    Assistant or Associate Professor

    The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of New England is inviting applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor, with pediatric expertise, to teach in our Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Our accredited program was established in 1980 and is housed in the College of Health Professions, offering opportunities for participation in the College’s Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Health, and Healing (I²H²) initiative. This initiative is a multi-faceted approach to education, training, research, and practice and aims to provide students and faculty with opportunities to work collaboratively to promote the best possible care and health outcomes. College and department facilities include a state-of-the-art Biomechanics Lab with EMG, video analysis and force plate equipment in addition to high-tech human patient simulators.

    The position is a twelve-month, tenure track appointment with teaching, scholarship, and service required. Departmental teaching needs include Normal Development, Physical Therapy Management of Children with Disorders of the Neuromuscular System, and pediatric content in other body systems courses. Additional opportunities exist to teach in other courses in the curriculum, supervise student research, teach an elective, assist in clinical education, and participate in clinical practice. Qualified applicants will have a doctoral degree (Ph.D., Ed.D. or post-professional DPT) and clinical experience related to the teaching responsibilities. Preference will be given to applicants with ABPTS certification or teaching experience. Candidates must be eligible for physical therapy licensure in Maine. Rank and salary are commensurate with qualifications.

    UNE is an independent, co-educational institution with two campuses on the southern coast of Maine. The Physical Therapy program is located on the Portland campus and is close to excellent medical facilities and clinics. Portland is Maine’s largest city and the business, financial, medical, and retail center, yet its relatively small size provides an exceptional living environment. A vibrant cultural atmosphere, with exceptional theater, concerts, and dining, characterizes Portland. In addition, the seaside location provides ample opportunities for water recreation and is within easy driving distance to inland lakes and mountains.
