 Job Description

The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of New England is currently inviting applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor. The position is a 12-month appointment with teaching, scholarship, and service required. Application review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Start date is negotiable. Rank, salary, and faculty track (tenure vs. non-tenure) are commensurate with qualifications.

Qualified applicants are physical therapists with a doctoral degree and clinical expertise in adult neurorehabilitation who hold a US PT license. Preference will be given to candidates with a terminal academic degree (e.g., Ph.D., Ed.D., D.Sc., or D.H.Sc), post-doctoral training, neurologic residency training, ABPTS certification, and/or prior university teaching experience. Successful tenure-track applicants will demonstrate evidence of the skills and commitment necessary to develop a successful, extramurally funded, research and/or scholarship program. Successful non-tenure track applicants, in addition to demonstrating a scholarly area of interest, also will demonstrate the potential to pursue programmatic initiatives aligned with their expertise and experience.

Primary teaching responsibilities include clinical neurorehabilitation and related content in the entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program. Additional teaching responsibilities in areas of clinical or academic expertise, including advising student research, may be assigned or requested, depending on DPT program needs and candidate interest. All department faculty participate in department, college and/or university service.

Department faculty maintain active collaborations within the college and university; with clinicians, researchers, scholars, and service organizations in the local community; and with investigators from around the country. New collaborations are welcome. Abundant teaching and scholarly resources ( ) support faculty endeavors, including a state of the art, 1500 ft2, Motion Analysis Lab (MAL) containing an 8 camera Qualysis System, 3 AMTI Force platforms, a Biodex Isokinetic Dynamometer, a 16 channel Noraxon wireless EMG system, custom designed force transducers for measuring bimanual coordination and precise muscle performance, as well as Labview, Matlab, and Visual3D software licenses. The MAL is managed by a full-time, master’s prepared, biomechanist. A multi-room Sensory and Motor Performance Laboratory contains equipment for quantitative sensory testing (Medoc Neurosensory Analyzer & algometers), diagnostic ultrasound imaging (GE Logiq E), dynamometry, transcranial direct stimulation, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Programs and activities are available to mentor junior faculty in teaching pedagogy, research, and scholarship.
