We are seeking a bioethicist / applied ethicist with teaching and scholarly expertise in applied philosophy within the health sciences.
The Department of Population Health Sciences includes faculty from social sciences, humanities, and public health disciplines; interdisciplinary collaboration is highly valued. Department faculty pride themselves on their involvement across campus and their desire to continuously improve our community. ACPHS boasts one of the longest-running pharmacy programs in the country, with the last 20 years characterized by continuous expansion and investment in additional academic programs, including the CEPH-accredited BS in Public Health.
ACPHS is committed to building and sustaining an equitable and inclusive work environment where cultural diversity is celebrated and valued.

We have no current need for business ethics. Candidates will support existing departmental teaching needs in upper-level courses, which may include Bioethics, Healthcare and Human Values for pharmacy students, and Research Ethics for graduate students. Candidates may also help improve both our medical humanities minor and our campus gen ed requirements. Within the BS Public Health program, you will engage students in the classroom, but may also support independent study and capstone students, and mentor students, some of which in the past have led to student and collaborative publications.
Service: Candidates will be expected to make appropriate contributions in the areas of service. This may include service to: the PHS department; faculty/administrative committees; undergraduate advising; student organizations; professional organizations; and communities outside ACPHS.
