Department of Molecular and Cellular Sciences Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Professor of Pathology
Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) is seeking candidates for a Pathology faculty position. The successful candidate should have an MD, DO, or equivalent degree, with board certification in anatomic and/or clinical pathology as well as a passion for teaching medical students. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.
Currently, LUCOM does not provide a specific pathology practice plan. Pathology faculty candidates who are interested in maintaining clinical activity have a unique and exciting opportunity at LUCOM to engage in short-term medical mission work as part of their faculty appointment, working with medical mission organizations to provide and possibly help develop pathology laboratory services at medical mission hospitals around the world.
LUCOM is located in Lynchburg, Va., a small city nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. A recent study by Gallup and Healthways ranked Lynchburg as one of the top ten healthiest, happiest cities in America. Abundant outdoor opportunities, four distinct seasons, the vibrant and growing Liberty University, and a reasonable cost of living all make the Lynchburg area an inviting and family friendly environment.
Liberty University requires that faculty candidates possess a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and express commitment to the mission and educational philosophy of Liberty University. As a Christian osteopathic medical college, LUCOM is committed to the integration of a Christian worldview and faith into all aspects of the curriculum and student learning experience. Consistent with the tenets of osteopathic medicine, we are committed to the holistic (body, mind, and spirit) development of our students professionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
We invite you to explore this exciting opportunity to become part of a relatively new, osteopathic medical school and to help shape an innovative curriculum and educational program with a distinctively Christian foundation and purpose. We seek qualified applicants with a passion for educating, developing, and mentoring exceptional osteopathic physicians who will be servant-leaders in providing patient-centered health care.
All materials will remain confidential. Liberty University and its College of Osteopathic Medicine are keenly interested in diversifying its faculty and strongly encourage women and members of minority groups to apply. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Liberty University complies with federal and state guidelines for nondiscrimination in employment.
