Qualifications include a Ph.D. in a biomedical science field related to physiology, including research or teaching experience; and/or a DVM with passion for basic science, and advanced training in physiology (such as graduate level coursework in physiology or a related field or some specialty training in Emergency, and Critical Care, Internal Medicine or Anesthesia).

Specific and general responsibilities of the successful teaching track candidate include:

• Providing instruction in Foundation Course III, including lecturing, supporting laboratory-based learning, and facilitating small group learning.

• Service on the Curriculum Design Group for Foundation Course III, contributing to course oversight, updates, assessment writing, and grading. This may include serving as the Foundation Course Leader on a rotating basis.

• Contributing to teaching in other courses based on college needs, and candidate expertise, such as Foundation Course I (The Animal Body).

• Contributing to college curricular processes and initiatives, such as the curriculum committee, syllabus committee, curricular review committees, and admissions committee, as well as other committees, based on college needs and candidate expertise.

• Pursuing ongoing professional development to advance the understanding of evidence-based educational practices and continually improve teaching quality. Salary, rank, and title will be commensurate with academic credentials and experience.
