The Ohio State University College
of Dentistry’s Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental
Anesthesiology seeks a dentist anesthesiologist to join the full- time faculty
as a tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor, or a clinical track
Assistant or Associate Professor-Clinical in the dental anesthesiology section.

in providing sedation and general anesthesia for all types of dental surgery
for pediatric, adult, and geriatric patients, including ambulatory,
non-hospital based orthognathic and cosmetic surgery.
The successful candidate must also
have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and a desire to create
an environment that promotes collegiality and collaboration among members of
various education, research, and service communities. A willingness to serve as
a role model and advocate for the ideals of professionalism, diversity, and
high ethical standards in a health science educational setting is essential.
The responsibilities of the
position include pre-doctoral and resident education with an emphasis in
anesthesiology and pharmacology, as well as participating in the school’s
intramural practice. Candidates must be board certified or an active candidate
for certification, and must be eligible for licensure in Ohio. Qualified candidates may pursue a dual
appointment in the Department of Anesthesiology at The Ohio State University
Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC), which includes the opportunity to practice in
the hospital’s main operating rooms.
As a school that is committed to
the dental profession, faculty members in the division are engaged in funded
basic and/or clinical research. Candidates must demonstrate a strong desire to
conduct or participate in research to complement their teaching. An advanced
degree (M.S. or Ph.D.) in an area that is directly related to anesthesiology is
desired, but not required.
The Ohio State University College
of Dentistry is the fourth largest public dental school in the United States
and it is the only public dental school in Ohio. The college is divided into ten divisions or
academic units with all major ADA-recognized dental specialties represented.
The anesthesiology section offers one of the nation’s oldest and most highly-regarded
training programs in Dental Anesthesiology, and it enjoys excellent working
relationships with the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery section and other
specialty programs within the college.
In the near future, the college
will benefit from a new facility that will include an accredited ambulatory
surgery center, creating additional educational and practice opportunities for
the section. The college is physically connected to and professionally
affiliated with the OSUWMC. This relationship provides substantial and
significant prospects for inter-professional education, research, and patient
care initiatives among the seven health science colleges on campus.
Evaluation of applications will
begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Salary and
academic rank are commensurate with qualifications. Applicants should provide a
personal statement delineating qualifications and career goals, a curriculum
vitae, and three professional references.
