Posted: 11/15/2017

  • Full-time tenure-track position
  • Beginning June 2018
  • This position is contingent on budget approval

This position is eligible for full benefits.

Twelve-month tenure track position for an assistant or associate professor to teach in the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program and the new Doctor of Athletic Training Program in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences.  This is a new faculty line and will constitute the fourth full-time faculty member in the growing and vibrant Athletic Training Program.  The Department will house graduate programs in Athletic Training (MSAT & DAT), Occupational Therapy (MSOT), Speech Pathology (MS-SLP) and Physical Therapy (DPT). The Athletic Training program is seeking to admit its third class of students in Summer 2018 and is preparing for a CAATE accreditation site visit in February 2018.

Position begins June 2018. Must have an earned Master’s degree in Athletic Training or a related field (earned doctoral degree or current enrollment in a doctoral program preferred), eligibility for PA licensure, and a minimum of three years clinical experience as an athletic trainer. Addition of licensure in PT or OT preferred. Preference will be given to those individuals with teaching experience, clinical instruction experience and experience with CAATE Accreditation process.

The individual filling this position will primarily teach in the MSAT program with the addition of teaching one to two courses per year in the DAT program (based on area of expertise).  Both graduate Athletic Training programs allow for professional mentoring, leadership opportunities, and collaborative teaching opportunities.  Faculty in the AT programs are also expected to assist in all aspects of program design, development, implementation, assessment, and administration.  

The vision for the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at Moravian College is to develop collaborative, inter-professional graduate programs in Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Physical Therapy within a single academic unit. By combining an entrepreneurial spirit and a unique curricular structure, students and faculty are able to engage with one another across disciplines in a truly inter-professional educational environment modeled toward best practices in the clinical setting. This collaborative environment is designed to foster student learning and engagement while avoiding the traditional discipline-specific silos that impede learning.
