The King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences (KSAU-HS) is located in Riyadh and houses six colleges. These are the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Public Health and Health Informatics, Applied Medical Sciences, and Nursing. Two satellite KSAU campuses are also located in the cities of Jeddah and Al-Ahsa. The close affiliation of KSAU-HS with the National Guard Health Affairs (NGHA) hospitals, the most advanced medical complex in the region, has enabled the university to enhance its curricula and academic programs and given the university and its students full access to clinical and teaching sites staffed with exceptionally competent health professionals.

Open faculty positions in the Department of Pharmacy Practice: The KSAU College of Pharmacy is seeking applicants from several clinical specialties for nontenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Pharmacy Practice at the assistant, associate, or full professor level. Responsibilities include developing, coordinating, and delivering didactic education; developing and maintaining innovative clinical practice sites at the affiliated, state-of-the-art, 1200-bed National Guard Hospital in Riyadh; and conducting scholarly activity, including collaborative research and publication.

The newly established College of Pharmacy at KSAU-HS employs a U.S.-style innovative Pharm.D. curriculum through a collaborative partnership with the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy. The curriculum is delivered by U.S.-educated and trained faculty/clinicians of diverse nationalities. The curriculum is designed to achieve educational outcomes consistent with ACPE accreditation standards for professional programs leading to the Pharm.D. degree.

Qualified candidates must possess a Pharm.D. degree from an ACPE-accredited institution with a PGY1 and PGY2 residency, fellowship, or equivalent clinical experience. Board certification is preferred.

KSAU-HS offers an excellent salary and benefits package commensurate with education and experience.
