    University of Minnesota
    Program in Physical Therapy
    Faculty Opening-Orthopaedic Biomechanics

    The Program in Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota is inviting
    applications for a 12-month tenured or tenure-track faculty position at a
    rank commensurate with experience (Assistant through Full Professor). This
    position is newly created to expand current faculty. Responsibilities
    include pursuing extramural funding, performing faculty research in
    orthopaedic biomechanics, supervising graduate student research and
    teaching biomechanics/orthopaedics content. Research experience and
    productivity is expected as well as integral involvement in the PhD Program
    in Rehabilitation Sciences. Candidates should demonstrate strong evidence
    or promise as successful scientists and educators in rehabilitation
    sciences and have enthusiasm for participating in faculty governance and
    professional service. The position requires an academic doctorate.
    Preference will be given to an applicant with post-doctoral experience, a
    clinical degree in physical therapy, and past orthopaedic clinical
    experience, but applicants without a clinical degree will be considered.

    The Program in Physical Therapy is an academic unit with a 60-year history
    within the School of Medicine, and upholds a strong national
    reputation. Degree programs include the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT),
    and MS and PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences. 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 in areas of biomechanics of
    musculoskeletal dysfunction and rehabilitation, muscle adaptations with
    aging and disease, neuroplasticity and fMRI, and balance and fall prevention.

    Anticipated start date is Summer of 2007. Applications will be reviewed
    beginning July 1, 2006 and the search will remain open until the position
    is filled. Applications should include your curriculum vitae, a cover
    letter outlining your research agenda and teaching experience, and the
    names and contact information and emails for three references. For further
