Job responsibilities include teaching pharmacy classes with a flipped classroom approach that incorporates active learning. One successful candidate will teach in pharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics courses, and the other will contribute to basic science instruction in the pharmacy curriculum. Other responsibilities include developing an independent research program within the candidate’s area of expertise and service to the school.  Research areas may include but are not limited to: medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutics, physiological sciences, cancer biology, microbiology, immunology, toxicology or genetics.  Strong consideration will be given to candidates with a record of extra-mural funding or showing exceptional promise to develop a research program.

The Marshall University School of Pharmacy was approved by the Marshall University Board of Governors in 2010, welcomed its first class in 2012, and graduated that first class in May, 2016. In June, 2016, the School was granted full ACPE accreditation and had an 86% first-time NAPLEX pass rate in 2017. In summer 2019, the School will move to a new complex with state-of-the-art studio classroom and research laboratories. The updated facilities include new major equipment (e.g., NMR, GCMS, HPLC, flow cytometer, cell imager) for conducting research. The nearby School of Medicine has a next generation sequencing facility, an imaging facility, an animal care facility, and space for animal research.

Requirements: Ph.D. in a pharmaceutical sciences-related discipline with relevant postdoctoral experience; excellent communication, time management and organizational skills; the ability to work in a multi-disciplinary team.  Candidates must demonstrate a commitment to pharmacy education and research.  Preferred qualifications include teaching experience.
