Now Hiring Core Faculty!

Posted May 6th, 2016 by Larken Bunce

We are seeking one or more experienced herbal educators and clinicians to join our team as our school continues to grow. We are particularly in need of educators with advanced knowledge who are equally comfortable speaking the languages of science and energetics. The ideal candidates would also be equally comfortable in the classroom, clinic and gardens. 

We currently have two core faculty who, along with a number of adjuncts, deliver a little over 1500 hours of curriculum each year. We are looking for one or more educators to take on a significant portion of the course load, contributing their unique knowledge and experience within the context and format of our existing curriculum.

As founding directors, our current core faculty  remain deeply invested in the quality, sustainability, and maturation of our programs. We seek educators who are excited to become similarly invested and ready to dedicate significant energy towards VCIH students and towards our organizational mission as a whole.

Our students are incredibly intelligent and committed, and while diverse in their backgrounds and goals, all hold high expectations of their experience at VCIH. We, in turn, expect faculty to continue learning through self-study and professional development, as well as to learn alongside of and from our students. This is a fantastic environment in which to grow and thrive as a teacher and clinician, while serving an engaged and appreciative student body of 75 and counting.

We practice and teach from an anti-oppression framework and seek to address social and health justice issues through our work. If you feel your voice or perspective is generally unheard or silenced in the field of herbal medicine, we especially encourage you to apply.

Application Deadline:

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, however we would prefer to fill the position by the end of September, 2016.
