Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine invites applications for a full-time faculty position (open rank) in our newly established College of Osteopathic Medicine in Montana. This is an opportunity to be in on the ground floor of a new endeavor for the Touro University system and the state of Montana. TouroCOM Montana is located in Great Falls, Montana, adjacent to the Rocky Mountain front, and equidistant between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park.

The position is effective July 1, 2024. The successful candidate will have both educational and research experience in Biochemistry. The University places a high priority on teaching excellence and research success with an expectation that the candidate will also be active in their professional field. TouroCOM Montana will enroll 125 students annually. Touro’s new 100000 square-foot state-of-the-art medical school campus houses multiple classrooms, an anatomy lab, library, study rooms, and simulation center. TouroCOM partners with the McLaughlin Research Institute to provide additional opportunities for faculty and student research. TouroCOM operates similar medical school campuses in Harlem, New York and Middletown, New York with each graduating approximately 135 new physicians each year.

The Biochemistry faculty position specifically involves collaborating with faculty on the Harlem and Middletown campuses in the development, organization, and delivery of the curriculum presented simultaneously on all campuses.
