Faculty Position at the University of Southern California

 

The Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at USC invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate level. The faculty member is expected to establish an independent and extramurally funded research program of outstanding quality in an area closely related to biokinesiology. The focus of biokinesiology is understanding the biological bases of both healthy and disordered human movement; this includes how the human body adapts to growth and experience as well as to injury, disease, and aging within our society and health care systems.  In addition to research, the faculty member will be expected to teach in the DPT and/or PhD programs and to contribute to faculty and USC governance.

The Division has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion in scholarship, teaching, and service. In the last two years, our faculty, staff, and students have committed to becoming an anti-racist organization (https://pt.usc.edu/about/diversity-anti-racism/). We therefore are determined to attract a diverse group of excellent candidates to be considered for the position.

Although our search is broad, the Division has special needs in several key areas: musculoskeletal biomechanics, exercise science, chronic pain, geriatrics, and health systems research. Candidates may have backgrounds in general areas of biomechanics, computer science, engineering, exercise science, gerontology, neuroscience, motor development, or physical therapy clinical science including health services outcomes. A major objective of the Division is to develop a strong association between basic and clinical research, and to build collaborative and interdisciplinary research programs that complement the research strengths of the Division and USC at large. USC strongly encourages interdisciplinary research.

An earned post-professional doctoral degree is required. For early-stage investigators, a promising publication record and post-doctoral research experience are essential. For mid-career candidates, evidence of prior research funding, teaching aptitude, and graduate student advising is expected. Eligibility for PT licensure in California is preferred, although not required.  

The Division has a well-established 77-year history of teaching excellence and research innovation and impact. This includes the highly ranked DPT program and PhD program in biokinesiology that has been graduating outstanding researchers for 40 years. Our faculty is comprised of basic scientists, applied researchers, and master clinicians working in close partnership with community practitioners. The faculty clinical practices operate in acute care and outpatient settings at Keck Medical Center of USC, as well as in a network of private practices. Teaching facilities are modern and include spacious teaching laboratories, and two state-of-the art lecture halls. Faculty research facilities include motion analysis, exercise science, neuroscience, motor behavior and motor development laboratories and a dedicated clinical research center.

The Division, administratively housed within the Ostrow School of Dentistry, is at the Health Sciences Campus, and enjoys collaborative relationships with the other disciplines of the academic health center including medicine, OT/OS, pharmacy, speech pathology and preventive medicine. Keck Hospital of USC, LA County+USC Medical Center, USC Norris Cancer Hospital, USC Arcadia and Verdugo Hills Hospitals, as well as Children’s Hospital of LA are part of the campus community. Our faculty have strong collaborative relationships with academic programs at the University Park Campus including the Viterbi School of Engineering, School of Gerontology, Iovine and Young Academy for Art, and various Departments in the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. Additionally, we have a long history of collaboration with the Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center. The Division has more than 500 students engaged in graduate study in the PhD and MS programs in Biokinesiology, the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, or clinical residencies in orthopedic, neurologic, sports oncology or pediatric physical therapy. Our Division leads and is affiliated with large externally funded research centers of local, national, and international scope.

Salary and rank will be based on qualifications and experience. USC provides an excellent benefits package. Initial consideration of applications will begin November 1, 2022.

Do you have difficulty finding qualified faculty? Do you look for ways to develop your junior faculty into senior faculty?

Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMU) has developed an online Academic Faculty Residency program.  A full didactic component along with active applied mentorship experiences is designed to support a new instructor’s transition into a role as a full-time productive faculty member.  At this time we are seeking affiliate institutions to host a resident within the faculty residency. The affiliate site will act as the practice setting providing individual mentorship to the resident in education, scholarship, service, and governance in higher education. RMU will provide the overall curriculum, direction, accreditation, and didactic component of the residency. 

An affiliate site must be an institution of higher education that houses an accredited physical therapy program (or candidate for accreditation).

The residency is a term of 18-24 months, depending on academic apponitment (9 vs. 12 months) The didactic component covers 4 semesters of coursework while concurrently gaining experience and mentorship from the affiliate host insitution. The resident will participate in all areas of faculty responsiblities including teaching, scholarship, service, and governance/administration.

Upon completion of the residency, ideally the resident moves into a full-time appointment with the host program. They would also continue their professional development towards a terminal academic doctorate (most courses from the residency transfer to a PhD program).

For more information and to express interest in hosting a faculty resident, please contact Joel Tenbrink, PT, PhD, ATC at joel.tenbrink@rm.edu
