We invite applications for one or more faculty positions from those interested in an academic career in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM).

The OMM position is a junior to mid-career faculty appointment and will be in the Centers for Integrative Health (CIH) in the Department of Family Medicine. The CIH serves patients throughout UCSD Health. This faculty member will provide 100% effort comprised of direct patient care across select faculty primary care offices and inpatient units throughout UCSD Health (depending on Department need), teaching medical students and residents in OMM care, and practice-based research and other scholarly activity. Proportions of these activities will be determined by faculty interest and funding availability.

The appropriate series and appointment at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level will be based on the candidate’s qualifications and experience. Position may be full-time or part-time subject to funding.
