Tenure-Track Faculty Opening

The Program in Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota offers a
newly developed entry-level doctoral program in physical therapy (DPT) and
we are inviting applications for one full-time, 12-month tenured or
tenure-track faculty appointment at a rank commensurate with
experience. This position replaces a current faculty member who is
retiring. Responsibilities include performing faculty research, pursuing
extramural funding, supervising graduate student research, teaching in
areas of content expertise, and participating in faculty governance and
professional service.

The faculty of the Program in Physical Therapy at the University of
Minnesota are also integrally involved with a PhD Program in Rehabilitation
Sciences. The Program in Physical Therapy is an academic unit within the
School of Medicine, and upholds a strong national reputation. The
University of Minnesota is a major public research institution with
substantial opportunities for collaborative work with well-established
senior faculty in physical therapy and other medical and biomedical
disciplines. Currently, Physical Therapy faculty are active in federally
funded research and state of the art teaching in areas of muscle
adaptations with aging and immobilization, neuroplasticity and fMRI,
balance and fall prevention, and biomechanically based mechanisms of injury
and methods of rehabilitation for musculoskelatal dysfunction.

The candidates should demonstrate strong evidence or promise as a
successful scientist. Applicants must currently hold an academic doctoral
degree or be in the final stages of degree completion. Post-doctoral
experience is highly desirable but not required. Research experience and
productivity is expected. Preference will be given to an applicant with an
associated clinical degree in physical therapy with past clinical
experience; however, this is not required. Teaching expertise in
orthopaedic/musculoskeletal content is preferred; however, ability to
contribute to different teaching content areas will be given serious

Anticipated start date for this position would be July of
2003. Applications will be reviewed upon receipt. For further information
