Dell Medical School Faculty

The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking exceptional teaching faculty to help build the Department of Medical Education as a central component of a world-class institution for teaching, research, and clinical care.

As part of The University of Texas at Austin, one of the nation’s leading research universities, the Dell Medical School will pursue innovation in medical education curriculum, the redesign of healthcare delivery, and excellence in healthcare research. It will be the first medical school established in nearly five decades by a member of the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading public and private research universities. An extraordinary commitment of resources, both public and private, has already been made to enable the development and success of the Dell Medical School. The School is partnering closely with the community and regional healthcare providers and payers to provide new models for education, health promotion, healthcare delivery, and clinical care for the community’s underserved population.

The Medical Education faculty will build collaborative relationships and innovative curriculum, utilize leading-edge technology and teaching techniques, and exhibit a genuine interest in the subject matter and the students. In addition to the traditional areas of basic sciences, students will benefit from early clinical experiences and clinician-led instruction on patient communication, clinical reasoning, professionalism, healthcare quality, and the art of being a physician.

  • Anatomy
  • Biochemistry
  • Cell Biology
  • Genetics

  • Physiology
  • Pharmacology

The successful faculty candidate will:

  • possess a doctoral degree from an accredited school
  • be eligible for appointment as a full tenured or untenured associate professor or professor
  • have a substantial record of leadership and achievement in medical education 

Dell faculty must:

  • demonstrate the ability to understand, appreciate, and guide the development of curriculum and effective medical education programs
  • establish productive working relationships with university administrators, faculty, staff, medical students, and alumni
  • effectively support the distinct academic and clinical partnerships
