The Department of Clinical & Community Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, invites applications for a full-time, clinical track faculty position in the Division of Behavioral & Population Sciences. 

Responsibilities include didactic and clinical teaching of pre-doctoral dental students in community outreach with an emphasis on geriatric dentistry.  Priority will be placed on the management and treatment of medically complex patients while in geriatric rotations, geriatric outreach and multidisciplinary care for mature adults.  Faculty will also be involved in supervision of dental students in pre-doctoral general dentistry clinics and the pre-clinical program.  Administrative duties include managing the daily clinical operations of the state’s only dental clinic within an adult congregate living facility, a small community rotation site, and maintaining calibration and use of clinical and administrative protocols while providing instruction and feedback on student performance.  All departmental faculty are encouraged to participate in and/or lead research activities. 

The Division emphasizes departmental activities that are focused at the community level and the profession’s role in taking responsibility for the population’s oral health, rather than only the oral health of patients who enter the dental care system for direct clinical treatment.  The Division is also research-intensive and faculty conduct research on a broad range of topics.  The department is home to the national administrative center for the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network (NationalDentalPBRN.org).

Applicants must have a DDS/DMD degree and be eligible for a dental license in Alabama. Experience in general dental practice is required, with community/service experience and/or MPH degree preferred.  Participation in intramural faculty practice is available.  The successful applicant will be required to demonstrate innovation and collegiality within the academic environment.  Excellent written and verbal English skills are required.  The search will begin immediately and will end when the position is filled.  A pre-employment background investigation is performed on candidates selected for employment.  Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
