Open Faculty Position: Now Accepting Applications

We are recruiting an open rank, tenure track/tenured faculty member with expertise in clinical ethics consultation to begin as early as September 2024. This position is within The Department and Institute of Bioethics and Health Humanities (IBHH), housed in the School of Public and Population Health at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.


In April of 1970, both The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Science at Houston and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston sponsored the symposium "Humanism in Medicine" that would help shape and give impetus to the new institute that would emerge at UTMB in 1973. This new institute would be dedicated to medicine and the humanities.
