The College of Pharmacy at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is excited to expand its Pharm.D. program to onsite instruction and training at the College’s new distance campus in Kearney, Nebraska. As part of this exciting growth the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is recruiting for an open-rank faculty position with expertise and experience in teaching undergraduates and/or professional degree students. The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is based at the main UNMC campus in Omaha and is composed of 14 faculty with teaching interest across medicinal chemistry, drug delivery, pharmaceutics, biophysics, and the wider pharmaceutical sciences. The appointed faculty will be based in the Douglas A.

Outstanding candidates are sought with experience teaching professional and undergraduate students in the pharmaceutical sciences in person and remote with a Ph.D. in any area of the pharmaceutical sciences and/or Pharm.D. Candidates with prior experience as faculty in a U.S. college of pharmacy will be prioritized.

Application requirements are as follows:
