We are ranked among the top physical therapy programs in the country. We are seeking candidates with content and practice expertise in community health, musculoskeletal disorders, or neurorehabilitation. Capable, effective teaching in areas of content expertise is expected and occurs within a highly integrated curriculum delivered both on site and in an online hybrid format. Preference given to candidates with a well-conceived research agenda judged to be synergistic with current faculty interests and potential for securing extramural funding.

Successful candidates will be expected to be involved in ongoing curriculum implementation and evaluation; serve on University-wide committees; advise students; and maintain an active research agenda.
