Twelve-month tenure-track or clinical faculty position for an assistant or associate professor to teach in the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program and the Doctor of Athletic Training Program in the School of Rehabilitation Sciences.  

This faculty line will constitute the fourth full-time faculty member in the growing and vibrant Athletic Training programs.  The School of Rehabilitation Sciences houses graduate programs in Athletic Training (MSAT & DAT), Occupational Therapy (MSOT), Speech Pathology (MS-SLP) and Physical Therapy (DPT).  The MSAT program will admit its seventh class of students in Summer 2022 and is preparing for a CAATE accreditation site visit in the spring of 2023.

Preferred start date is August 2022.  Start date is negotiable, but no later than January 2023. 

The vision for the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at Moravian University is to develop collaborative, interprofessional graduate programs in Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech-Language Pathology within a single academic unit.  By combining an entrepreneurial spirit and a unique curricular structure, students and faculty are able to engage with one another across disciplines in a truly interprofessional educational environment modeled toward best practices in the clinical setting.  This collaborative environment is designed to foster student learning and engagement while avoiding the traditional discipline-specific silos that impede learning.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • The individual filling this position may serve as Director of Clinical Education for the MSAT program (based on qualifications and interest in this role).  
  • The individual will primarily teach in the MSAT program with the addition of teaching one to two courses per year in the DAT program (based on area(s) of expertise).  
  • Teaching in the MSAT program will likely include anatomy, therapeutic modalities, nutrition, upper extremity (elbow) and lower extremity (gait) assessment, and either therapeutic exercise & manual therapy or evaluation & treatment of the spine.  
  • Both graduate Athletic Training programs allow for professional mentoring, leadership opportunities, and collaborative teaching opportunities.  
  • Faculty in the AT programs are also expected to collaborate in team-teaching within the program(s), participate in interprofessional education across the School, and assist in all aspects of program design, development, implementation, assessment, and administration.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Earned academic doctorate (e.g. PhD, EdD, DSc) or doctorate degree in Athletic Training (DAT) or related field (e.g. DPT)
  • Eligibility for PA licensure as an Athletic Trainer
  • Minimum of five years, full-time clinical experience
  • Specialized training and clinical practice experience in manual therapy, including joint mobilization and manipulation, and/or spine are preferred.
  • Preference will be given to individuals with teaching experience, clinical instruction experience, and experience with the CAATE accreditation process
