The Department of Physical Therapy in the Congdon School of Health Sciences at High Point University announces a search for a faculty member with expertise in human neuroscience and neuroanatomy. This faculty member may either be on a tenure or clinical track and rank will be commensurate with experience. The Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University offers all of the resources of a research-intensive institution with the quality of life of a small, private institution. We offer two outstanding laboratory spaces in the Human Biomechanics and Physiology Laboratory (HBAPL) and the Virtual Reality and Clinical Gait Analysis Laboratory (VRCGAL). The HBAPL is a 16,000 square foot facility which includes 48, 3D motion capture cameras strategically placed to include coverage of the hardwood court, running and turf functional areas, 14 tri-axial force platforms, a high speed, instrumented force treadmill, integrated wireless EMG, pressure distribution systems, and a DEXA scanner. The VRCGAL has a virtual reality treadmill, an overhead body support device, exoskeleton, and a forceplate mat. In addition, a 500 square foot basic neuroscience research laboratory is also available with the potential to be upfitted to meet the applicant’s research needs.
The faculty is a close-knit, collaborative group that is both accomplished and highly productive.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach anatomy/neuroanatomy and neuroscience in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. Candidates with a PT or other clinical degree that can teach both anatomy and neuroscience are preferred.
