The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of the Pacific is pleased to announce an expansion of its faculty and is seeking applicants for a full-time tenure track, 11-month assistant professor position. Desired start date is Fall of 2013/Spring 2014. Applications will be reviewed starting March 15, 2013 and review will be on-going until the position is filled.
The University of the Pacific in Northern California has offered concise programs culminating in an accredited degree in physical therapy for 25 years, and began offering the DPT degree in 2006. The successful candidate will join a stable department of dynamic full-time and adjunct clinical faculty dedicated to preparing our students to be physical therapists and leaders who will have purposeful, meaningful, and positive impacts on health and society.
Current teaching opportunities exist in a variety of areas, particularly foundational sciences, clinical administration, and clinical skills courses (patient care skills, modalities, diagnostic imaging, integumentary physical therapy); however, candidates with expertise in other areas will be considered. In addition to fulfilling and excelling in their assigned teaching responsibilities, tenure-track faculty members must be productive scholars with a commitment to university service.
