Open Position: Postdoctoral Instructor of Anatomy

The primary purpose of the Postdoctoral Instructor of Anatomy position for CHS-Northwest is to perform laboratory instruction in cadaver-based human anatomy, assist the anatomy course director in lecturing and student assessment, and to maintain/develop a research program in collaboration with anatomy faculty. The primary student population served is Doctor of Physical Therapy students, although this position might contribute to anatomy courses for other student populations as required. The Postdoctoral Instructor of Anatomy reports directly to the Chair of DPT-OR, but would collaborate with and be mentored by the full-time anatomy faculty in CHS-Northwest. Potential for teaching and research collaboration would exist beyond CHS-Northwest, for example in Western University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (in California and Oregon). The position is a 12-month, renewable contract. The Postdoctoral Instructor of Anatomy would be expected to devote some time to applying for external research support in collaboration with the faculty mentor.
