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. For a tenured appointment, the successful candidate must demonstrate a record of research, scholarly works, and teaching excellence.

Qualified candidates must possess a DDS/DMD degree from an institution that is accredited by CODA (the Commission on Dental Accreditation), and they must have completed a minimum of two years in a dental anesthesiology residency program accredited by CODA or the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology. Other requirements include extensive experience 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.  Application materials or inquiries should be sent electronically to Dr. Gregory Ness, Chair of the Search Committee, at osudentistryrecruitment@osu.edu.
