Job DescriptionAssistant or Associate Professor – Pulmonary Toxicology Faculty
Tenure-Track or Non-Tenure track
Colorado State University (CSU) and the University of Colorado School of Medicine (CUSOM) have partnered to create a 4-year branch campus at CSU. This program will be based on an innovative patient-centered curriculum being developed in conjunction with the CUSOM, called the “Trek”. The primary focus of this full-time faculty position is to develop, implement, and teach toxicology at the CSU branch campus in Fort Collins and contribute to the research and/or teaching mission of the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences. Content delivery starts July 2021 with matriculation of an inaugural class and continues with active involvement throughout all four years of the medical education process.
This position is expected to begin at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. Final hiring rank and tenure track consideration are negotiable and will depend on the qualifications and experience of the applicant. The successful candidate should possess a PhD, MD, or DO with expertise in toxicology or related discipline with specialty in pulmonary toxicology. Tenure-track consideration will be given to candidates with a history of tenure-track employment, evidence of sufficient scholarly activity, or other qualifying credentials. Prior experience teaching in a medical school environment is highly desirable. The position will open November 2020 and the initial applicant review will begin as soon as applications are received, and with a target start date in the first quarter of 2021. The position will remain open until filled.
Experience teaching fundamentals of toxicology, pulmonary physiology and pathology, metabolism and disposition of toxic agents, toxicological mechanisms and pathology, risk assessment, and integrating toxicology with community health are preferred skills for the successful candidate. The curriculum is patient-centered and will introduce medical students to core knowledge pertaining to toxicology and impart the skills necessary to develop into a competent physician. The toxicology and pulmonary content will be delivered directly by the toxicology faculty and additional co-educators. The position requires incorporating Toxicology into all aspects of medical education in the following key areas in the Foundation (Basic Sciences) year. The successful candidate will work with the Basic Sciences Director and team to incorporate concepts based on content expertise into all aspects of medical education.
The successful candidate will be hired as a faculty member in the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences (ERHS) within the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at CSU. Accordingly, the position will have options to contribute to graduate and undergraduate education, develop an externally-funded scholarly research program, and to participate in other ERHS departmental service activities.
