Emeritus faculty, clinical adjunct faculty, and part-time instructors also enrich clinical and academic instruction. Student researchers have the opportunity to present their findings at local, state, and national meetings, contributing to the body of knowledge as well as enhancing their own understanding and scholarship.  The effectiveness of this immersive approach is reflected in a 100% graduation rate and, more importantly, successful licensure of graduates over the last three years of 97% to 100%. Faculty of the Physical Therapy Department collaborate with renowned experts in the Atlanta metro area and throughout the nation conducting research on projects that have been funded by the Department of Defense, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and the American Association of Retired Persons.  The Department’s grant-supported research programs include collaboration with the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Business, and the Neuroscience Institute at GSU, in addition to Emory University, Georgia Tech, and Grady Hospital.

The successful candidate will be a visionary who can lead and enhance the education, research, and service mission through effective communication and collaboration.  A history of progressively responsible positions in academic leadership and management is most desirable, including experience in departmental budgeting and resource allocation, as well as in hiring, developing, and supervising faculty. A student-centric approach to education, a thirst for continued personal academic achievement, and a willingness to collaborate with fundraising efforts are required.  Qualifications include a PhD or equivalent, physical therapy licensure or eligibility to be licensed in Georgia, and experience in teaching, research, and practice.  Qualified candidates may be considered for tenure at the Associate Professor or Full Professor rank.
