The Department of Neurobiology and Anatomical Sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the Division of Clinical Anatomy.  The Division is a vibrant and collegial group of educator-scholars responsible for teaching the anatomical sciences (gross anatomy, histology, developmental anatomy, and neuroanatomy) to students enrolled in the schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Related Professions.  Faculty members are actively engaged in the design, production and evaluation of new types of teaching materials and other forms of educational scholarship.  The Division has a growing and innovative Ph.D. program in Clinical Anatomy that is training the next generation of educator-scholars in the anatomical sciences.  Applicants must have a doctoral degree with outstanding credentials in teaching the anatomical sciences and have demonstrated excellent scholarship or potential scholarship in educational research.  The successful candidate will play a key role in teaching within the Division and in the expansion of the Ph.D. program.  Preference will be given to candidates with experience in non-didactic teaching methods (i.e. active learning methods).
