JOB POSTING: Doctoral Graduate Teaching Assistant Athletic Training

Posted: 11-15-2017

Twelve-month graduate assistant position to provide athletic training clinical services and to serve as an athletic training teaching assistant in the newly developed Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) Program at Moravian College. The Athletic Training Program admitted its first class of students in Summer 2016 and is preparing for a CAATE accreditation site visit in February 2018. 

This is an 18-hour per week position at Moravian College that includes both classroom and laboratory engagement, as well as the opportunity for clinical practice. 

Teaching assistant responsibilities will occur throughout the calendar year.  The teaching assistant will provide support for classroom and laboratory instruction primarily within the Athletic Training Program housed in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences.  There will also be opportunities for autonomous teaching of specific course content in the MSAT program and possibly serving as instructor of record in an undergraduate Health Science course. 

Athletic training clinical services may be provided through a variety of opportunities with Moravian College (collegiate athletics, club sports, intramural sports, dance medicine, performing arts medicine, physician practice, and rehabilitation center).

In addition to completing the Graduate Teaching Assistant role at Moravian College, there is an opportunity to be employed part-time (20 hours/week) with St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN).  Provision of clinical services for SLUHN may include collegiate athletics, secondary school athletics, youth sports, physician practice, industrial medicine, performing arts medicine, and dance medicine.

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-Language 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. 

This position begins June 2018.  Applicants must have an earned master’s degree, current BOC certification, eligibility for PA licensure at time of start date, previous teaching experience and five years of clinical practice experience are preferred.  

Successful candidates will receive an annual stipend ($20,000) to be paid in bi-weekly installments, health benefits, and tuition-wavier ($17,000) for full-time enrollment in the Doctor of Athletic Training Program at Moravian College.  Candidates opting to also be employed with SLUHN will receive a part-time salary (~$20,000) for the clinical services they provide.  The total value of this position, including stipend, part-time salary, tuition waiver, and health benefits is approximately $60,000.
