Job ID: 21367
Location: CUNY School of Medicine
Full/Part Time: Full-Time
FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
The CUNY School of Medicine (CSOM) was founded upon the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education and is the only medical school in the City University of New York system. Located on The City College of New York campus in Harlem, the mission of the CSOM is to produce competent, broadly educated, highly skilled medical practitioners who provide quality health services to communities historically under-served by primary care practitioners. Our reputation for excellence has earned national acclaim for performance and a broad network of clinical sites for clerkships.
The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences (MCBS) was formed through the merger of several basic science departments and represents one of the four departments in the school (Community Health and Social Medicine, Medical Education, and Clinical Medicine). The department plays a critical role in our mission-driven BS/MD program and Physician Assistant program through the teaching of the basic science curriculum and by conducting extramurally funded research. The research agenda of the current members of the department is centered on neuroscience, microbiology and immunology, cardiovascular disease, and oncology.
MCBS seeks applications for a full time non-tenure faculty position at Clinical Professor rank to teach courses in basic science (e.g. chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, etc.) to medical students. This position represents excellent ground floor opportunities to contribute to the development and growth of a newly expanding mission based medical school and to shape the direction of academic initiatives in the department and the medical school with a long and rich history of recruiting underrepresented populations into medicine, increasing medical services in under-served areas, and increasing the availability of primary care physicians.
Individuals appointed as clinical professors – medical series are experienced practitioners or teachers in their professions or fields of expertise. The responsibilities of the position include teaching (including, in some cases, clinical instruction), and may include research. Clinical professors - medical series are full-time, non-tenure track positions.
Doctoral-level degree in a relevant discipline (biochemistry, molecular biology) or other doctoral-level degree combined with another advanced degree in a relevant discipline.
At least one-year teaching experience in a medical school.
Also, must have demonstrated satisfactory qualifies of personality and character, a record of achievements in his/her profession or field of expertise, and a willingness to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.
CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.

About CUNY School of Medicine
There is a continuing shortage of primary care physicians in this country, creating an urgent need for more family practitioners, general internists, pediatricians and obstetricians/gynecologists in many communities. The shortage of African-American, Hispanic, Native Americans and other underrepresented medical professionals in inner-city areas is particularly acute. Thus, recruiting and training a diverse workforce that represents the diversity of the patients being served in such communities is of utmost importance and ensures health equity across the continuum of care. Over forty years ago, CUNY and City College decided to make a difference by developing the most unique physician and physician assistant training programs in the nation – The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education. Since its founding in 1973, The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, now known as the CUNY School of Medicine/Sophie Davis Biomedical Education Program continues its original mission to recruit underrepresented populations into medicine, increased medical services in underserved areas, and increased the availability of primary care physicians and physician assistants that reflect the divers...ity of our surrounding communities. This mission is currently served with an 85% enrollment rate of students from backgrounds that are Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM; e.g., African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American), greatly exceeding the current U.S. medical school average of 43%. The CUNY School of Medicine encompasses an innovative accelerated BS/MD program that combines a Bachelor of Science degree and an M.D. degree in seven years and a 28-month Physician Assistant Program that leads to a Masters degree in P.A. Studies and eligibility to take the physician assistant national certification examination (PANCE).
