    Successful candidates will be physical therapists who holdacademic doctoral degrees and who have or are eligible forlicensure in the state of Vermont. Candidates are expected to have an interest in collaborative teamwork, be active in research and/or have potential to develop an independent scholarship agenda while being committed to teaching, advising, and professional development of our students. Although not required, completion of a postdoctoral research fellowship is strongly recommended. Applicants with scholarly and teaching expertise in pediatrics, medical/surgical/cardiopulmonary management, leadership, pain science and rehabilitation technologies are encouraged to apply; however, all qualified candidates are welcome to submit applications for consideration. Teaching responsibilities will be dependent on content expertise.

    Established in 1972, the DPT program is well recognized for its quality, research and innovative teaching and learning opportunities ( The small class size of 40 students allows for a variety of teaching approaches between clinical and tenure-track faculty, as well as time for scholarly activity. The DPT program is an integral component of the Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences within the University. Uniquely positioned on the UVM main campus, along with our academic colleagues in Medicine, Health Sciences, Engineering, Nutrition and Psychology and our clinical colleagues in the Medical Center, the College provides an exciting academic environment with excellent collaborative relationship potentials for new faculty. The College priorities focus on promoting excellence in research, teaching and learning, interprofessional education, and practice collaborations within a stimulating Academic Medical Center environment.

    The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science integrates three complementary applied human science programs with strong interdisciplinary research ties – physical therapy, exercise science, and athletic training. Departmental facilities include the recently renovated Human Motion Analysis lab which houses multiple force plates, EMG, and three-dimensional biomechanical equipment for static and dynamic human movement research; a physical activity and exercise behavior lab; and a neurophysiology lab that utilizes TMS and EEG. Other laboratory space for bench research interests is a potential through our interdisciplinary faculty collaborators.

    The University of Vermont combines faculty-student relationships most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution and medical center. The University is home to 10,612 undergraduates, 1,552 graduate students, 466 medical students and 1,685 full- and part-time faculty. Located in Burlington, Vermont (perennially voted one of America’s most exciting small cities), UVM’s setting in a valley on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green Mountain ranges, inspires visitors and residents alike.
