Open-Rank Non-Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Human Anatomy and Physiology

The Temple University College of Public Health, an interdisciplinary college devoted to an innovative educational and research environment that brings a transdisciplinary perspective of health, wellness, and social welfare, invites applications for non-tenure track faculty members to teach human anatomy and physiology courses.

Position and Qualifications. We seek enthusiastic professionals with a doctorate in a related area. Individuals with a master’s degree with teaching experience are welcome to apply. A clinical background grounded in palpation of anatomical structures, experience in teaching synchronous and asynchronous online courses, and a strong record of teaching at the undergraduate level is highly desirable.  In addition, specialty certifications will be beneficial.  Primary teaching assignment will be undergraduate anatomy and physiology lectures and labs with possibility for teaching other undergraduate and graduate courses in Kinesiology and clinical disciplines, including Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Nursing. Responsibilities may also include serving as anatomy and physiology laboratory coordinator. Experience with laboratory safety procedures, development and updating chemical hygiene plans, and budget management is preferable.

The Department of Kinesiology. The Department is home to a diverse body of 1,300 students in undergraduate and graduate programs in pre-health professions, kinesiology, exercise and sport science, and athletic training. As part of the College’s emphasis on interdisciplinary education, the Departments of Kinesiology and Physical Therapy collaborate on a joint MS and PhD in Neuromotor Science. Kinesiology faculty members actively collaborate with research and clinical colleagues in the College of Public as well as the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University Hospital, Shriners Hospital, and the Department of Bioengineering. The Department's facilities have been under a major renovation to expand research and classroom facilities. This includes the recently completed NeRVE (Neuromotor Rehabilitation and Virtual Environment) laboratories, consisting of seven laboratories housing physical therapists, neuroscientists, biomechanists, engineers, mathematicians and

kinesiologists dedicated to the understanding of human movement and associated neurological disorders. Classrooms for teaching anatomy and physiology are being expanded and updated.
