Tufts University School of Medicine is seeking to fill a full-time (12 month) faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the Department of Medical Education (DME).

Applicants with experience in small group, problem-based learning and other interactive teaching strategies are preferred. The successful candidate will be expected to engage in innovative scholarship in medical education and to be active in student advising/mentoring and serving on committees.
