Information about the Department: We are a multi-disciplinary department with responsibilities in instruction, research and continuing education in the disciplines of gross and microscopic anatomy, cell and systemic physiology, pharmacology, and neuroscience. Research in the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) (http://iccm.k-state.edu/) is interdisciplinary and focused on developing novel approaches to extrapolate drug, chemical and/or nanomaterial behavior from in vitro to in vivo systems and across species, with particular emphasis on domestic animals. Diversity and Inclusion: Kansas State University embraces diversity, and promotes inclusion in every sector of the institution. The university actively seeks candidates whose commitments and contributions will advance the University's commitment to the Principles of Community.  Job Description: The successful candidate will maintain a dynamic, extramurally funded research program focused on pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) mathematical modeling. The incumbent will also teach pharmacology courses to professional veterinary and graduate students and mentor graduate students in an area of candidate’s expertise. As part of their duties, this individual will be expected to establish collaborations with researchers affiliated with the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) (http://iccm.k-state.edu/) and the collocated, USDA supported, Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) to develop and implement novel approaches and techniques to advance our understanding of PK-PD interactions, drug residue depletion and antimicrobial resistance in food animals. Required Minimum Qualifications: Assistant Professor: DVM (or equivalent) with relevant research experience and post-graduate training (MS or PhD) in clinical pharmacology and mathematical modeling.

Associate Professor or Professor: DVM (or equivalent) with relevant research experience and post-graduate training (MS or PhD) in clinical pharmacology and mathematical modeling. Teaching experience in pharmacology at the university level, and a record of extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications commensurate with tenure/rank at Kansas State University.
