The successful candidate will join an integrated group of bioethicists in a Program that is actively engaged in teaching, scholarship, and service. Candidates may enter either the clinical track or tenure track at the appropriate rank depending on experience and qualifications. The position will be supported jointly by the Program in Bioethics and Humanities and the clinical department affiliated with the candidate’s clinical training.

Candidates must have an MD degree or equivalent, have board-certification or eligibility, and be eligible for licensure in Iowa. Candidates should have formal training in bioethics, experience teaching bioethics (including research ethics), and a record of successful publication in bioethics commensurate with level of experience. Institutional experience in research ethics through Institutional Review Board membership or research ethics consultation is recommended, and candidates with a track record in research ethics will be preferred.

Primary responsibilities will include: (1) leadership of clinical and translational research ethics for the Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS) at the University of Iowa; (2) directing a Clinical Research Ethics Course in the ICTS; (3) teaching, and potential leadership within a Bioethics Certificate Program that is being developed; and (4) participation in ongoing educational and service activities of the Program in Bioethics and Humanities. Responsibilities will also include clinical care in the appropriate department.

The CCOM is part of a major research university, combining a vigorous commitment to teaching excellence with recognized leadership in research. The College’s research enterprise is ranked 13th among public medical schools, and its ICTS encompasses all 11 colleges at the University of Iowa and facilitates community partnerships between academic medical centers, local health care providers, and patients throughout Iowa. CCOM faculty collaborate closely with colleagues in other colleges at the University of Iowa, including the other health sciences colleges. The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is a leader in tertiary and primary care.
