At a time when public health has never been more important, Temple University’s College of Public Health is working to solve health’s complexities for a better tomorrow. As one of the largest colleges of public health in the country, we are home to faculty who specialize in 22 health disciplines to prepare researchers, practitioners, and educators to collaborate across disciplines to understand community needs, create evidence-based solutions, and deliver effective, compassionate care. We invite applications for Non-Tenure Track Instructional Faculty in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program to begin January 2022.

Position. Ideal candidates will have prior instructional academic experience in physical therapy, experience in clinical settings, and strong interpersonal communication skills.  Candidates with relevant clinical experience in inpatient or outpatient settings with expertise in one or more of the following areas are encouraged to apply: cardiopulmonary, acute care, kinesiology/biomechanics, bioethics, and/or biopsychosocial models of care. Candidates with experience in other areas may also be considered. We seek passionate professionals committed to instructing the next generation of physical therapists. Salary and benefits are competitive and commensurate with credentials and experience. Rank is open at the level of assistant, associate, or full professor depending on qualifications.

Qualifications. Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT with a terminal academic degree preferred), eligibility for Pennsylvania licensure, and demonstrated interest or previous instructional experience in a DPT curriculum.  Preferred qualifications include previous experience in education, specialist certification by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, and a record of scholarship.

We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in research and education.  We seek faculty committed to collaborative, interdisciplinary education and research prepared to join us in our commitment toward prioritizing sustainable, inclusive, and anti-oppressive practices.

The Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. We are unlike any other department in the country. Located on a single urban campus in Philadelphia, the Department’s faculty provide instruction in 10-degree programs including athletic training, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, neuromotor science and BS in Health Professions. Additionally, the Department works closely with other professions including public health, nursing, social work, and communication sciences.

The DPT Program. The DPT program enrolls about 165 students taught by 13 full-time faculty with various clinical and research backgrounds who emphasize student learning/development through innovative and evidence-based teaching practices. PT faculty collaborate with faculty in many disciplines and with local institutions including Temple University Hospital System, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Magee Rehabilitation Center and Moss Rehab. Our instructional space is brand new and includes fully equipped smart classrooms and an accessible apartment simulation. The DPT Program hosts an interprofessional pro bono clinic dedicated to meet the needs of uninsured and underinsured members of the North Philadelphia community. This practice venue gives many faculty members a venue to maintain their clinical practice and teach at the point of patient care.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for academic programming and research, the College of Public Health, a CEPH-accredited school of public health, is a constellation of academic units of public health, social work and health profession disciplines, enrolling 4,300 students. The College’s research focuses on social, behavioral, and environmental inquiries, medical/health interventions, and basic science and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and other major funders.  The College has recently launched a new Center focused on Community Engaged Research and Practice. We are harnessing the collective energies of our clinical disciplines through an emerging, innovative framework for interprofessional education.
