizenship. Scholarship may include collaborative research, or scholarship of teaching and learning in his or her area of interest. Documentation of prior productivity in scholarship is helpful for this academic position but not required. The successful applicant will join an active, clinically relevant veterinary anatomy teaching group with expertise in all aspects of veterinary anatomy and a department dedicated to excellence in teaching, service, and scholarship.

Primary teaching responsibilities will be delivery of small animal (dog/cat) and/or large animal (horse, ruminant, pig and chicken) anatomy courses in the first two semesters of the 2+2 curriculum to a small cohort of eighteen veterinary medical students. The 2+2 curriculum is integrated and highly experiential, and those with interest in small-group teaching and active learning are encouraged to apply. The successful applicants will be expected to "cross-over" and teach in other courses to reinforce content related to their subject matter interest across the 2+2 program. Assistance with other courses is anticipated when anatomy instruction can be helpful and/or reinforced.
