The Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University seeks a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer for full time instruction in our DVM curriculum. The successful candidate will play a leadership role teaching in the pre-clinical classes, particularly in Foundation Course I, with additional contributions to other courses, and to college curricular processes and initiatives. Foundation Course I, Animal Body, is a multidisciplinary, problem-based learning anatomy course that covers the animal body at the levels of systems, compartments, and spatial and structural organization; organ systems at the tissue, cellular and organelle level; and body features relevant to non-invasive and invasive diagnostic procedures. Attention is given to body functions supported by anatomical features. Learning occurs in the classroom, tutor groups, and in wet and dry labs, and uses technological innovations developed by faculty in collaboration with our Educational Support Services staff.

Qualifications include a DVM with clinical, residency, or research experiences rooted in anatomy (such as imaging, pathology or surgery) and a passion for teaching; and/or a PhD in a biomedical science field related to anatomy; research or teaching experience in applied medicine.

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

• Supporting instruction in Foundation Course I, including lecturing, providing laboratory-based instruction, facilitating small group learning, and assisting with development and management of gross and histology laboratories. • Service on the Curriculum Design Group for Foundation Course I, contributing to course oversight, updates, assessment writing, and grading. This may include serving as the Foundation Course Leader on a rotating basis. • Serving as course leader for a 3-credit anatomy distribution course. (20% effort) • Contributing to teaching in other courses based on college needs, and candidate expertise, such as Foundation Course III (Function and Dysfunction - Physiology). • 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.
