The department of Health Sciences at Stetson University invites applications for a visiting assistant professor position beginning January 2021. The position is a full-time, 9-month appointment that spans January 2021-May 2022 (3 semesters), with the possibility of renewal. In 2018, an $18 million gift for the enhancement of health and science education spurred new thinking about partnerships, interdisciplinarity, and plans for a new building (slated for occupancy in May 2022). It is an exciting time for health and science education at Stetson University.
