  • Physical Therapy Faculty Position for Assistant or Associate Professor in Exercise Sc

    The Department of Physical Therapy Education at Upstate Medical University invites applications from qualified candidates to join our faculty in a full-time, 12-month, tenure track position. The successful candidate will have responsibilities for integrating exercise science, and its application, across the curriculum, including professional and post-professional levels.

    Ideal candidates will have an academic doctorate degree (PhD, Ed.D, DSc), teaching experience in physical therapy education, an established scholarly agenda, and expertise in exercise science and the application of exercise across the lifespan and throughout the scope of physical therapy practice (wellness to disability). New York State physical therapist licensure or eligibility is required.

    The Physical Therapy Education program has a long tradition of producing graduates with strong clinical skills who obtain positions in all practice arenas. The entry-level DPT program is a 3-year program and enjoys strong support from the clinical community, including over 190 clinical affiliation sites. Our highly involved faculty routinely receives national and local recognition for excellence in teaching, professional service, clinical practice, and scholarship.

    Located in Syracuse’s dynamic “University Hill” neighborhood, SUNY Upstate is the largest employer in the region. Having recently acquired a 300-bed hospital and engaging in building projects of over $350M including a new Heart and Cancer center, Upstate is a thriving university and driver of the Syracuse regional economy. The University includes four health-oriented Colleges with $41M in sponsored research funding.

    Opportunities abound for interdepartmental collaboration with established investigators and access to research within Upstate’s “core facilities”. The Institute of Human Performance (IHP) is a nationally-recognized research facility with state-of the-art equipment including an indoor track, full-size pool with moveable floor, real-time motion capture and force plate capabilities, and a SwimEx® pool. In addition the first phase of planning for a new academic building is well underway and is still on target for an expected opening in 2013. The building will become the home for many of the academic programs, including the entire College of Nursing academic and administrative space, the dean’s office of the College of Health Professions, and the physician assistant and physical therapy programs.

    According to a recent edition of the Places Rated Almanac, Syracuse ranks in the top 10% of the “Best Places to Live” with affordable housing, excellent public education, a wide variety of cultural offerings and proximity to the Finger Lakes and Adirondack regions. Our convenient location at the crossroads of New York State puts us within five hours or less of nearly every major eastern metropolitan area. Syracuse is a scenic treasure amid rolling hills, tranquil lakes and picturesque forests. Our four seasons allow for spectacular springs, endless summer pursuits, colorful autumns, and abundant winter recreation.
