The University of Utah School of Dentistry is accepting applications for career line (non-tenure track) clinical faculty at the assistant, associate or full professor ranks. Rank and track will be determined by the candidate’s experience and qualifications.
We seek accomplished clinicians with the skills, capacities and interests to educate and train an exceptionally talented group of students in a university environment that thrives on innovation and is committed to leading the nation in the transformation of health care.
Qualified candidates should have a DDS or equivalent degree, and have (or be able to obtain) a Utah dental license. We are specifically seeking general dentists to oversee students in our dental clinics and simulation laboratories.
Responsibilities will include educating and mentoring students in the DDS program that provides an integrated curriculum in the foundational sciences. The school has fostered strong interprofessional education and patient care with its partners in medicine, pharmacy, health and nursing. Evidence-based care is integral to all of its programs. Our inter-disciplinary educational forums utilize case analyses in team-based settings. Clinical training occurs within the School of Dentistry, the University Hospital and community health clinic settings.
Applicants must be committed to educating and mentoring dental students to be technically proficient in all aspects of primary oral health care and to serving as role models for compassionate and ethical care of patients.
